Are there any risks associated with PTK?

As with all forms of surgery, PTK does carry some potential hazards. However, you should note that most often the surgery is performed safely and complication-free.

The PTK procedure is permanent, and you should always consider any potential risks, no matter how small or rare, before committing yourself to the surgery. Regarding PTK the potential risks and complications can include:

  • Halos
  • Glare
  • Starbursts
  • Sensitivity to light

For most people, the above occurrences are temporary and mild. However, a minority of patients do suffer permanently. During your consultation, your surgeon will give further insight to these risks and will be able to incorporate the possibility when determining how suitable you are for PTK.
