After laser eye surgery, patients occasionally report an increased sensitivity to aperture. Munich, 20.12.2011. The doctors of the smile eyes eye clinics know this issue in the run-up to a possible operation. Smile eyes answered some of the most important questions around the topic of glare phenomena. People with a very wide pupil in the dark can increasingly suffer from glare phenomena. The light from headlights hides them, for example, more than people with narrower pupils.
Someone has especially large pupils, he may suffer from more at night after a laser treatment so-called halos. Halos are”signs of glare, halos, stray lights, halos around light sources. As pupil width represents the main reason for any aperture sensitivity after a laser eye surgery, it is essential to determine the pupil width in the dark to avoid this side effect in the run-up to a planned operation. Halos were an issue in the early days of laser surgery. When using modern lasers, such as those in the Smile eyes eye clinics are used, this problem no longer arises. The advantage lies in the larger treatment areas of today’s laser.
Their diameter was previously at 4,5 mm. If a patient in the dark had E.g. 6 mm wide pupils, he looked at the edge by untreated corneal tissue. Thus, glare phenomena occurred increasingly. The patient was in the worst case even night driving be disabled. Today is the treatment area in the standard 6.5 mm and can be adapted to the pupil width. With large pupils will, if necessary, apart from a laser treatment. If one goes into the hands of an experienced surgeon, pronounced, persistent halos can no longer arise. The prerequisite is that the surgeon in a modern laser available. The surgeon determines pupil width in the dark, which is an important criterion of suitability for a laser or LASIK treatment at smile eyes in a detailed preliminary study.

Each patient has temporarily dry eyes after laser treatment. The expression it is individual and depends on the individual patient. The surface of the eye is not perfectly wetted, not regularly covered in tear film, stray light effects also occur. This patch, when the tear film again stabilized.
