Possible Risks & Side Effects

Possible Risks & Side Effects

Like any medical procedures, none are without its risks. Fortunately, most of the risks are mitigated with the experience of our surgeons, our strict patient selection and the state-of-the-art Schwind Amaris laser machine. Most of the side effects are temporary, and most evident during the early stages of recovery.

In terms of safety, the TransPRK procedure is very safe and will not affect any other part of the eye. The Schwind Amaris 750S has a 6 dimensional eye tracking algorithm that compensates for rapid eye movements during the procedure. This allows the laser to be accurately applied on its intended points despite some minor eye movements during the procedure.

Possible Risks & Side Effects

Hazy vision

During the first 3-5 days while the epithelium is recovering, vision may be hazy and can fluctuate for up to 2 weeks.

Possible Risks & Side Effects

Glare and haloes

For 1-2 weeks, lights may appear glaring and you might find driving at night more challenging than usual. Dry eyes may also cause more glare.

Possible Risks & Side Effects

Dry eyes

For a few weeks, your eyes may feel dry. Take regular breaks if you are using the computer, and don’t forget to use your lubricant eyedrops regularly.

Possible Risks & Side Effects


For the first few days, your eyes may be sensitive and tearing. That does not mean your eyes are not dry. You should still use your eye drops as advised and avoid rubbing your eyes. Use a clean tissue to wipe off excess tears.
