: Would someone please let me know what the "halo" some people, who have had the surgery, see at night is.
: Is it permanent? can it be severe? I have a very bad astigmatism in one eye and it can be very sensitive
: to light. Will I have light sensitivity after the surgery?

I am 4 weeks post op. I have minimal halo or glare around lights at night. I stress, very little. It is kind of like a starburst effect, but doesn't bother me. Others can have debilitating haze.
I had -1 astig in both eyes. Astig. isn't the biggest factor in halos. Pupil size, steepness of cornea effect it as well.
Have you had a Lasik exam done yet?
