MEDICAL WARNING:
50 PERCENT RECALLS ON
LASER EYE SURGERY IN HUMID CLIMATES....

Dr. Keith Walter, assistant professor of ophthalmology at Wake Forest Research in North Carolina, USA published his results in the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery:

  • The hotter and more humid it is when patients get laser surgery to correct poor vision, the more likely they are to need fine-tuning;
     
  • 50 per cent of eyes need a follow-up procedure compared in wet and humid months compared to none in drier winter months;
     
  • The extra moisture in the air may reduce the laser energy absorbed by the cornea, which is reshaped during the procedure.
