No surgery/ medicine is without side effects.But it is also a fact that as doctors/surgeons it is our duty to see a patients fitness and safety margins before surgery and so we do all those pre LASIK tests.
The side effects could be dry eye/ecstasies etc if all the criteria are not meticulously checked before surgery.
There are few very RARE complications of this procedure. But, these days with advances in Lasik procedure, it is very much SAFE. Recovery is pretty fast. Less restriction are there. You can safely go for it.
