    My office manager had Lasik in October...nationally-recognized surgeon, newest equipment. He now sees halos around lights at night. He was told it was possible/likely but he couldn't imagine how annoying it would be until he had it done. He sees well...during the day.

    Thanks, I've given him that information. His surgeon would not make any predictions or projections regarding the condition.

    Initially the halo may be almost intolerable, but will diminish over a period of months. Some may remain permanently. By the nature of the procedure, the halo effect should be more or less proportional to the amount of correction that is dialed in. As the amount of correction is increased, the area (diameter) of the reworked cornea decreases. Under reduced lighting conditions the iris may open enough to "see" the edge of the corrected area, which is to say it also sees the the uncorrected portion of the cornea.
