I don't know if anyone here will be able to help me out, but I've been researching LASIK eye surgery and I've read alot about people having starburst and halo abberations after the surgery and there is a new form of LASIK that helps relieve those problem, wave-front LASIK. But what I really want to know is if this surgery will have any effect on a preexisting abberations, specifically a halo. I can't seem to find anything out online on the effectiveness of the surgery on preexisting halos, any information would be helpful.

If I were you, I'd talk about this with your doctor, or even better an optician. Since they should know the most about it.

I undergo a Lasik surgery last year, but it was a tough decision for me because my girl told me that im too young to undergo such surgery (she’s referring to the risk involved in the said surgery) but a friend of mine already did it 2 years priory to my LASik and he shared his knowledge and informed the risk pros and cons about LASik. He also mentioned that as with any surgical procedures, there are risk associated with LAsik, but in the hand of highly skilled and experience surgeon. Reason I made up a decision that im going to do it. For almost 20 years i suffered astigmatism and ive been wearing contact lens for almost half of my life, made me not to do things to the fullest. After surgery for 2 months I experienced night side effects (halos) but after that, I able to see 2020without the help of neither glasses nor contacts. The best part of it is I can now do things to the fullest like diving and some stuff that I like to do since I was young. I consider having LASik a wonderful and a life changing experience to me. Im very proud and contented with my life right now and I feel good and look good about it. It’s a life changing for me. Thanks to my2020.

A general discussion forum is not the best place to seek medical advice.

That's for sure. Go see a specialist man.
