Laser eye surgery is a fairly common procedure that people with vision problems undergo to improve their eyesight. Like the name implies, it uses lasers to make corrections to the cornea. Since 1999, around 10 million people in the U.S. have undergone this surgery.
Though the success rate for this kind of surgery is high, complications are possible. One woman on TikTok tells her story of the chronic pain she's had since receiving the surgery.
