Night vision problems are common and I was warned about it but did not
experience it. I believe they only occur for a couple of months after
surgery 'in most cases' (the surgeon's standard disclaimer). I discounted
the problem before surgery because, when I thought about it, I realised
that I already had this problem from my spectacles, usually because they
were never perfectly clean!
