Thank u for the quick reply that was so helpful and also comforting to know that the temporal LPI actually cause less issue for you! I think I will request to have the LPI placed temporally on my right eye. I was very upset knowing that I will most likely have to live with dysphotpsia for the rest of my life and the laser was supposed to help my vision but instead it made it worse.. but after reading ur response and a couple other clinical reports, it seems that the streak of light will become less noticeable over time. And just curious, has ur doctor done temporal LPI on any other patients in the past? Because my doctor mainly does superior LPI, so I don’t know how safe is it for me to have him perform this procedure on me with a method that he doesn’t have much experience with.

Hi Sharon I read ur posts about having a temporal LPI. I’m so glad I found ur posts! They are very informative. How r u doing now?? I had my left eye done a week ago and a day after the procedure I noticed a streak of light in my inferior visual field, it’s very annoying especially when I’m driving. My doctor positioned the hole in between 11 and 1 o’clock. I too read several articles on how temporal LPI actually reduces the chance of having visual disturbances but since it’s fully exposed it still poses some risks. I’m scheduled to have my right eye done in a week but I’m not sure if I should request a temporal placement? Since u had both done, which method caused the least side effective for u?
