Yes, its possible. If the problem occurs, it typically takes place on the day of surgery, and the likelihood of its occurrence is less than 2%. Well float the flap back into place and that takes care of the problem.Late dislocations are also a possibility, albeit a faint one. Weve had 3 patients in the past 10 years experiencing direct blows to the eye that disloacted the flap.We repaired thempromptlyand all patients recovered excellent vision. Interestingly, since switching to IntraLase, we haven't encountered a single flap dislocation.
