Lasik dry eyes
Jun 7, 2006
Hi all....i am 4 wks. post op lasik surgery. My left eye is fine, my right eye is very dry. Had plug put in yesterday with limited success. Refresh Celluvisc only eye drop that offers me some relief. Also have fibromyalgia and am 57 y.o. No history dry eye previous to surgery. Surgeon is excellent, well know in my community. The doc treating me also had lasik surgery and it took her 6 mo. for her dry eye to improve. I really would not mind waiting 6 mo. Anxiety has set in and of course i am worried i will be one of those who will have permanent problems.
My question...the dryness does not show up with physicians examination. No overt findings...with their instruments my eye does not look dry and my eyelids are fine. Is this unusual? How can my eye feel dry and not show up in examination?
One last question...i use bion tears and refresh celluvisc. Do i really need to throw out the container after one use?
Many thanks for your response......sara
