Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Hello everyone,

I had the surgery done in March 2006. Right from the start, my eyes were really dry. I think they said it was a Q3 level of dryness (something like 75% of my eye was really dry, and Q4 being the worst.) At my one month check up they said I would most likely have to consider tear duct plugs. I was really starting to regret having had the surgery, and having images of using drops for the rest of my life. They also recommended increasing my water intake, and flax seed supplements. I was using Refresh LiquidGel ~ 4 times a day, and Refresh Tears between that. I was lucky in that my eyes weren't all that sore - though 8 hours in front of a computer daily sure didn't help. Mornings were the only time I really noticed.

But here's the ray of light: all dryness was gone by 3 months. I was taking the flax seed, but not as diligently as I should have been. It's now been almost 6 months and I'm completely satisfied. Just wanted to let everyone know that this too may pass. I truly thought my eyes were ruined - and quite suddenly they were all better. Hope it works out this well for everyone.
