Hi everyone! I had my one month post op visit today and I have a few questions: The doctor said my flap looks beautiful and my vision is perfect (20/20.) Just wondering how long is it actually a "flap"? Is it always a flap or does it eventually heal to the point where it's no longer referred to as a flap? This is probably a stupid question but I think I remember reading somewhere that the flap heals after a year or so and it's as if the flap was never made?

Also, my eye doctor said I can start using Refresh or Systane tears out of the bottle. Has anyone else used these? Are they still preservative free? I don't want to get addicted to eye drops! I have been using the single vial drops and I just reuse them until they're gone, but they are expensive so switching to bottled drops would be cheaper. Just wondering if anyone else is using them.

Thanks!

Do your eyes hurt at all? Under bright lights? Any red veins? Was it microkeratome or intralase? I use preservative free Systane, they are mild and non irritating.
