Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. For the most part, no. The biggest thing to be concerned with over time is that your refractive error may drift or regress closer to what it was over several years and your result won't be quite s
Doctor DanB : as sharp if that happens. But other than that, there aren't any significant side effects from LASIK that affect the eyes on a delayed basis, years after the surgery.

Do you have any recommendation about the clinic? I live in LA

JACUSTOMER-7ma0ukxs- :

Doctor DanB : Rest from what?
JACUSTOMER-7ma0ukxs- :

rest after the surgery

JACUSTOMER-7ma0ukxs- :

i mean i can not watch TV right after it, right?

Doctor DanB : No, you can watch TV right afterward. There's no harm in that. Your eyes may revolt a bit if you do it too long. But that won't hurt your eyes.
Doctor DanB : Pod you have any other questions I can help you with tonight?
Doctor DanB : Do you... ( that should've said)
