the cornea has a high density of nerve endings. dry eyes can cause feeling of heaviness, sharp pains, sensation of pain behind the eyes and/or headache.
ok, I will try t consume more omega 3 oils like flax. But wouldn't I have less of these nerve endings there because they were severed during lasik?
meaning I'd be less effected in this way by dry eye than usual?
they are decreased due the lasik, but regrow.
not to 100%, but pretty close.
You can have more dry eyes after lasik because less corneal sensitivity, causing decrease tear production.
ok, I'll try artificial tears again as well. hopefully that, along with a new prescription will resolve the vision issue.
