Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
what type of laser did you have? was is Lasik or similar laser to correct for glasses?
I had a Lasik treatment from Optical Express around about May last year.
Lasik is notorious for causing dry eye symptoms due to the fact that the surgical flap severs the corneal nerves and hance leads to decreased tear production. You can see your eye doctor if the lubricants are not helping enough and go about one of two ways....1st there are these little plugs that help your eyes maintain there tears, called punctal plugs, 2nd and more feasable is a medication call Restasis that helps us make more tears. Restasis is an eye drop that helps us make more tears, and many of my Lasik patients are on this since dry eyes are a common outcome of Lasik, Regards *****
Is this a short term problem?
Also are there any natural rememdies?
