Ever since I had cosmetic surgery

Ever since I had cosmetic surgery round my eyes, my eyes have been sore. Could there be a connection? Kathleen xxxxxxx Christchurch, New Zealand

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Yes, there can definitely be a connection.
Doctor DanB : Anytime there is cosmetic surgery involving the eyelids, the eyes can become more dry, irritated and therefore more sore. Most people get over this at some point, but it would help you to get over this quicker if you use artificial tears 4-5x/day, everyday, for at least 2-3 weeks or more if needed.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX all I wanted to know. I've suspected this but haven't suggested it to my doctor. I thought it might be a remote chance.

Doctor DanB : Good luck to you. My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation. For a formal medical opinion and/or recommendation you must see an eye doctor. Thanks for your inquiry!
