bloodshot rings after Intralase

Postby critrcntry » Thu Dec 14, 2006 5:46 pm

My daughter had lasik with Intralase four weeks ago. During the Intralase procedure on her left eye, the doctor lost suction and had to start over again. She said this part was painful. Is it common to lose the suction? Also, she had big bloodshot rings in the whites of both eyes, worse in the one where suction was lost. It took 3 weeks for this to go awy. Is this common? I am scheduled to have my lasik soon and am worried about this.

I don't know if it's common to "lose suction" but I had Intralase Lasik and also had the bloodshot rings. I think it took about 3 weeks for mine to go away too. I had no pain what so ever with any of my procedure.

I had LASIK with Intralase 4 months ago and also had the "suction hickeys" on my eyeballs...and I also had quite a bit of pain when the suction was applied. But I am happy to say everything has healed fine and my vision is excellent!!
