3 questions post freakout...

Postby montrealer » Wed Jun 03, 2009 1:56 am

my eye was feeling really blurry so I looked in the mirror and it looked like there was a tear in the flap and it was flipped over itself

I freaked out and called the lasik place, they advised me to put drops and if there;s no pain the flap is probably not torn and it was just something on my eye.

Q1: is it possible to see the flap with a conventional mirror?
Q2: does it ever happen that a tear in the flap occurs 1 week post surgery?
Q3: Do you necessiraly feel pain if damage to the flap occurs?


now when i look in the mirror, all seems normal should I still get it checked out by a doc?

Based upon your description of what you believe you saw, you would have experienced excruciating writhing on the floor type of pain.

At the next regular appointment or if you have any additional troubles.
