rubbing your eyes

Postby baseballfan » Thu Jan 18, 2007 5:32 am

This will be my last question, I promise! I am eight days post lasik. I woke up and caught myself lightly rubbing my eyes. Are my eyes healed enough or should I be concerned?

Well...it seems to soon to be rubbing your eyes. I believe that your eyes are still in a healing period...keeping them more vulnerable than the usual. "Play safe" hehe

I am more concerned about what I may have done. I am not wanting to rub them in the future.

You can review a detailed article about Lasik flap healing that may be helpful. If you rub your eyes too soon after surgery it hurts and your vision gets bad.

If you had an abrasion during the procedure (4%) you may have cause for concern if the abrasion isn't 100% healed. If you were woken up with pain in your eye, there is the possibility that the cell wall on your cornea was scratched. Use eye drops very frequently if this was the case. Your best bet if you are concerned is to call the folks who performed the procedure in the first place.
