Headaches

Postby Susan » Sat Feb 17, 2007 10:29 pm

Hi, I had lasik surgery on Friday 2/9 (8 days ago) and had headaches for the first couple of days. They went away and today I have had the worst headache all day. Is this a normal side effect of lasik?

Headaches are not normal. They do occur, but it is not a normal part of the Lasik healing process. Notify your surgeon of the problem and also try to isolate when they occur, such as morning but not evening, at work but not driving, etc. This can help in determining the cause.

Glenn, Thank you very much for the info. I think it is dry eye. It went away (the headache) and today at my visit we discussed the dry eye issue. I was on restasis and will be using it again 2 weeks post surgery to keep the dry eye under control.

Dry eye can certainly cause headaches. You may want to read our article about Lasik dry eye treatment.
