I am 15 months post lasik and still suffering from mild to sometimes moderate dry / or itchy eyes. I went to the doctor about 3 months ago and he put me on restasis . After about a month on it, he said there was a big difference in the topography and said " you may have to be on this the rest of your life" I did not think much of it at the time because I still have hope the eyes will heal, but I am now starting to wonder. I must say I never, never had dry eyes before the surgery, but I do have Hepatitis C and arthritis, and maybe even some thyroid issues and who knows what else. I suspect these health problems may have interfered with the healing process . The flap was made with a blade , and if I knew what I know now , I would have done something different for sure, but who knows, I might have ended up with corneal haze or something else with PRK, but the laser microkeretome might have been better. That said, I will stay on the restasis for a while, and see what happens, but like the others asked, CAN THE EYES IMPROVE WITH THE RESTASIS AND THEN GET OFF IT. I UNDERSTAND IT IS USED EARLY IN THE HEALING PROCESS BUT I THINK BOSTON AND MYSELF ARE WONDERING IF LATE COMERS WHO START ON IT SAY 1 YEAR OR MORE AFTER LASIK CAN SEE PERMANENT IMPROVEMENT AND THEN MAYBE, JUST MAYBE GET OFF IT.I HAVE YET TO SEE A CORNEAL SPECIALIST AND THAT IS MY NEXT MOVE. BOSTON DID YOU GET ON THE RESTASIS?
