According to the US Centers
for Disease Control, Lyme disease was named in 1977 when arthritis
was observed in a cluster of children in and around Lyme, Connecticut.
Further investigation revealed that Lyme disease is caused by the
bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi. These bacteria are transmitted
to humans by the bite of infected deer ticks and cause more than
16,000 infections in the United States each year.
Lyme disease most often
presents with a characteristic "bull's-eye" rash, erythematic migraines,
accompanied by nonspecific symptoms such as fever, malaise, fatigue,
headache, muscle aches, and joint aches. Although there is very
little information about Lyme Disease and refractive surgery like
Epi-Lasik, etc., but we know of at least one patient who contracted
Lyme Disease shortly after surgery and had great difficulty with
dry eye and
keratitis. Due to the possibility of inflammation of the
cornea, accurate measurements of the cornea and
refractive error would be impossible. It seems reasonable to
avoid refractive surgery until the Lyme Disease has been successfully
