Question about Flap edge and starbursts

Postby lboogie » Thu Apr 24, 2008 6:44 am

Today, a OD who has has a lot of post-lasik experience examined my eyes. He said that my flap edges were scared more than is normal for 5 months post-op. He said that is what is causing my starbursts. He said I was most likely an aggressive healer and scared quickly. I had the flaps created with intralase.

What I don't understand is how? My records indicate my flap diameter is 9.2mm -- the only way my pupils dilate that far is with dialating drops.

Please advise.
