How to prevent dry eyes after LASIK?Eye & LASIK
I would like to know how I can prevent dry eyes after my LASIK procedure. For example, are there certain things to watch out for/do/don’t do, such that I can minimize my chances of developing dry eyes?
Most patient’s eyes will get a bit drier in the time just after LASIK (first few weeks), and this is related to the surgery. Ie you cannot influence this aspect of it that much.
You can however, minimise the effects of dryness on the eye after LASIK by
- Using eyedrops as instructed by your doctor
- Taking frequent regular breaks from reading/computer use eg every 20-30 minutes for a few minutes at a time
- Adjusting the air-conditioning in your room if possible so that the air is less cold and less dry
- Making sure you stay hydrated and get enough sleep
