Re: Extremely Dry Eyes after LASIK
hi, I have been using restatis for 2 months now, pre lasik. I just had the lasik 2 days ago. I think the restatis does help, it just takes time, so I think you might see some improvement if you are just starting it! I also just got the plugs in the lower ducts, that combined with the restatis does seem to make an improvement! I agree however, that lasik surgeons should be checking the dry eye situation before even progressing with lasik. I must be lucky as my eye clinic did do this. I mentioned I had dry eye when I went in for the pre exam and they did the paper test, and I basically had nothing in my eye. So I then took restatis for 2 months and did nightly eye lid scrubs for 2 months before I had the lasik. It's only been a few days, but i've experienced very little to no dry symptoms yet-after the surgery. I think it's because of the pre-prepping for the dry eyes. Good luck the Restatis! It does help.
