Re: red spot shifted after lasik
Your doctor is exactly right and the red spots are the result of the mild pressure from the suction cup of the laser flap device. I use Naphcon A, which is available over the counter, right before I perform the LASIK prodecure, and I have found this bruising to occur less often. You could still try Naphcon A now and see if it might not resolve the red spots a little faster. Regardless, the red spots will resolve completely and mean nothing other than a slight temporary bruising. Whether they resolve in time for the upcoming event you are going to is another matter.
