    when can i rub my eyes lasik

    I am just wondering if I'll ever be able to rub my eyes again HARD. I realize in one week I can go back to make-up, however the method I use to remove the make-up is to put make-up remover on my fingers, and basically rub my lashes (top and bottom) while my eyes are squeezed shut. I almost always get make-up debris and cleanser in my eye, but it doesn't sting because of the remover I use. However, to get my lashes really clean, I end up using quite a bit of force. Will I be able to remove make-up like this eventually? What about when you wake-up or get something in your eye? Can you ever rub your eyes hard like you use to? People say you can rub your eyes after 1 week, 2 weeks, etc after Lassie surgery, but do they mean the the same amount of force you used before surgery?
    Thanking you in advance,

    Exclamation Re: when can i rub my eyes lasik

    Not after one week!!! who told you that? For make-up it's a little delicate situation. In my notes it's written after one week but they're clear about that: rub your eyes very delicately when you clean around your eyes.

    If i were you i'd just try to do some compromises on the make-up. I had the full permission to rub my eyes after 3 months if my eyes still didn't hurt. They were still sensitive so i rub them after my shower, to dry my face but with reserve.

    And yes, someday you will be able to rub your eyes like you used to do when you remove make-up.

    For my part, why i'm mad on the center were i did the lasik surgery, it's because they never told me the lasik was weakening the structure of my eyes for life but don't worry it's just because i wanted to do Boxe (and i never will). Don't mind really, the only story i heard about the flap dislocation is in a very violent car accident. The air bags with the impact completlty dislocate one eye flap and they never found it anymore. It's an isolated case of very violent accident were the guy broke his jaw,nose and few others bones of his body... i guess it's the most horrible story you've been told about that cause even if you had an accident like this, it is possible to replace the flap same like the day of the surgery and it will heal about the same way.

    Sorry, if i'm a little extreme in my exemple but i just try to be as much informative as i harassed the eye specialist with (too many) questions in a way to receive answer that he would prefer not to tell to everyone.

    Hope this help, in the good way.
