What is Post Lasik Pain

 

Every year thousands of people undergo the relatively simple LASIK surgery to enhance their looks as they want to stop wearing glasses or eye contact lenses. It relatively eases and the pain-free procedure is what is making it a draw, and clinics are sprouting all over the world, in colonies. Unfortunately, not one everyone is able to enjoy a pain-free Lasik surgery. These people though in a small minority suffer constant pain after the surgery is over. They need to go back to the eye doctor also known as an ophthalmologist to get this rare fall out treated.

 

During the surgery, nerves in the anterior cornea are severed during the formation of the flap, and deeper corneal nerves are destroyed by laser ablation. Often the pain is a result of dry eye, sometimes it is not. The cause is regenerated nerve fibers in the cornea, which may lead to corneal neuralgia (pain). The pain can be quite terrible and affect around 10% of those who have had this surgery.

 

For this rare and debilitating condition, bringing in doctors who are pain specialists and put the patient on serious medication is the way out.

 

Some common suggestions for preventing post-surgery pain include

  • Take the pain medication as advised
  • Rest the eyes
  •  Use the eye drops as and when prescribed
  • Wear the eye shields as suggested
  •  Avoid any dry eye scenarios
  • Avoid the harsh glare of the sun
