People run into dry eyes as we age, with hormonal change with steroid medications, with falls and whiplashes as trigenminal nerve can be affected.
But did you know that people get drier eyes after LASIK too?
While the vision is improved, the binocular status may be staying the same. The brain may use the pre-surgery memory for eye muscle control, including those smallest muscles in the body for eye focusing.
Some may run into more glare and reduced kinetic fields. These can be improved with optometric eye care.
If you haven't check your eyes since LASIK refractive eye surgery, it's great idea to check it once a year.
