Q Does ‘crying’ affect the LASIK outcome?

Ans.    In some cases, crying has not resulted in any harm, in some it has as below.

Any rubbing of the eyes immediately after LASIK can pose a risk to the ‘flap’ which has been taken. The  risk is basically either in the form of creating folds, wrinkles or displacement of the same.

What will you  feel? Symptoms of “something in my eye’  or pain if flap is shifted or displaced, unclear hazy vision or blurred vision if flap fold or flap wrinkles. The treating doctor would know if there is any issue when he/she examines the eyes under the slit lamp check. If any issues like wrinkles etc, he has to treat the same.
