The one side effect of laser eye surgery

Wow, it’s already been 5 months since I had my laser eye surgery.  Unfortunately, I was wearing extended-wear contacts for 5 years before that, so my lifestyle hasn’t changed at all.  I would say that the surgery was a total success, I don’t even experience that starburst effect that everyone complains about.

The one major side effect that I have is intense piercing pain on the first blink of the morning.  The first time each morning that I try to focus on anything, or move my eyeballs with my lids closed, I experience intense pain.  My optometrist says that it’s just because of dryness.  I applied some Tears Naturel PM for 2 or 3 days, and it sort of helped, but it’s a huge pain.  It’s an ointment that you apply directly into your eyes, and you need to use a mirror to apply it properly.  I tend to fall asleep while watching tv on my bed, so the ointment thing is a huge cramp in my life pattern.  Ergo no ointment.  Ergo intense piercing pain every morning.

If I could keep wearing extended wear contacts, I think I’d choose it over the surgery.

Yet another eye checkup coming up in January.

    What’s up, its good piece of writing regarding media print, we all understand media is a enormous source of data.
