After LASEK surgery myopia retreated, corneal opacity
Q: A woman in her mid-20s. Does ultraviolet rays affect your eyes a lot after LASEK surgery? How does myopia regression come? It’s been about two and a half months since I got LASEK. Currently, my eyesight is about 1.0. There are cases of dryness or coldness in the eyes once in a while.
The hospital told me to wear protective glasses up to six months, but I wore them only at the beginning of the surgery for a while, but now I rarely wear them. I work at an entertainment bar at night, so I don’t get sunlight during the day.
Is the night light the same whether it’s dark or bright? Sometimes I feel like my eye sight is declining again, so I’m a little worried even if it seems to be a temporary phenomenon.
I put the eye drops well according to the doctor’s instructions. I know you have to take good care of your eyes, but it doesn’t go well over time. What if my eyesight drops again? Is there a high probability of myopia?
A: Long exposure to ultraviolet rays after LASEK surgery increases the likelihood of corneal opacity. Corneal opacity refers to the blurring of the cornea. The incidence of high myopia is high. Recently, most ophthalmologists do M-Lasek, so corneal opacity has been significantly reduced.
It is recommended to wear sunglasses for 3 to 6 months to prevent ultraviolet rays. Myopia regression refers to the recurrence of myopia. Usually, it is highly likely to recur from high myopia. Myopia regression may have a different probability of recurrence depending on the constitutional difference in wound healing reactions.
Reading a lot of computers or books does not mean that myopia will recur, so don’t worry. The amount of ultraviolet rays from the light is very small, so you don’t have to worry about the light.
If myopia recurs, you can undergo reoperation if you have enough corneal thickness.
