Vivien has very dry and sensitive eyes, that would get red, sore and tired after several hours of contact lens wear. She was never able to go an entire day without removing her contacts.
We tested Vivien's tear production capability at the initial visit, and determined that she had more than adequate tear-making capability. I therefore felt very good about supporting her interest in LASIK.
She has done quite well since her care, which was rendered in November '01. She has not complained of any noticeable dryness (and we have asked!). We did encourage her to use frequent moisture drops in the early period after her surgery, as we do for all our patients.
