Dr. Matthew Russell discusses eye rubbing after laser eye surgery
It’s a very good idea, after LASIK surgery, in particular, not to rub your eyes at all, particularly in the first few weeks after the procedure.
Incredibly, the laser flap seals down very rapidly under the surface of the eye. Generally, a small amount of eye rubbing does not disturb the treatment. Our strong advice is to avoid eye rubbing and instead put the eyedrops in that have been prescribed and given after the laser surgery.
