Exclamation Eye always hurt after Lasik

So I had lasik surgery done and had a regression a year after.. so I decided to get it again.. the first time I had -5 in both eyes. Before the last surgery I had -0.75 in both eyes, so I decided to get lasik again. Anyway its been 13 months since the surgery and ever since the surgery I have pain behind my eyes (both). Pressure and pulling sensation gets a lot worse when watching tv and really bad when reading (book or computer).

I had went back to the lasik surgeon and they tested my eyes.. I had +1 in both eyes after the surgery. 3 months out from the surgery they tested again and I had +0.75 in both eyes.. At 6 months post op I had Left +0.75 and Right +0.50. At 8 months I had +0.5 in BOTH eyes. At 11 months post op I went to an optometrist and had +0.25 in BOTH eyes. Went back to Lasik after and got the same results, however when they dilated my eyes to see true refraction I had +0.50 in both eyes (So not much difference they claimed).

I still feel a pulling sensation behind my eyes and the pulling gets worse when watching tv, and much worse when reading (I can see the words perfectly just that pulling makes reading un bearable) They told me that the prescription I have is to small since I am only 23 years old I can accommodate +0.25 EASY, And +0.5 EASY! They claim to me its not the prescription causing problems.

If so than what is causing this pulling sensation behind my eyes.. I had a ophthalmologist look at my eyes and they to said my eyes are fine.. but perhaps a little dry. I had to leave school because I can't hold my eyes to read anymore with that horrible pulling sensation.. Thanks!

you have to use special eye drops for the dryness on a regular bases for now on every day maybe more than 3 times a day depending on the dryness. I was asked to get this done but after talking to others who had it I decided against it. I'll just wear two type of glasses for now. I don't want to mess around with my eyes. What your suffering will past but not dropping in those eye drops daily won't.. You have to do that forever now.. If you still have issues go consult another eye specialist about your eyes after the operation.

It always puzzles me when posters ask certain questions on loveshack that they should be asking Google.

I just googled "pain after lasik surgery" and a wealth of information came up. I'm posting a link to an article below that may be helpful. It basically says that your problem is most likely nerve damage that can be allieveated by treating dry eye but some patients need additional meds.

Maybe print the article off and show it to your ophthalmologist so they know it's not all in your head (no pun intended).
