Patient With Pain After ReLex FLEX Surgery

January 12, 2012

I had a ReLEx FLEX patient. Yesterday, after surgery, she felt severe ocular pain. I injected analgesics IM and put contact lens on both eyes. Today, she feels pain also. On slit lamp examination, her cornea shows slight haziness at lenticule removed site. I wonder what makes her pain, and how can I treat her? Thank you.

    the cornea is exquisitely sensitive, in some patients more than others. did the surgeon say its ok to put a contact lens on? ask if its ok to add a nsaid like acular/xibrom- they are very effective for pain.
