?The possibility of preventing symptoms from developing, by performing blink exercises routinely and prior to the onset of symptoms can usefully be explained to patients,? Dr. McMonnies advised. ?The goal for patients should be to perform blink exercises frequently enough that blink completeness habits are generalized across all conditions of spontaneous blinking.?

This article is sickening. So now you're supposed to learn a new way to blink after LASIK so your corneas don't dry out from reduced tear production? Are they going to put that in an informed consent prior to LASIK? Good grief.

Dr. Christine Lee, a LASIK surgeon who practices in Durham North Carolina at the "Eye Institute of North Carolina" (it's an office in a strip mall :wink: ) diagnosed me with post-LASIK keratoconjuctivitis sicca (dry eye) and advised me to "blink more" as well.

This is ineffective advice that is given to patients who are damaged by corneal refractive surgery far too often.

Blinking is a reflex, like breathing. You can't possibly be conscious of your blinking all of the time and function normally in life.

Corneal refractive surgery likely permanly disrupts the feedback mechanisms linking blink rate and tear production. The root cause of this 'disconnect' is the nerve damge caused by the corneal refractive surgeons themselves. You can't just tell a patient to blink more to compensate for this nerve damage.

Blink more??? That is unbelievably, mind-blowingly STUPID advice offered by 'doctors' who have no good fix for the chronic medical problems that they create when they perform elective medically unnecessary surgeries on previously healthy eyes.

Did you take a Hippocratic Oath, Dr. Christine Lee?

This is the kind of professional advice for which they are very highly paid. :roll:
