Did I read this right? A professor in Austrailia has observed proteins in the lipid layer which play a role in tear break-up time?

Hope this helps us one day.

Mucins are slimy proteins produced by goblet cells. When patients have LASIK, the speculum and suction ring damage goblet cells that prodoce this needed protein component of the normal tear film.

The eye needs these slimy proteins to produce a stable tear film and protect the ocular surface.

Corneal nerves are also cut and burned during the LASIK procedure. Normal density and orientation of corneal nerves is never restored after LASIK.

The balance between tear breakup, blink rate and tear production may never be normal again after LASIK.

To add insult to injury, literally, the normal, smooth ocular surface is replaced with an irregular and lumpy post-surgical surface that is less likely to hold a proper tear film.

Surface inflammation (ocular surface disease) can result.

Cutting and burning corneal nerves, damaging goblet cells and destroying the smooth outer shape of the cornea produce a cascade of damage - and the only treatments available today are symptomatic and ineffective.

Medical doctors have no legal or moral right to perform a procedure on healthy eyes which is known to universally cause permanent harm.

LASIK eye surgery should be banned!
