This article was a bit complex for me. I had to look up certain words and terms.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1741 ... stractplus

Um, did I read right? There are bio-chemical forces at work here.

I find this research hopeful and promising. Even though... it's only a theory.

What do you think about this article?
Or is it old news?[/b]

Clinically, this approach may explain examples of dry eye syndrome occurring after ocular surgery, contact lens wear, chronic allergy or systemic or topical drugs, and the long-lasting effect even though all causal factors have been removed or have disappeared.


Any thoughts? Anyone, anyone?

Clearly there is a lot going on with surgically-induced dry eye, and since so much of the pathobiology of post-LASIK dry eye is poorly understood, it would be smart for surgeons to stop performing LASIK until they developed even a marginally effective treatment for this common and all too often permanent and debilitating complication of LASIK.

We're still here...
