Corneal Wound Healing after LASIK Surgery

Daniel G. Dawson, MD ? Hans E. Grossniklaus, MD ? Henry F. Edelhauser, PhD

In most cases, LASIK is immediately followed by loss of corneal sensation over the flap and gradual disappearance of most of the corneal nerves in the flap over the first 2 days after surgery. Significant re-growth of the cut nerves starts between 1 and 3 months after the procedure with corneal sensation typically recovering to normal levels only by 6 to 12 months postoperatively. However, the total length, morphology, and sensation of the re-grown corneal nerve fibers never completely return to normal preoperative levels and only reaches maximum levels by 1 to 2 years after LASIK.
