post-operative swelling of corneas

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by Jim Hilburger, Dec 12, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    What duration of time should be expected for
    lasik post-operative swelling of the corneas?
    Does the cornea change shape from the swelling?
    Does the swelling cause high order aberration?

    Hi, Jim,

    Any distortion of the cornea will change ray-path, and
    aberrations.

    Pretty obviously. That's what swelling means.

    Sounds like a scare tactic to me.

    The duration of swelling is only temporary, and no it won't cause
    "high order aberrations". Where did you hear this from?
