• Can recovery after LASIK be compromised if I sometimes squint and twitch my eyelids?


    Question:

    I am considering having LASIK done in the near future. However, I am concerned about my recovery because I sometimes squint and twitch my eyelids. I am worried that this might aggravate my eye during the post-surgical recovery, leading to a complication. Do I have a reason to be concerned?


    Answer:

    There is no reason to be concerned. Squinting or twitching your eyelids will have no effect on the result.
