Wearing Sunglasses After LASIK

After LASIK surgery, most patients find that their eyes are more sensitive to light than before. If you experience any light sensitivity after your LASIK surgery buy a good pair of dark sunglasses that offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.

Corneal haze (a hazy or foggy view) is a possible side effect of LASIK and it is believed that exposure to UV light is the main reason, so if you’re debating whether you should wear sunglasses after LASIK, debate no more; and it doesn’t make a difference whether it’s summer or winter either, light can affect your eyes regardless of the season.

Bottom line….after LASIK surgery plan on investing in some good quality sunglasses and enjoy your new view of the world!
