It could be dry eye that was increased because of the LASIK surgery or it could be something else. The best thing you could do is go back to your surgeon for a follow-up or see your optometrist. READ MORE
I don't think you'll need to worry about that. The surgeon will put in drops that will numb everything and also put a device in that will hold the eyes open. No need to even think about it! READ MORE
This all depends why your eyes are red. Redness is usually caused by something else going on with your eyes. The best bet would be to see your optometrist for an examination. READ MORE
It really depends what the drop is and what it is used for. Was it prescribed by your doctor? I would only use what was recommended or prescribed by a doctor, otherwise, yes, it could be detrimental to your eyes. READ MORE
There are so many eye drops available, both over the counter and prescription. There are also a lot of different reasons for dry eyes.

The best way to find out what the appropriate drop is for your eyes, is to see an eye doctor for a full dry eye evaluation. They would do the appropriate tests to see what is going on with your eyes.

Hello! There is no way to know the answer to this for sure. The best thing you can do is continue seeing your optometrist annually or as directed and he/she will keep an "eye" on his vision. Some people "outgrow" glasses and some people get worse, but everyone is different. READ MORE

One of the best preventative measures with eye strain is to decrease the use or at least look up from the computer occasionally. A good rule of thumb is: 20-20-20 (every 20 minutes, look up from the computer for 20 seconds and look at a distance of 20 feet - out a window or down the hallway). The other thing you should do is visit your optometrist for an examination to see if your prescription has changed. READ MORE
Everyone should be seen yearly to check for any progression of eye diseases or deterioration of vision. READ MORE

Your mother should speak to her cataract surgeon about any medications that she's taking and ask about contraindications. READ MORE
Contact lenses should not hurt your eyes. There may be something wrong with your eyes that needs to be addressed by an optometrist or you may need to be fit into another brand or size of contact lens. READ MORE
It all depends on what the drop is and what it is for. Have you seen an optometrist about the problem? They would tell you for sure if you should be using a drop or if there is another underlying problem with your eyes. READ MORE
In most cases, the eyes just naturally change over time. Just as your muscles and joints and the rest of your body changes with time and age, the eyes do the same. If you are going in for annual eye exams with an optometrist, they are also checking to make sure that no eye diseases are popping up over time. If there was an underlying problem or something abnormal, your doctor would let you know. Please try not to worry, it is normal for the eyes to change, but please continue seeing your doctor every year to stay on top of any health problems that could arise. READ MORE
