Eye redness post CXL 1 month

Postby basa » Mon 04 Mar 2013 6:51 am

Am from Singapore and had CXL (epi taken off)for my both eyes 30 days back. Doctors advised to reduce the FML (Fluorometholone) drops in 4th week. when i stopped my right eye got red and had medium pain.
On visiting doctor the next day, i had been told that the eyes are healing perfect and asked to continue the FML for another 4 weeks. In 2 days the right eye is back to normal and got the same in left eye. Doctors advised to continue the FML for left eye also.

Any one please tell me is this common on healing process and anything to worry.

Hello Basa and welcome to the forum.

You may be puzzled to find that your post has been moved from Help and Advice (a place seldom visited by regular forum users) to the General Discussion Forum.

I am the guilty party; I moved your post so that it would be noticed by more people. I do not, myself, have any experience of CXL, but I am pretty sure that there will be somebody along in a moment who can answer your question.

Every good wish

Andrew
