All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



I was told I have “cells under my flap”, should I be concerned ?

It is not uncommon to have some cells infiltrate themselves under the lasik flap especially after a repeat laser procedure. In the majority of cases, i just observe them and they go away on their own. About a couple of times a year, i do lift somebpdy’s lasik flap to clean under. This is not a significant complication if managed appropriately.
