What are warning signs that something is not right ?

An easy acronym to remember about warning signs after any eye surgery is rsvp:

R- Redness
S- Sensitivity to light
V- Vision reduction
P- Pain

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should inform your surgeon. Keep in mind that all these symptoms are normal and to be expected in the first few days after lasek (and prk – epilasik)
