Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most common refractive surgical procedure. The efficiency rate is high, with more than 90% of patients achieving 20/25 or better corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) without glasses. The procedure is documented to be safe, but several post-LASIK complications may occur; dry-eye syndrome is the most frequent. Although 95% of patients may experience dry-eye symptoms immediately after LASIK, approximately 20% develop chronic dry-eye symptoms that persist beyond 6 months.Despite the identification of several risk factors for post-LASIK dry eye and attempts to mitigate some of them, post-LASIK dry eye continues to be a major challenge of LASIK.We present the case of a 43-year-old woman with severe dry eye after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) that was successfully treated with vectored thermal pulsation therapy (Lipiflow).
