I had lasik 2 years ago, my vision is great now!
I suffered from dry eye before that, and have been on restasis for 2 years now. I am wanting a brow lift. Is this safe for lasik patients, and can it cause dry eye to reoccur?
If the brow lift is extensive, it's possible it could make your eyes open more to some degree. I would be more concerned about an aggressive upper blepharoplasty - that can sometimes worsen dry eyes. My best advice is to try to determine just how much the brow lift will open the eyes. If quite a bit, then be very careful. Just be cautious. Consider talking case over with oculoplastic surgeon who also does brow lifts.
