This presentation discusses the most common causes of chronic pain after corneal refractive surgery (PRK and LASIK). Recurrent corneal erosions are more common after PRK than LASIK and cause classic symptoms. Dry eye symptoms can occur after both PRK and LASIK and may actually represent a form a neuropathic pain rather than a truly dry ocular surface.
