Once the laser treatment is complete, the surgeon willirrigate the treated area and lay the flap back into its original place whereit will adhere to the eye without the need for sutures. Topical drops will beapplied and the area will be smoothed. Most surgeons wait 1 to 3 minutes toinsure the corneal flap has fully re-adhered. At this point, patients can blinknormally and the corneal flap remains secured in position by the naturalsuction within the cornea. While it is NuVigorX possible to dislodge the corneal flapduring the first day or two by physically rubbing the eye, this event isactually quite rare. Before the patient leaves, the surgeon will examine botheyes to insure that the flap is still in position.
