An article was recently published showing that acupuncture combined with eye drops had better results (77%) in relieving dry eyes than eye drops alone (54%).

This would be especially interesting for people having undergone LASIK eye surgery with lamellar cut.

Unlike the LASIK SMILE technology where no lamellar cut is performed, the lamellar cut of the cornea creates a disconnection between the part that is cut and the rest of the eye. The affected part of the cornea does not reconnect properly and insufficient lacrimation results.

It would therefore make sense for someone who recently had the operation to see an acupuncturist in order to improve lacrimation levels and reduce dry eye syndrome.

Here is a link to the original article:
