    There are many side effects after the lasik eye surgery, including the swelling corneal. It is so bad. If you treat it carefully with medicine, like the eye drops with anti-inflammation, you could release the swelling corneal for about a week. In addition, you could just use the clean cloth and hot water to make your eyes feel comfortable. You should keep on doing this.

    Well, generally speaking, it will take about one week for the swelling eye to recover. And after the surgery, your eyes can be infected easily, and it can lead to swelling eyes. To treat it, you can try some strawberry jam. Generally speaking, strawberry mixed with sterile water may also be used as a monthly enema. In that way, it can help with fluid retention as well as increasing colon health. Also, cool used tea bags and cool cucumber slices can reduce circulation, and they can be effective too. So you can just have a try.
