Hi, I am a patient who recently got Lasik surgery (4 days ago). I am also prescribed retin-A to control skin blemishes and acne, which I have been using for one year. I forgot about this when I got the surgery but was made aware that this could be an issue with my recent Lasik. Is it safe to go back on Retin-a? If not, at what point is it safe to return to the product. There seems to be almost no online info about this! Thanks.
Is Retin-a After Lasik Okay?
