Botulinum Toxin (Botox or Dysport) following Lasik

In many individuals who undergo Lasik, there is a complaint of dry eyes. IF botox is agressively injected around the eyes, this could increase the sensation of dry eyes and is not necessarily a contra-indication but may necessitate the use of ocular lubricants.

Botox and juvederm after lasix

you must check with your ophthalmologist when injections can be done around the eye area for botox and juvederm as they are the surgeon who did the lasix and only they would know if some swelling from the injections could interfere with your healing.

It is probably safe to have fillers (juvederm) after LASIK surgery, however, you have to be more careful with Botox, especially if you had recent LASIKS.

I would strongly encourage you to touch base with the refractive surgeon or surgery counselor if it has been less than two weeks from surgery.  Generally, I recommend waiting about two or three weeks after refractive surgery before having these type of services.  By this time, thing will have settled from the Lasik, although you may still be experiencing some dry eye from the refractive surgery.
