Nope. Not me. But I didn't fly to Vancouver for my treatment, and arrived a few days in advance. Prior-day air travel can be really drying.
I don't remember that occurring, but Dr. Lin did use what appeared to be a "Q-tip" or something to clean that out the next day. There's that BSS solution you can use as well. But I think the key is to keep your hands and unsterile objects away from the eyes. And of course, keep tap water away. If I had any residue, I think I just left it alone.Also, I noticed some residue builds up near the inside corner of the eyes, probably due to the eye drops. How do you clean them without getting tap water into your eyes?
Drops-wise, you can take the lubricating drops as often as you want, and its not the end of the world if you miss an application or two (but you should try not to, since the drops greatly contribute to the comfort of the bandage contact lens!). But you need to make sure you get the required number of steroid (ie: FML) drops in the eyes daily, as well as the antibiotics.
BTW, 20/20 is amazing post-procedure. And I believe you're seen by an optometrist (Ashley, kind of with a Euro accent??) after the surgery, not a technician for the follow-up visual acuity test. Pretty utterly amazing isn't it though that, if not for having taken Ativan, that you'd be legal to drive yourself home without glasses, eh?
