    Had lasik done on both eyes close to,2 years ago. Last few days have had momentary stabbing pain in my right eye. Just once or twice a day. Will be see an eye doc tomorrow. Has anyone, experienced this? Wondering what the cause could be?

    Phil. I did not have lasik but experienced the same stabbing pain. Adn there was a time I rubbed my eyes the way normal folks do in the AM or at other times during the day. But I decided to stop that and did and ended up with the stabbing pain. Went to the Ophtho guy and he said I had "dry-eye". And why did I have dry eye? Because when you rub your eye you clear the natural build up of eye debris away form the the tear duct. Go get a fake tears and give that a whirl.

    I take 1000mg of flax seed oil every day, if I don't I get dry eye. HMB
