What are the red spots on the white of the eye after LASIK?

Dr. Sally Thompson of LasikPlus Salt Lake City explains what the red spots on the white part of the eye following LASIK are.

“Hi, I am Dr. Sally Thompson, the surgeon at LasikPlus in Salt Lake City. I get asked a lot – ‘what are the red spots on the white parts of my eyes after I’ve had LASIK?’They are simply bruises; little-broken blood vessels and they don’t hurt.What causes them is we hold your eye nice and still with a suction ring while we are doing the first part of LASIK, which is using the IntraLase in order to create the LASIK flap.Don’t worry! They go away in about three weeks.”
