Eye pigment: can you post a photo? it would be most helpful? Most likely not a concern. Some folks get some pigment deposit on the white of the eye. Rarely is this a concern, but as with issues like this, seeing it for the provider is very important to help make a correct diagnosis and inform you correctly.

What are some complications of laser eye surgery?

Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
Very Few: While laser eye surgery (lasik, prk) is very safe, there can rarley be complications that may affect vision. Most commonly, the eye may not achieve perfect vision, and an enhancement may be needed later. Dry eyes can occur and last for several months, and small abrasions may be present for a few days. More rarely, surface skin can sometimes grow under the flap, causing blurred vision.

Possible: Thyroid disease can cause eye problem but many other conditions can also cause this: allergy, sinus infection, tumor...See your doctor to have your thyroid level checked. If it's normal, then the thyroid is not causing the eye problem. Good luck.
