Rarely, the laser: can cause inflammation in the eye and cause light sensitivity and eye pain. It is best to check back with your eye doctor that performed the laser and they can check to see if there is any inflammation that needs to be treated.

Pain post laser: the pain may be due to inflammation in the eye. You need to see your ophthalmologist immediately.
