Very discouraging
May 5, 2015
I had lasik on March 6th so about 3 months ago. I enjoyed 20/20 vision in my right eye and 20/25 in my left for 6 weeks. One day I noticed light sensitivity when I was inside in a converance. Didn't think that much about it until that evening my eyes became extremely light sensitive, to the point I had to wear sunglasses while watching television. I went to see my eye doctor the following day and was told I had an inflammation in both of my eyes. I was put on FML drops for a week and told to come back for a check up. I noticed that my vision was starting to get blurry about mid week and by the time I saw the doctor again my vision had deteriorated to 20/60 in my right and 20/50 in my left eye, I was terrified. She sent me back to the laser clinic for further investigation as she wasn't certain why the drops didn't work. The doctor there checked my vision and it was 20/30 and 20/40 but still blurry and definitely inflamed. I was now put on pred forte every 2 hours for 3 days and then to 4x per day. Sunday I was definitely losing more distance vision so I called my eye doctor Monday and she booked me to see her today.I was feeling maybe I was slightly clearer but tested 20/40 and 20/50. She told me my corneas are still inflamed but better than when she saw me last week. She is hoping I am on the road to clearing up this inflammation but will need to monitor. I have another appointment at the laser clinic tomorrow so I guess I will see how it goes. I am extremely concerned that I have a problem that may alter my results so it is causing me a lot of anxiety.

Has anyone else had an experience with an inflammation after having a very successful first 6 weeks. When the surgeon checked me last week, he said everything looked good with the flap and was healing as it should outside of the inflammation. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
