Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


I am glad that the pain is gone. There were a couple of times when the thing in my eye actually were eyelashes and, since I have pets, I had actually managed one time, to get a cat hair or some piece of fur in my eye. I don't have any idea how. It may have blown up into my face while walking outside or something. Who knows but, most of the other times when it felt like something was in my eye, it was all just the normal healing of my corneas.

As for the enhancement...I don't know for sure how that works but, I think, after 3 months of healing, your doc may be able to do it. And, I think, while the flap is safely in place at that time, it can just be lifted to do the enhancement. Don't take my word for that because I am really not sure how it works. It just seems to me that I remember reading somewhere that it can be done that way because it takes some time for the cornea to actually fully seal itself even though it is hard to be dislodged after a month or so of healing. Ask your doc for sure. It can't hurt to let him know of your future plans. The more informed he is, the better he will be at helping you be better informed yourself.

Keep in touch.
I don't like to drive either and tend to stay within a 2 mile radius. Scary. I can see the computer screen well, but the further past that, the fuzzier it is and I just don't want to risk hitting something in the road, ya know? Refraction is when they put that metal mask on your face in front of your eyes and say, "One or two" and you pick which is better. As far as the chart goes, none of it is very clear. They tell me to blink and guess. My comment is, 'But that's not vision, that's guessing.' Don't want to trust 'guessing' on 95, ya know?! Aug 11 will be 3 months for you then. Make sure that your refraction has not changed. This means, before they do the enhancement, make sure your refraction is the same twice in a row. If not, your eyes could still be healing/changing and 3 months may be too soon for a touch up. Some people wait 6 to 9 months just to be sure. This is best decided between you and your surgeon, just don't feel like you have to rush anything. OK? Are you still afraid to touch your eyes or did you get over that pretty quickly? I also understand how you feel between light and dark. I don't know if this is because we are blurry and it just seems worse when it's darker or if it's something from the surgery. You should ask your surgeon about this when you next meet, just to be sure. Tell them EVERYTHING that is bothering you, ghosting, double vision, dim vision, anything. It's important for them to know. Did you have custom lasik? I didn't, but I think they can give you an enhancement with it. Doesn't hurt to ask. ;)
