Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

I was seeing 20/20 the day after my surgery and because I accidentally poked my right eye 2 days after surgery with the tip of my eye drop vial, I went in to make sure I didn't do any damage and found out I was seeing 20/15. I had LadarVision 4000 or something like that. I don't think it was the custom lasik but, it was on a machine that tracks your eyes movements up to 4000 beats per second. If I remember correctly, my doc couldn't do custom on me because of my high astigmatism.

The advice you gave Scion was good about adding moisture around your environment. I mentioned to someone on this board that, during the winter months after my surgery, my husband had bought a couple of humidifiers which seemed to help me enormously. I was using the flax seed oil capsules for a while too but, got out of the habit. I don't know if it was wishful thinking or if they were really helping but, I think they were and, if I can ever remember, I might try taking them again.
I am 4 days shy of 7 months post opp and the dryness is annoying but, I know that there have been other people who have had the dryness cause problems for a while. I think I read somewhere that some people may take as much as 1 year to 18 months to fully heal and have everything back to normal including the residual dryness. So, I'm not concerned yet.
I'm glad to hear the scraping seems to have helped. Just keep in mind that that will probably extend your healing by a little longer. As for the flap, I am mostly over my fear. But, still more careful than ever before.
Take it easy!
