Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Ok this is about 1 year since my lasik give or take a few days...a few symptoms i have lately are...

-sore eye muscles (when I look hard left or right eye muscles are sore like if you exercise and they are sore the next day, but not as severe)

-facial pressure/headaches (under my eyes mostly)

-dry eyes in the morning (think this is due to winter and the heater at night?)

So I go to my surgeron and he says I have dry eye in some spots and to try thera tears nutrition.

I am on the computer mon-fri 9-6 every day, with minor breaks here and there...he said its probably due to a lot of eye strain. He prescribed me a .5+ reading glass for the computer. Said it would relieve some eye tension, what do u think of that?

I am 20/20 left eye and 20/15 right eye. I still sometimes think my eyes are just still not used to seeing so perfect. I used to be -3.75 and -3.5 nearly my whole life, and this change is maybe still taking effect on my eye muscles?

Any input on people with 1 year+ after stories? These effects mostly hurt my left ey, and maybe because its just slightly less strong, and they will not even think to redo the eye if its 20/20 just so i can 20/15 in both eyes...I've been trying eye exercises where u look up,side,down like an imaginary clock to see if it helps strengthen my eye muscles maybe...

Any input would be awesome!

Sure being on the computer daily so much doesnt help. My focal point went from like 1 foot to nearly infinite..when I look out into the distance, the fartherest tree I look at is still clear (i cant count the leaves, but i still can see it without it being blurry)

Hey jeriz7 the dizzy part i dont really get, but kinda know what you mean. It was weird, i used to play video games a lot when i was like 12-18yrs old, and kinda quit playing them due to interest. My friend got that xbox 360 and my eyes felt almost cross eyed after i left from playing it for a few hours. but after i drove home they felt better and strong again lol.

the closeup thing i might know...sometimes i feel like my right eye is sharper and the left is sharp too but closer viewing...usually notice it when its dry maybe.

i think a lot has to do with the weather and winter here because at night they get dry even with ointment and as the day goes on it gets clearer...

my doc said to get .5+ computer glasses, so i went in and they let me try some lenses off the machine and hold em in front of my eyes and it wasnt worth the $100 to me...but the headaches i get suck...i just try to sit farther away and take breaks more often.

i have a good week, then a bad week...its weird. a lot is with sinus pressure too i think...i have a lot at night and it makes the headaches worse. so i take some headache pills and it helps...the eye exercises seem to help too! i close my eyes and do the fake clock from 1-2-3-4 and look as far as i can in each direction, then center. 1-center 2-center, etc. and put on this heated eye/sinus mask my mom got me...i hope my body will adjust to them and i started using eye drops more because i think they are drier than i thought...
