well some of you have been chattin w/ me...and a quick overview is...

I had lasik about 1 year and a few weeks ago...left eye gives me more problems, right seems ok...My lasik eye doc just kept saying I was ok...put in more drops basically...

My original eye doc before my surgery did the eye test and i read 20/20 left and 20/10 right! I read the 20/10 with out straining. haha. I wish the left was sharper though!

He said my eyes were very dry and I had even slept with ointment before i went to bed and came in this morning at 11:15...

I brought in all my eye products I use and he thinks I am having problems from preservatives from the drops. I use refresh liquigel/tears. He gave me some Thera Tears Luquid Gel capsules. He said to stick to the tubes and not to use anything in bottles. (I had the tubes before but the bottles are so much easier!

[B]I asked him on a scale of 1-10 how dry my eyes were, with 10 being the worst, and he said probably about a 7[/B]. He also said that being that dry would definately cause my headaches and vision problems because I have a lot of dry spots.

He wants to see me back in 2 weeks, and if that dont work, he wants me to try that rostasis stuff, but said its $100 for a month supply if my insurance dont cover it! So hopefully just using the thera tears liquid gel tubes will be ok.

Hopefully it works ok for me! He also said he wouldnt use the eye ointment either...

I will see how it goes. suprisingly after that visit and putting a few drops in of the tube drops I feel a little better already haha. a lot of it is mental too and knowing this should help, I kinda feel better already hahah. I will keep you guys updated if u want...

Thanks for reading ;)
My eye doctor said to use the drops for 2 weeks, and to input drops every 2 hours and come back and see him after those 2 weeks to check how my eyes are doing. I guess it makes sense if your putting in drops 5-10 times a day with perservatives in them, that maybe it is what is irritating my eyes...? It seems to, because since i've been doing the Thera Tears perservative free tubes my eyes feel much more clear and a lot less of headaches! Let you know what he says in 2 weeks!

I hope this isnt a lifetime thing I have to put in drops every 2 hours lol...he said most lasik eyes heal after 6 months or so from dryness, and he wants to make sure we get my eyes moisturized properly like they should be.
