Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


Elyse,
I had Lasik, not PRK so, I can't speak from that specific experience. But, I do know that our eyes do heal separately of one another. Basically, if you broke both of your arms, they would both heal at different rates/speeds. Your eyes were probably not the same before your surgery either. One may have been 20/40 and the other 20/60 and, believe it or not, even that can change ever so slightly day to day, hour by hour, minute by minute. Fortunately for us, that change is so minor that our brains don't comprehend it so we don't notice it. So, while it is a pain in the butt, it is pretty normal. For the first couple months after my surgery, my right eye would be pretty decent (minor blurriness) and my left eye would be blurry, dry and irritated. Even a year later, my left eye has dry eye issues throughout the day while my right eye is only dry first thing in the AM and maybe sometime throughout the day once a week. Consider the fact that they didn't shoot one laser at both of your eyes at the same time. They had to do one, then the other. That may help you realize the truth behind your eyes being 2 seperate entities. Most likely, after they did one eye, they had to recalibrate the machine in order to do the other one. So, they were two distinct surgeries.

I hope that helped some. From my experience, your is normal. But, just to be sure, go see your regular eye doctor (since you will need to in about 6 months anyway) and see what he or she has to tell you. He or she will be impartial and will be completely honest with you.

Take care and let us know how things go!
