Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

6.5 mm is the upper range of normal dialated pupil size. Mine prior to lasik was 7mm so I went with custom lasik that supposedly have better results for larger pupils.

I'm 6 wks post surgery and my eyes are slowly improving. Is my sight the same quality as corrected with contacts? NO WAY! If I had to do it all over again? NO WAY!

After my surgery and for 3 wks for pupils were HUGE! It took that long before they settled down. They still have dialate easier then pre surgery. Still dealing with dry eyes but that to seems to be diminishing. My biggest issue is at the end of the day driving at night. I mean WOW. Very tired eyes (of course I sit in a dry office environment looking at a tube for 10hrs - that's the worst on dry eyes) slight halos still altho improving. My evening low light vision quality is terrible. Hopefully as my eyes continue to heal that will clear up. The last big issue I have is now my eyes don't refocus as quickly when I'm reading somethiing very close up and then I look to focus on something farther away. I had some issues with that due to old age (i expect that in my 40's) but its worse after surgery.

Bottom line - My vision is slowly improving but my expectations were that my vision would be equal to my contact correct. I see the eyechart 20/20 but overall quality is still not the same. Funny after speaking to many lasik patients, noone ever tells you about the postop healing/adjusting! :confused:

If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't and wait for something better to come along.

my 2 cents.
