Dont worry - i'm also in same boat. Did on Feb 29th and the next saturday morning after surgery i was 20/25 very clear but now its hazing out a little after 4 days.

I also had same feelings as some foreign particle or eyelash is on my left eye on 2nd day i.e Sunday Morning. I called up the "emergency no" of the Lasik clinic at 9 AM on Sunday and told him something foreign is stuck on my left eye - he bet that's its not something - its dry eye. I was using "Refresh Plus" every 1 hr - he told me to use 30 minutes and even as frequent as 15 minutes and down to 10 minutes !!!!

He told me to do that and if the foreign particle is still there after few hours call him again for emergency check up - But the issue was gone by 3 PM.

Use "Refresh Plus " - with "No Preservative". They have a big pack with
10 X 5 = 50 pouches inside. You can use 1 Pouch for 2-3 times , they are good for 2 hrs after opening.

Will write later - have to go for drops. Eyes are burning again

[QUOTE=james76n;2237363]Thanks for your replies. It's a little more comforting knowing that some other people have gone through something similar. You guys must have been really scared as well. I know I was freaked out when I woke up one morning and my vision was blurry.

My eyes didn’t feel dry after the surgery and the person that examined my eyes told me some people don’t experience dry eye and may not need to use drops. I thought I was one of the lucky ones and neglected to use drops. It makes me feel like an idiot that I didn’t know I had dry eye and may have caused my own vision problems.

It's been about 4 days since my vision has changed and about 13 days post op. I've been putting drops in every hour or so for the last 2 days, but I have not seen any improvement in my eye. What's the general period that I may have to wait? Every morning I wake up, hoping for that crisp vision I had a few days after the surgery, but to no avail. I have also noticed that I see shadows with my left eye now…hopefully it will get better. I'm still having doubts that it's dry eye that caused this vision change...

My eyes still don't feel that dry, but I've been using drops. Drops seem to make my eyes more dry after the fact.

Do you guys have any recommendations on what drops to use or if the overnight ointment will help and is good for use after the surgery? Let me know if you have any other recommendations or stories.[/QUOTE]
