Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

I had Intralase LASIK 10 days ago. I had a heck of a time for about 4 days. I wore RGPs for 20+ years and was so scared of dry eye that I literally flooded my eyes after my surgery. I was so upset about the blurry vision but didn't realize that constant drops were causing the blurriness. I am seeing better than 20/20 now. Before LASIK, my prescription was -7 with +3.25 astigmatism, both considered very high. I use drops every hour or two now.

My biggest advice to you is following the doctor's instructions. And, realize that Intralase does cause 2-3 hours of burning when the numbing drops wear off. But, take the meds they give you, and it will end!

Whether you do it or not is up to you. Are the risks of drops from now on and dry eyes worth it to you? To me, it was worth the risk, and 10 days out, I'm happy I did it.
