Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Just had my 4 month exam. I tested at 20/20. The line wasn't very sharp, but I could read all the letters. One thing that I am continuing to do is take vitamins, get plenty of rest, not strain my eyes, etc. I have the "miracle eye course method" and used it before the surgery, that course is great because when I was wearing contacts, I went from a -4.75 to a -3.50 in about 8 months. The doctor said it was just a fluke, however I knew in my heat that nothing they ever did mad my vision better. I tell you rhis becuase after your vision stabelizes, I suggest trying many of the exercies in the course. What the couse does it equip you with the skills necessary to maintain good vision, such as, never focus close up more than 30 - 45 min, take breaks and focus on distant objects, etc, Now that I have 20/20. I know there is a lot I can do to stack the odds in my favor that I can keep it as long as possible. So, if an enhancement is necessary, then do it, I'm thankful that I didn't do a regular lasik, because I may not have had enough flap left to work with, but since you and I had epilasik, all the material is still in tact, so retreatment is very viable ""that's great", 2nd, do everything in your power to learn what helps maintain good vision and work these things into your daily routines, 3rd always visualize yourself seeing perfectly. My view is that its takes a multipoint approach to maintain good vision. Knowing what I know now, its easy to say don't worry, but I'll puch myself in the nose for saying that. It is far better knowing that if a retreat is needed ,all the tissue is there to do it still in tact. I'd be more worried if I had double vision or some of the complications associtaed with traditional lasik. Everyone that asks me about it, I recommend epilasik, I tell to schedule it for a vacation period, have the surgery, and sit on your ***-etts for a while, so, blah, blah, blah,...

Hello weonyc,

I had epi-lasik surgery about a month ago. I had it done in Singapore and I have now returned to Paris where I am working. While my right eye is recovering quite nicely, the vision on my left eye is still quite hazy.

I was worried and I therefore called my doctor in Singapore (four phone calls to get through a firewall of nurses). He strongly believes it is nothing to worry about and that the haze (double vision, more prominent with daylight) will slowly go away ... ...

Well it is very slow and it is stressing me out..... I am worry if the hazy vision is permanent. Fortunately I can function quite well given that my right eye is doing quite well... It would have been a real nightmare if both of my eyes were hazy ... gosh... it is like throwing dice!

I would love to hear about your experiences (and how you have recovered) given that you have your operation done in September. And I love to hear from any others here in the board that might have similar experiences...

Very worried and stressed,


[QUOTE=weonyc;2566628]I had my epi-lasik almost four weeks ago. My vision is slowly getting better...but it is very I understand everyone else's frustration. My doctor told me that it will take a few months for the clarity to improve...he said I can see very close to 20/20...but I find that hard to believe! I started driving after about one week...but still don't feel comfortable to drive at night any great distance. I do have some 'benchmarks' I use to gauge how well I'm doing, and I do see some subtle improvements. I use Pred Forte 4x per day...and will at least until my next appt in early Nov. This really doesn't compare with any of my friends who had the traditional LASIK, whose vision was near perferct in a very short period of time!!! Those contact lenses don't look so bad after all![/QUOTE]
Hey shal70,

apparently you and I had Epi-Lasik surgery about the same date (mine is on 20/03/2007). Let use this board to share our experiences if it is OK with you.

My left eye is giving my double vision and is completely hazy when I step out in the daylight. The doctor says it will improve but it has been a couple of weeks and the vision is still hazy.

Good thing I do not have to drive here in Paris!


[QUOTE=shal70;2899404]yes i am 15 days out from getting surgery and can not believe I cant not see!!! 2-3 days of recovery time is just not right to tell someone!!!! I felt confident with my doctor but am now wondering what is going on. I am so blurry!!!![/QUOTE]
Dear all,

I had my epi lasik on the 21st of June.
During the first week when I was wearing the contact lenses
I was able to see fine with both eyes. My left eye was a bit better.
After the removal of the lenses I was seeing bad with both eyes.
The following day my right eye started seeing nicely and imporiving every day.
My left eye is still very misty and I have double vision.
I am very very worried. The diffrence in my eyes is very big and I
have headache all the time.

Now almost 3 weeks after the operation and 2 weeks after the lenses removal my left eye doesnt have any improval.

Please share with me your thoughts.
