Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


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 frustrating...so 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!
