Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

I am now 10 weeks post op. I had my fourth follow-up visit with my optometrist three days ago. I will have my fifth follow-up visit in two weeks, on the 29th of March.

After using Restasis for 5 weeks now, I would say that my eyes are producing more tears, but they are still somewhat dry. I am using Refresh Tears about 5-6 times a day. I use Genteal Gel Drops upon waking up in the morning and again at night before going to bed.

The best way to describe the progress with my vision is that, every few days or so, I notice tiny, tiny, tiny improvements. Because of my dry eye, my vision is still a little blurry. I see halos when driving in the darkness.


I wore gas permeable contacts from 1988 to August 2006. My vision with contacts was very good, but I could not wear these lenses 24/7. I had to take them out after about 12 hours each day. Even with gas perms, I had to use reading glasses in order to see up close. Post-lasik, I don't need reading glasses. I switched from contacts to glasses five months before the surgery in order to allow my corneas to revert to their natural shape. My vision with glasses was not as good as it was with contacts. I did not like glasses at all.
