Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Hi everyone, I had Lasik just about two and a half months ago and I just wanted to let everyone know about my progress, since there are a lot of negative posts and ney-sayers out there.
I wanted to have Lasik so that I could go about my normal day to day activities without the use of glasses or contacts. My last post op visit was about a month ago and I had 20/20 vision. I am able to see everything perfectly. I can watch TV, drive a car, cook dinner, go to work, etc. without glasses or contacts, and it is a dream come true!!! I could never do any of these things before unless I had glasses or contacts.
I had some dry eye issues almost immediately following the surgery, especially in my left eye. My doctor prescribed me Restasis about two weeks after the surgery and I have been taking it twice a day ever since, as well as using preservative free eye drops.
My dry eye bothers me less and less as time goes on. If I am really busy with something and am not thinking about my eyes, they don't bother me at all. I have days where I only use the preservative free drops two or three times the whole day. Some days my eyes will bother me a little right from the get go and they will keep bothering me until I stop thinking about them and preoccupy myself with something so that I don't have time to think about it...weird huh? But overall, my eyes are comfortable more than they are uncomfortable.
Overall, so far, I am very satisfied with my results. People DO have good experiences with LASIk. I know there are some people who have had very bad experiences, and I realize there are risks, but I just wanted to say that personally, I am very pleased with my vision. I know they say it takes 6 months for your vision to stabalize so I am just hoping that my vision doesn't start to decline. I would hate to have to wear contacts again! If anyone out there is debating the procedure, please understand that it can work wonders for most people.
I have another post op visit in about a month, hopefully everything will check out ok! I would love to get off the Restasis soon, and hopefully eye drops all together!
