Just had my 2 week follow up, still double and triple vision. Now my Dr. tells me I have retinal swelling which is causing the poor vision, and he has no idea how long it will take to heal. He said the retina does heal very slowly though. He gave me Xibrom drops to help reduce the swelling.

Has anyone heard of LASIK causing retinal swelling? It doesn't make sense to me, they are 2 completely different parts of the eye. I'm very concerned now that I may never see normal again. Glasses can't even correct what I am seeing.
OK, that would make sense. I guess now I'm wondering how long it could take for the retina swelling to go down. My surgeon didn't sound very optimistic about it happening any time soon. I also assume this swelling is what is causing the double and triple vision?

He is very confident that the actual procedure is done perectly.

Thanks for your reply.
