Enhancement Lasik
Jul 11, 2008
Can Lasik surgery enhancement make very small improvement in eyesight. My doctor recommends getting one of my eyes enhanced after Lasik. One eye (non dominant one)is 20/25 and I am OK with that but do wish to see better at a distance overall. The other dominant eye is 20/30 at best and does not see at distance well at all but does see up close pretty good.

Can enhancement on the dominant eye fine tune things enough for it to get to 20/20 even though it is already somewhat close at 20/30.

I am considering just leaving things alone but after two months just still can't quite get my brain to understand the monovision I have now. I am beginning to lean to getting goot distance vision in both eyes and just getting some reading glasses for up close vision.

How small of fine tuning can enhancement make? How long does it take to really get used to monovision? I know you can't make diagnosis but any info to help me make a decision would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, JDT

JT,
I had lasik about 8 years ago. I had -5 in one eye and -6 in the other. I currently have 20/20 vision in one eye, and 20/10 in the other.
I'm no expert. But what I can tell you, is that your eyes "get used" to the way they see, and your brain automatically makes the adjustment when you're looking at things.
I love lasik. I recommend it to everyone! If your eyes aren't that bad, and you aren't really sure, then wait until you are. If you feel like it'll make a difference, go for it. Nobody can tell you what to do with your body, if you don't feel like it's right. My eyes were terrible and I couldn't do anything without my glasses. I couldn't drive- I couldn't see anything besides light and colors. I now have better than perfect vision. The surgery was scary and it hurt, but it literally only took seconds under the laser, and less than 10 minutes total. And it wasn't bad pain. It was just wierd!
