Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


I had lasik surgery on one eye four days ago. So far I haven't been able to see far nor close. My prescription was -2.25 before the surgery and I also had some astigmatism. My distance vision is somewhat better than it was before the surgery but still very blurry. For example watching tv is difficult. I tried on my old eyeglasses but they make things even blurrier. My up-close vision is also very bad. For example I can't read a newspaper. I tried on my mum's reading glasses and they make things clearer. I'm 27 years old and my up-close vision was perfect before the surgery.

In my 1st day check up the flap was okay but there was some swelling. I'll have a second check up tomorrow. I'm putting on all the eye drops. My eye doesn't feel dry but I still use the moiturising drops every hour.

I'm wondering if all of this is normal. I've read many stories where people have fluctuating vision or regressing vision. Mine hasn't been clear at all after the surgery.

Who had you considered to do your surgery and who actually did your surgery? Would you say they were accurate in addression risks?

just for the record, blurry vision is extremely normal post-op. i had blurry vision in my left eye for about three months after lasik. they kept telling me it was because my eyes were dry, i didn't really believe them at first, because they didn't feel dry, and i was using drops every day. i was really depressed and really thought i was going to be one of those "re-do" patients. but after i started using the drops even more than i already was, my vision improved drastically and today i see 20/12.5 in both eyes. i'd recommend it to anyone!

use way more artificial tears than you think is necessary, give your eyes plenty of rest and allow your eyes to heal!

also, i have always had really dry eyes, and of course lasik made them worse, but i just use the generic brand of artificial tears that walmart and target sell and they've always worked great for me (they're way cheaper than those restasis drops and they work just as well, or better!).

Hi everyone! Stopped by to update my situation. It's been about 7 months since I had the lasik done. In the beginning I had problems with blurriness which lasted for about 2-3 months after the surgery. Now I have 20/20 vision in both eyes. I have slight astigmatism in both eyes, the other eye is a bit myopic and the other one hyperopic. My eyes are still dryer than they used to be and I use moisturising drops in the mornings and in the evenings. Quite often I get a feeling that there's something in my eye but it usually clears when I put on some eyedrops. My night-time vision is not as good as it used to be: I see halos and starbursts and need good lights when I read.

Having said all that, I'm still happy with my vision. It's not perfect but good enough for me. I'd rather have this vision without glasses than a better one with glasses.
