Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


It has been 8 days since I had Customs Intralase on 4/26 on both eyes to correct my high myopia. Far vision on both eyes have been blurry since then, with no improvements. My estimation of my current vision is 20/60. I have no side effects such as glare, starburst or halo but have double/triple vision. Couple with blurry vision, this made night driving quite difficult. I have read in this board that it may take up to 6 whole months for the cornea to heal completely and achieve its intended clarity, so I will have to hang on and pray that it will improve over time. So, in many ways, I am in the same boat as many of you here in this board.

Or...you could go for an enhancement in approximately 3-6 months. Your story sounds familiar. My eyes didn't improve much from 1 - 3 months. One of the doctors told me that as a general rule, what you see at 1 month, is what you see at 3 months. There are occasionally exceptions though.
I'm still shaking my head after my lasik on April 30th. I am so clear! I think that the "it takes time for the cornea to heal" in my case wasn't true. I just wasn't corrected enough. I don't think that there was a mistake..maybe my eyes just needed a boost as they might not have responded as much as the doctor thought. I don't know. I just know that the second I sat up, I could tell that it had worked well. Everything was clear right away. I think those who are seeing blurry still as I was probably just need an enhancement down the road. Hopefully, everyone here will have good results eventually as I have. It was a very long, frustrating, depressing 3 months, but it's finally over. What an ordeal :dizzy:
