Dollbaby is right, give it time. Your eyes will go back and forth and fluctuate a lot while you're healing. Mine changed almost by the hour it seemed like. Mine kept changing for a couple of months post op. I also had very dry eye. mine lasted about 6 months. I was on restasis and had to use rewetting drops all day. I also had to use a gel at night to keep my eyes from drying out. It was very painful if they dried out while sleeping. Mine got better after I stopped taking restasis on about month 4 or 5.

I also had very bad halos and it was very difficult to drive at night, now that my eyes have healed, thats gone too. I still feel like my eyes are a little more sensitive to bright headlights then I used to be though.. but I've gotten used to it.

I would go to my doctor every week or so and tell him I was scared and that my eyes were not where they should be. He kept telling me to give it time. I had VERY bad myopia so he told me my eyes would take longer to heal. I gave it time and after the first month or so I was 20/20! I still am 20/20 and my eyes feel 100% normal. I'm about 9months post op and have felt this good for about a few months now. Dont worry things will get better and you'l be very happy you had lasik! It was the best decision I've ever made and I would do it all over again.
[QUOTE=merlintl;4148912]Wow.... I'm a tad over 3 weeks post-Lasik Surgery and wondering if I've made the biggest mistake of my life.... Sigh....

[COLOR="Blue"]Right Eye[/COLOR] - Up until 2 days ago the right eye was rock solid. While I've had halos at night, the visual acuity has been very very good. About 36hrs ago, my right eye's night vision has fallen off a cliff. While everything is perfectly clear and good in daylight, at night I can be 20 feet from the stop sign and still see blurriness in the letters "S" "T" "O" "P".

It started to go blurry Tuesday night. On Tuesday, was outside most of the day (sunglasses). About miday went to the gym (5 mins cardio, very light weights for about 15 mins, sauna 5 mins, whirlpool 5 mins; nothing special). Worked on computer for about 2hrs. Watched TV for a while.

[COLOR="blue"]Left Eye[/COLOR] - After about a week I started seeing a small amount of ghosting / double vision in low light. This has been consistent for the last two weeks. My doc says its part of the natural healing process.


The funny thing is I've been worrying about the left eye and now the right has gone south. Today I saw doc but didn't think too much about last night since I figured I was just dry or something like that. Doc indicated a little bit of dryness but flap and eye looked good. But that fact that tonight, my night vision in right is crap, getting concerned.

Note I've been using Systane Ultra about every 1-2 hrs and still on Omnipred for 1/day dose.

What did I get myself into???[/QUOTE]

Hi! I feel your anxiety and pain - I had conventional ILasik done on 1-15-2010 and, like you, have wondered the same at times - but I have to remember that I spent thirty years severely myopic minus -12.00 on each eye with endless contact and glasses issues; please give yourself time to heal - my eyes continue "to do battle" and my doc reminded me that in my case it was major eye surgery; I have also been rather physically lazy during these last seven weeks - besides work which involves lots of computer time I'm truly taking it easy - my waistline could use some activity but that will come in time; the dry eyes are pesky and I have tried just about all preservative free drops - the restasis is tricky too; halos are better now but oncoming lights at night are definitely more noticed now;
hang in there - best wishes to you!
