UPDATE!!

I started this thread right after my surgery and wanted to update on how things are going. I am now 10 months post surgery.

Overall I am very happy and my sight is 20/40 on my worst days. A bad day for me is usually just because of dry eyes, but I am no longer carrying around eye drops at all times (like I did for the first 7 months). I do have minor fluctuation in my eyesight still, but nothing like it was the first six months.

With glasses for correction I saw 20/20. On a good day my eyesight is around 20/25. My eyesight has never been as sharp as it was with glasses, but the convenience has outweighed the difference.

One scare in this whole process was my eyesight deterioration when using computers. I like to surf the internet and up to five months after surgery I really had to limit my time spent reading a computer screen. My eyes would tire and get to the point that I was pushing Ctrl + to make text bigger so I could read it. At three months I could only spend about 1-2 hours reading a computer screen before my eyes were fatigued and needed to rest. Once I passed the eight month mark I could browse the net all day long, read an e-book on an android phone and do anything else without any eye fatigue.

Overall I am very happy with the result. I am able to drive at night with no issues. I don't see any halos around lights. I can see moderately well at a distance and I can see excellent up close (which was the most important to me).

Although I would recommend this procedure to other glasses/contacts wearers. If my eyesight deteriorated I would not have the procedure redone due to not wanting to redo the loooong healing process, once was enough.

Yea, how can we trust people and these "doctors" when lasik is not what they say, all is good, in a month etc. Cornea heals extremely faster, but what we need to wait 6 + months for everything to stabilize, 6 months or a years is not a problem if surgery is performed on some other part of body, but when you get fluctuations with eyes, can't do some things you could have done before for a long time, extremely frustrating. I like playing games, watching movies, but i hadn't done that for 6 months because of this problem with contrast sensitivity after lasik, didn't know how it could become boring if these are stuff you love.

Anyway, so you have done enhancment of wavefront guided? I think they did t me wavefront optimized, that was when i was confused about it, i thought wavefront is individual eye scans, but it is if it is custom not optimized. So i don't get it, why would they go with optimized, not offer me custom if it can get better results and eliminate other abberations. Is there a downsied for custom guided? for big prescriptions, more tissue removal?
