Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


Two weeks after your initial surgery is too soon in my opinion to "redo" the Lasik. Your eyes are still healing from the first run. How did the Dr. explain that you went from 20/60 to 20/80?? Sounds like he screwed up. You need a second opinion!
Too late for a second opinion. I screwed up having this done to begin with. I can't begin to tell you what a mistake I've made... and why would any doctor recommend lasik on someone with only 20/60, knowing full well he'd ruin the near sight in the process. I had the surgery redone and I can see near now with my left eye, but only 6 inches in front of me. I can no longer see a computer screen which is a foot to 1-1/2 feet in front of me and reading glasses don't help my left/bad eye.... they only work in the right eye. So now I have to pop the lense out of the left side of all my reading glasses. My far sight in the left eye is now worse than it was before I had any of this done, so I will now need a more powerful prescription for distance than I originally used.

Lack of research on my part... probably, but I also relied too much on word of mouth from people I know who had it done and raved about it, not to mention 3 of my favorite radio show hosts as well, who had it done when it first came out many years ago, and to this day, still rave about it. It's a number of things, and of course, trusting the eye doctor as well. I screwed up royally and now I'm screwed. It's a very very expensive lesson I learned. I paid to ruin the sight in one of my eyes. I should have just left well enough alone. :(

P.S. The doctor didn't really explain how I went from 20/60 to 20/80, but he seemed very concerned about getting me back in right away to re-do it, probably because he knew he messed up. Who knows. This doctor has a very good reputation in the field and my family has gone to him over the years, so that's why I went to him. Sigh
