Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

So I had lasik done in July 25th. 2011 which is 3 months post op, and i'm not enjoying my vision. In fact, my vision is all I nearly think about! Let me explain further.

I started to take zoloft after lasik because I couldn't sleep at night and I have felt VERY depressed. I went to my surgeon about 1 month post op and I have 20/20 in my left eye and 20/25 in my right eye. Which is fine but the quality of it is not what I expected. He said everything was alright. I didn't feel satisfied with it though. I've been taking zoloft to relax me and it has done a great job so far. Sometimes I think I needed zoloft before my surgery.

My Main problem with the surgery is ghosting in my right eye. The moon resembles something like this. My left eye does not have severe ghosting though.

Another Issue I have is the contrast loss or harder to see in low lit environments. Sometimes I fell there is not enough contrast in some areas in my house Especially in low lit environments. Is this a common side effect? This really bugs the hell out of me. Knowing That I can't see well in areas that I used to see fine in even though I have nearly perfect vision!

Sunlight seems to be even brighter than normal and the glare is still pretty bad. I have barely any problems with dry eyes.

Has anyone been unfortunate as I am and had these? It's harder to live my life thinking I've ruined my vision. My next visit to the surgeon is at the end of this Nov.

Any advice?
