Questions about RCE
Dec 18, 2011
Ok, I'll try to keep this brief, but I'll give you the back story:

I originally had LASIK in August 2010. It all seemed to go well. Around mid-October 2010, I began to experience corneal erosion in my right eye. About 2 weeks later, my left eye followed suit. Over the next few months, I had alternating RCE happening in each eye almost like clockwork every 3 weeks. We tried Muro128, other drops, BCL's, and finally I ended up having the PTK/PRK done. Left eye was done end of Dec 2010 and right eye in Feb 2011. I have not had any recurrence of RCE since these surgeries.

Now, here's the deal: I've still got a fair amount of residual astigmatism in both eyes. Measurements at the clinic put it over -1.50. This, as you might expect, has resulted in some struggles with ghosting and double-vision.

What kind of risk would I be taking in undergoing a LASIK enhancement procedure? Would I basically be singing myself up to have the RCE's back again?
