One eye blurry...
Feb 27, 2012
Hello everyone, I am new here - just had custom Wavefront iLasik this past Thursday (2/23). First, I want to say thank you to everybody for sharing your stories, they have been very helpful to me! From what I have read so far, it seems to be somewhere normal to have some blurred vision for awhile after Lasik. My right eye was perfect almost from the start, but my left eye has been somewhat blurry. At my one-day follow-up, the doc said I had 20/20 in my right eye and 20/30 in my left, and that I had some dry spots in the left that were causing the blurriness. I have been using the drops religiously, and no improvement in that left eye so far. My next appointment isn't until March 14th, should I be worried yet? I was thinking of calling to try to get in sooner, what do you all think? Oh, and I had approximately -6.00 in both eyes before with slight astigmatism.

Thank you!
I know I was told that since I had a pretty high prescription -5.5 and a bad astigmatism in both eyes, that it could take longer than most other people for the vision to stabilize. My right eye is pretty good, but as you saw in my thread I have had some flap issues with the left eye so it is difficult for me to tell if my vision is improving for that eye (pre-stitches it was about 20/50). I hear many people do not reach their best vision until 3-6 months after the LASIK.

I also hear that more lubricating drops help people out. I have not found that to be the case with me, as my blurry vision is not being caused by dryness, but it may help you out some.
Thank you, Blureye - I think my problem might be dryness, as the doc told me at my one-day follow-up that I did have some dry spots on that eye. I'm not sure if astigmatism could be it, I only had .25 in one eye and .5 in the other, but I have heard of Lasik-induced astigmatism so not sure if that could be it. I have been using lubricating drops frequently, so maybe it just needs a little more time to heal. I just hope to get a little more peace of mind at my appointment tomorrow, either that there is a problem that we can treat, or that its all good and just needs more time to heal. :)
