So we both had exactly the same procedure, except my prescription was much stronger, so yours should be a bit quicker. I wasn't 20/20 on the 1-day check, just "driving standard", but by Friday's 8 day the left eye was straight down to the 20/20 line.

I actually feel my vision's still wonky, but that's a combination of poor close vision (which cheap reading glasses will fix) and some lingering myopia and astigmatism in the right eye. Looking out of the window right now, I see the house across the street in perfect focus (the left eye doing all the work) - I just wish my reading glasses had shown up yesterday as promised!

Oh - I just remembered: at the 8 day mark, I was told my vision "might" still shift a little bit (but I think it's pretty much done now) - but I'd also just come off the week-long course of antibiotics and steroids, and the optometrist noted the steroids themselves tend to screw up your vision a bit. I'm pretty sure the end of the steroids made a difference, too. Presumably you've only just reached the end of your week of drops?
I know how you feel there - although that doesn't sound like a big deterioration to me; my -0.5D myopia with 1D astigmatism wasn't far off being able to struggle through the 20/20 line.

My +1 reading glasses arrived this morning, which make a BIG difference for closeup work in the mean time. Interestingly, I had been OK until now with my right eye (the slightly short-sighted one) but the "20/20" left couldn't manage to focus; today, both struggle with close up focus and do much better with the reading glasses on, which I think is a good sign: I'm hoping the right eye's catching up the left now.

Oh, when you've just come off the antibiotic and steroid drops, you might want to compensate by stepping up the artificial tear drops a lot - with hindsight, I screwed up there. (I went straight from 12 drops a day to 4, which wasn't enough in my case, so my eyes dried up and took a day or two to be comfortable again.)
