Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Had custom Lasik (Wavefront) two days ago. Vision was -6 with slight astigmatism. My right (dominate) eye is awesome 20/10 the next morning. My left eye was 20/30. It is still blurry even for reading armlength or closer and the crispness is not there. Feels like wearing a dirty contact lens. During the surgery after the flap was replaced the dc asked to see the microkeratome again and placed it over my eye moving the position. At the 1 day post op visit i told him my vision was as good in my left eye. He said that could be normal because most people don't hold a hand over their eye to test the vision in each eye. I did notice him making a note in my chart about wedge and flap in left eye but told me everything is healing normally. I am starting to FREAK OUT because I have been on the internet reading horror stories. Has anyone else had one eye blurry and it just take a little while for it heal fully????
My left eye is fine - technically, it's about a quarter-dioptre off, which is one quarter of the lowest level of correction reading glasses come in. I can look across the valley I live in and see the individual trees clearly.

It's the right eye that is undercorrected: anything beyond about six feet is out of focus. I have the option of re-lasering it ... I'm not yet certain which way to go on that. Proper focusing on both eyes would be nice, but worth going through surgery and healing again? I'm not sure.

(The 'floaters' and 'dry eye' are much bigger issues for me than the right eye being a bit blurred, at this point.)
I honestly think doctors telling me my current situation is normal is a bunch of crap. It's the third day and my vision is still 20/200 or 20/400 They say it takes 3 months for things to settle in much better and within a week things may get less blurry. I'm starting to have trouble believing that. I think this surgery was the dumbest thing I ever did, I practically paid 3 grand to end my 19 year old life.
