Hi all,
I am hoping that some of you who had ghosting after 4+ weeks can chime in. I had 0.0 astigmatism before PRK. My prescription was really low at -1.25 before surgery with 0 astigmatism. Now, my post op is showing a blue spot on the topography and a -2.7 astigmatism.

Supposedly without the astigmatism, my vision is 20/25 now post-PRK. However, the ghosting (horizontal when looking close up and vertical when looking far away) is so bad that it's essentially taken away my vision. It isn't correctable with glasses.

For those who had ghosting.. did your docs say they saw an astigmatism on your eye that was causing it? I use my drops constantly, and Im still on the steroid one time per day. Im on day 28 post-op today. My optometrist (not the surgeon) said the area that is flat is shrinking, and he takes that as an optimistic sign.. ?

What I don't know is if the doc took off some area that he shouldn't have (thereby flattening the cornea and creating an astigmatism) or if this is a normal post surgical astigmatism that will resolve on its own. Im getting different answers from different folks, and looking for some thoughts that perhaps this indeed may self resolve and I will wake up one day able to see again.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Anyone have an astigmatism they didn't have before surgery? Did it resolve on its own? I am highly regretting doing this surgery at this point and tired of taking an uber everywhere.
