[QUOTE=ShortyGurl65;5104723]I had Custom Vue LASIK a month ago. My distance vision is great now. No more glasses for driving and seeing far off. The problem is now my close up vision has drastically decreased. Before the surgery I did not rely on glasses to see the pc, read a book ect. The only thing I needed them for close up was to see the small print on pill bottles or tiny print on packages. Now I cannot see the computer, keyboard, read anything up close , or tell which button on my fridge is ice or water! Trying to cook is a challange also, I can see what I'm doing but it's far from clear. I go back for my one month follow up next week. Has anyone had this happen and will it get better? I am hoping I did not trade off one set of glasses for another ![/QUOTE]

Hi Shortygurl, I had LASIK done 2 days ago and opted for correction of both eyes for distant vision. I was shocked that my vision is blurry under 12 feet. I have to wear reading glass +1.50 for practically anything. Did your near vision improved? How long did it take for your near vision to improve?
How was your near vision now? I had LASIK done 2 days ago and I am experiencing blurry vision under 12 feet. Anything you can share with me?
I had LASIK done 2 days ago. I had presbyopia prior to correction. I opted to correct both eyes for distant vision. Now I have blurry vision for seeing anything under 12 feet. I have to wear reading glasses to read a book, check my iPad, surf the net and practically doing anything requiring close vision. Can anyone share their experience with me?
I am 50 I just had Lasik on 5/2/2014..I lobe the fact that my distance vision is great however I cant see up close at all everything 3' ahead of me is blurry. My keyboard , monitor cant see at all cooking doing a simple task with a screwdriver cant see the screw head. My doctor never told me this would happen he kept saying I would need cheaters to read I am using +1.25 now however I need to be 2+' away to see anything cant use ipad or smartphone..I hope this will get a little better. I rather see up close I sit at a desk all day and do paper work my first day pack to work after the weekend was a nightmare

Same here. I'm two weeks out. "You'll need reading glasses" the Dr. said. I took that to mean for things like, oh, I don't know. READING? I'm blurry out to about 8 feet. I think it's getting a bit better, but it's a huge change from 30 years of blind-as-a-bat distance vision and taking my glasses off and having great close-up vision.

Plus my left eye is a bit blurry at all distances. At my one week follow up the doc says it's astigmatism. What? I didn't have astigmatism before the procedure. Apparently I'll probably need a touch up in 6 months, but in the meantime it's driving me nuts. I'm not a happy camper.

I' just like you too! Funny how a lot of us never knew it would be this way but now we deal with it the best we can and keep positive if possible. My readers are blurry for things like splinter removal and since one eye has astigmatism and a little better up close vision, it is hard to adjust. My readers work for one eye and sort of for the other......I'm 3 months post op and go in next week to the Dr. I hope to get answers...Good luck to all of you dealing with this issue that us older crowd see to be going through. I'm 47 by the way..

I'm 48. And yeah, my readers are driving me nuts (I use a computer all day at work). I'm only seeing through one eye. If I have to wait 6 months for an enhancement, I'm going to need some prescription readers for sure.
