I am now almost three months out and still have the glare and the halos. I also can't see with or without glasses most days. It is very depressing. My doctor says as soon as we get my eyes to "stabilize" he will do a tweak. At this point I am not sure I trust him. I go back every month and have my vision checked and it is never the same from one month to the next. I am using 2.00 reading glasses right now and everything is blurry. This is the single worst decision I have made in my life. Do you mind if I age your age? I am curious if the results are worst after 40 or not. It seems there are far more people out there having trouble than the doctors admit there are. Good luck to you. I hope your experience is better than mind.

Hi, I had Halos, glare and starbursts to keep my dry eyes company after LASIK! Initially the halo effect appeared in daylight as well the night giving people and objects a halo around them. Glare and starbursts was bad enough to prevent me from driving in the evening as I deemed it too dangerous. For me the halo effect started to improve after around three months and was no longer a problem after circa 6 months. I still have issues with glare and starburst at night but it is no where near as bad as it was and I am now content to drive again at night. It has now been 12 months since my LASIK and I not sure if the glare/startbursts will ever get reduce to pre-lasik days, but I would have to say that aspect is not a major issue any longer for me. I do need reading glasses +2 but I was warned about this prior to the op. Initially my short vision was terrible, everything was a blur within 6 feet but again this has improved a lot over the 12 months too and I can see without glasses close objects and use the glasses for sharpness. But as I am now just turned 60 I assume reading glasses would have eventually been needed anyway. As previously stated I believe the recovery period is much, much longer than the industry is willing to admit too and longer term issues do effect some. Stronger laws need to be put in place to provide people with all the facts and risks to allow an educated decision to be made. Regrettably we all accepted the hype and went ahead, excuse the pun, with our eyes shut! At three months I was desperate and deeply depressed but at 12 months I am much more positive although I still have issues with dryness but again no where near as bad as it was at 3 and 6 months.

I am 24 years old, I think the results are better when you are young. don't quote me on that. Right now, I am also going through depression and anxiety since my surgery. I was thinking, can we do sue these doctor even though we signed the consent form? If we sue the doctor, do we have a chance of winning?
