[QUOTE=Merville;5174554]Hi I hope things improve for you, I know how desperate you must feel. I had Lasik done 12 months ago (aged 59) with a very high prescription and suffered badly from dry eyes. Also had problems seeing anything close up. Unfortunately, the doctors do gloss over the period it takes to recover, for some it may well be quick but for others it can be a long process. Initially I could do nothing, Watching TV was too difficult, I could not use the computer or drive. I became very depressed. 12 months on, things are very much better. I still have dry eyes and need to take drops but not as frequently as before ( now roughly every three/four hours during the day. At the start it was every half hour and I was in still in pain) and it is a lot better than it was and I am now able to get on with my life. For me it was a slow process and I would have to say that I saw very little improvement for the first 8 months and it has really only been in the last three that I have noticed real improvements. A nurse who had also had eye laser surgery informed me that for her it took nearly 24 months before she fully healed! At two/nine months, I would have said that it was the worst decision that I ever made but now I am starting to feel a lot more positive over it. Consider using: heated eye gel pads, particularly before sleeping. Also consider having temporary plugs inserts, this will help retain tears drops. You will read some real horror stories on the web pages and regrettably some people do not improve but most do over time. This industry does need to be better regulated to provide people with all the facts and the real risks in having this surgery however for you and I that is too late and you need to accept that it could be many months before you truly get your life back to how it was. Good Luck[/QUOTE]
