Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

I thought I'd chime in...

I had custom wavefront done in January. I'm 26 years old and have been wearing contacts/glasses since I was 10. I stabled out at a -5.75 prescription for about 3 years prior to the surgery. No astigmatism.

It's been about 6 months since the surgery and overall I'm pretty happy with it. There is one problem that bugs me. My right (dominant) eye can see very very very good afar. Noticeably crisper than my left. At about 15 feet and closer the tables turn. From 15 feet (give or take) and closer, my left eye is crisper. The thing is though it only happens in lower light, office light as well. Outside it doesn't bother me at all until the sun goes down, then I notice it. Also, on the computer screen with both eyes open I can read fine, but with my right eye it's very strained looking at the screen. When I squint, the strain seems to lessen a significant amount. One of my hobbies is playing computer games and it's very annoying to do so. I can do it, but it's not very comfortable. My lasik doctor tested me out last week and showed me at 20/15 on both eyes (however, the 20/20 and 20/15 lines weren't as crisp as I'd like them). He scheduled me to see a very good ophthalmologist the beginning of September to have him test my eye muscles, because he is very very pleased with the optics of my eyes. It's one of those situations that you can see pretty darn good but you just know it can be better.

From researching on my own I feel as if my right eye may be over-corrected a smidgen? Could it be dry eyes? I have noticed that my right eye is usually the dry one (even back when I wore contacts, it was the right eye that always gave me the dry eye problems).

I use restasis, thera tears (tablet gel form), and systane ultra.

Can anyone comment on my situation? Dry eyes? Should I get glasses for the computer (specifically for computer gaming)? I'm obviously going to go to the ophthalmologist in a little over a month to see if he sees any problems. Sometimes I'm compulsive to a fault and when I get my mind thinking about my eyes it really frustrates me.
