Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

:angel: Hi there, I'm responding because I scoured the internet in desperation for answers with my lasik experience. I had -4.75 with a 4.0 astigmatism and -2.75 right eye. I had lasik and an enhancement procedure six months later. In the end my surgery was a success and worth all the aggravation from long healing processes. I am 29 years old. I was confused and worried as I wasn't instantly perfect the next week. I took a very long time to heal, which surprised me because I thought I am usually a quick healer in regards to everything else. Don't panick. I had halos for a month post lasik. I couldn't drive and my eyes were super sensitive to light. I also had the suction marks which took about 6 weeks to go away if not 8 weeks. Dry eyes were about 6-8 months. It was very annoying as my friends that had it done seemed to have instant gratification and I was concerned there was something wrong! I ended up after the first procedure having good vision to the point where I did not need glasses. However the astigmatism was brought down to only a 2.0 which disturbed me. Therefore 6 months later I took the doc up on the enhancement for free. I am so glad I did it! I love my vision now and did not even know you could see this great! Hang in there and try not to compare yourself to other people like I did or the tv shows that show people perfect the next day or next week. Keep those drops coming. I'm no doc but I drove myself nuts with worry and I wish I could go back in time and let myself know it was all VERY VERY WORTH IT! I think you will be fine. I hope this helps.
