Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Hello all,
I just wanted to drop by and give an update on my almost 1 year post surgery. So if you've read the previous posts you will find that I was very disappointed with my lasik outcome because it turned my world upside down. I had worn glasses for over 14 years and the thought of having perfect vision without the need for glasses encouraged me to go thru with the surgery. Unfortunately surgeons are not as worried about your eye health as they are about their profit. But I cannot put all the blame on them because ultimately I was the one who decided to go through with it. At the time not only was I dealing with an awful lasik outcome but I was also going thru divorce and to make things worse I lost my job 2 months after getting the surgery done. I felt like I hit rock bottom and at a given point I felt hopeless. I was depressed but now I have regained my life. Would I do it again if I had the chance to go back in time? Absolutely not. Thankfully I have recovered most of my clear vision. I would say I'm at 95% of what I used to see with glasses. Dry eyes was a major issue for the first 5 months or so. I had to keep putting eye drops every hour or so. Now I use them once in a while when my eyes feel very dry. I still have the floaters which look like clear strands floating through my field of vision. I have learned to ignore them and now only see them when I really pay attention to them. I can say that my life is back to normal. Of course the possible long term effects still linger in the back of my mind but I pray to God that he will watch over me and not let anything bad happen to my eyesight. During this time of hardship prayer helped me get through this experience. I strongly believe God healed my eyes. I've always been a church goer but the past couple years I had drifted away but thankfully God doesn't drift away ...he's always there to help in time of need. All we need to do is have faith and believe. I just want you all to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I know a lot of people post about their experiences here but they don't give an update....assuming things got better for them. I just wanted to share my experience with you guys
I wish you guys much health and happiness.
