[QUOTE=KevinK2014;5308984]Henrietta, yes - both eyes. Left for near vision, right(dominant eye) for distance.

I, too had what I would consider eye fatigue in my left eye the first few days, but that has subsided. My eyes feel pretty good now, a week after the procedure. Just some mild dryness. It's just that I can't see very well beyond a few feet.

I have brief moments where it seems like my distance vision becomes clear, but they only seem to last for a second. The Dr. Said my vision would fluctuate for 3 months, but I thought that meant it would be overall good vision with moments of poor sight - not the other way around.[/QUOTE]

Hi Kevin
How are things going-any improvement?
I had check up today and been given some different eye drops without preservative in them plus some gel to put in at bed time.

Hi Henrietta,

Not much change. Perhaps just a slight improvement - very slight. I spoke to the Dr's assistant a day ago. She sounded surprised that I was having difficulty with my distance vision. I learned from her that I was using the wrong eye drops - they were not preservative free. She explained that bottled artificial tears contain preservatives that can irritate the cornea. I had already stocked up on the preservative free drops and switched. She said to use that liberally over the next few days and report back.

I'll keep you posted. Thanks for your comments. I wish you well with your follow-up.
Hi Kevin
I am also finding my eyesight comes and goes. I had one day a few days ago in the sun shine when everything was totally amazing-just after I changed eye drops. Today it is a bit less clear and my left eye feels a bit smarting despite plenty of eye drops.
Sometimes I can read the TV and sometimes I can't. My near vision is even more variable ranging from blind as a bat to being able to read the computer.
Last night I noticed the sky had more stars in it which was fab. The smaller ones obviously got lost in the general blur before I had the LASIK done.
Let me know how your check up goes. Mine is also in 2 weeks time
Update...I had my 1 month visit. This visit was with my normal optometrist - not the surgeon that did my procedure. I really struggled with the chart. I was almost seeing double on the chart. It was 10 feet away and in a dark room, which is a bad combination for me. Near vision was quite good.

Optometrist said I probably needed an enhancement, and if it were up to him he would have it done right away. But he first would consult with the surgeon. I heard back today after their conversation. The surgeon and optometrist confirmed my numbers and confirmed that was what the laser was programmed to produce.

In the end, the surgeon said to wait two more months (90 days total) to see if there is any improvement. In the meantime, they said to use eye drops aggressively (which I have been doing anyway). Optometrist said he would get me glasses to wear while I am driving at night.

I feel certain I will ultimately need the enhancement. There has been no noticeable improvement in the past 2-3 weeks. My vision is good for reading, and fair for daytime driving. Otherwise it is poor.
Hi Kevin,

Can you please update us on your progress. I am 10 days post lasik and still with blurry vision. Your story kind of describes mine. Hope to hear from you.
