i got my lasik done on august 12th 2014. i was -3.50 in both eyes using soft contact lenses and -2.75(l) and -2.50(r) with some adjustments using glasses.

i got the it done using this machine: alcon femtosecond laser.

my vision for about 5 feet is crisp and clear. but farther i try to see blurrier it gets. i still have ghosting as well.

now here is the thing, say i am sitting at 8-10 feet away from something, its blurry and as soon as i put optive carbo cellulose eye drops things become fairly clear. but it only lasts for few seconds at most because eyes get dry again.

now what the heck is this about? is it dry eyes or something else. my doctor says give it a time.
I had PRK done but very similar. Your Dr is right. It takes time. Things are still healing. You're eyes will be dry. I recommend the eye drops your using plus TheraTears nutrition capsules. They work wonders!

Good luck!

how big are your pupils? I have ghosting in dim light caused by large pupils and the only thing that makes it go away temporarily is alphagan p drops.
I'm guessing your eyes are not that dry - if they were, things would be extremely painful.

What probably happens is that the optive, which is pretty thick, acts as a lens and momentarily brings things sort of into focus (in the same way that you can see a tiny image in a water droplet). Then the drop flattens out on the surface of your eye and the effect goes away.

I'm confused that the numbers are so different between the soft contacts and glasses that you used. Were they the actual prescriptions?
