So I had all laser LASIK about 1 1/2 weeks ago from a very reputable doctor and I'm have slight blurriness in my right eye. My prescription was -4.25 in both eyes, no astig.

I know it is still soon after surgery to have final results, and there are other threads about this same issue, but the thing that worries me is on all those threads I do not see anyone seeing any improvement.

I have let my doc know this on my 2 follow up visits and she keeps telling me to wait, and make sure I put my artificial tears in. She says the flaps and health of my eyes are perfect.

The one thing that worries me is that with a pinhole ocular test it eliminates the blurriness. Would that not indicate that my right eye is under corrected? My left eye is VERY sharp. I am not really experiencing any pain, just some slight discomfort from what is probably the straining of my right eye.

I see my doctor again in about 1 1/2 weeks, but until then this is driving me nuts and I cannot find any stories about improvement or what it means when a pinhole DOES improve vision.
Hi My correction was first week in Feb and yes Dr thought it would imorove. See my other thread describing exercises I have been doing.
Yes I had astig before first procedure but eyes were pretty good before correction and no mention of astigmatism just prescription minor adjustment
Thought I would give an update as there seems to be some change today.

Both eyes seem to be very similar in terms of vision, however not because my right eye has improved(although I feel it has slightly), but because my left eye has degraded a tiny bit. I expected fluctuations in the first month or so so I'm not worried, kind of relieved as it is more comfortable having both eyes this way. It gives me more hope that my right eye will improve because before I was worried as my left eye had been very sharp and stable for a week while my right eye was blurry consistently for a week.
I had LASIK last March so I am just about a year in. I noticed my eyesight fluctuate quite a bit in the first few months. My eyes have for the most part settled down with my left eye being sharp at a distance and a touch on the imperfect side up close and the opposite for my right eye. With both eyes open it is hard to notice because one corrects for the other. I did develop floaters in my right eye but I'm starting to notice them less and less (they are not disappearing but my brain is learning to tune them out).

I have noticed my eyesight is much crisper on a nice sunny day than at night in a dimly lit setting.

As everyone is different, it is impossible to say how your case is going to play out but do not be overly discouraged if your vision is not where you want it to be right now. Expect fluctuations. I know people personally that have said their eyesight continued to improve over the first few years.

I had my checkup two days ago, and the doctor said my left eye is perfect, my right now has a prescription of - 0.5. It hasn't improved but I've adjusted to it a bit. She said it wouldn't be possible to ******** an enhancement on it as she says it would be hit or miss to correct that small of a prescription. It's annoying but I feel like it will become less noticeable. I have lost all hope that the actual vision will improve.
