... Elizabeth, I had Lasik last year and didn't have any swelling that I am aware of. The steriod drops they give you to use are supposed to keep all of that under control, and help the eyes to heal properly. ... (16 replies)
... I had LASIK about a week and a half ago. At my one week post op, the doctor said that my right eye was still very swollen and that as the swelling goes down my vision "should" improve. My left eye is doing fabulous, but I can't see a whole lot with my right, in fact I'd say It is worse now than before the surgery. ... (16 replies)
... I'm hoping mine is just swelling also and it will go down. I am a proven slow healer in other surgeries I've had. ... (16 replies)

... Aug 11 will be 3 months for you then. Make sure that your refraction has not changed. This means, before they do the enhancement, make sure your refraction is the same twice in a row. ... (16 replies)
... questions. I also read where a woman had the same refraction for 2 months in a row, but by the 4th month, everything was perfect for her. So time can heal this, before an enhancement is considered. USAEYES. ... (16 replies)
... Hi Elizabeth, I had lasik surgery on May 11th - and I still do not have the vision that I was told I would have. It's been a long, slow recovery period. I may be looking at an enhancement as well. From what I understand - they do not have to cut a new flap - so the procedure should be slightly easier than before. How are you doing now? Any better? I'm still hoping... (16 replies)
... One thing that helped me go from having to put drops in my eyes that often to being able to drop them once in the morning when I woke up and once in the evening before I went to bed was Refresh Liquigel. I started using it April 28th and my eyes have been so much better. ... (16 replies)
... Yep, it certainly is a downer, isn't it? My post-op instructions stated you can expect to have 70% of your vision by the next day - and able to drive. 90% there by the weekend - and 100% by 3 weeks. Well - so much for setting the proper expectations! I could not drive the next day. Still feel unconfortable driving without glasses even today (only do this locally). ... (16 replies)
... As for the enhancement...I don't know for sure how that works but, I think, after 3 months of healing, your doc may be able to do it. ... (16 replies)
... a problem with the flap, then I would sit tight for another week or two. Be sure to use the steroid drops several times a day and that you shake the container up before using them. You also may want to try lubricating drops such as Systane as often as you think are necessary. ... (16 replies)
... Well, the thing in my eye ended up being an eyelash (how embarrassing that I didn't see it). Vision hasn't improved at all though. I'm resigned to having to have an enhancement... question: is an enhancement performed the same as the original surgery? (cutting the cornea and all?) (16 replies)
... lghook, Congrats! I am so happy to hear that you are fine now and happy with your site! That is good to hear and I am sure it gives hope to anyone who has had a bad experience! Congrats! (16 replies)
... Yes - then I did have the refractives tested. Blinking and staring at the chart - things always seem to change when I look at it. Ahhh! I will be asking lots of questions to both my surgeon and my post op doctor next visit. I did have custom zyoptics - and enhancements are free for the first year. However - I really would rather not go in for Lasik again. Have you... (16 replies)
... Laura, I can understand your depression. I had surgery June 2 and was told 'I would be seeing just fine in 2 weeks'.....well, I'm still blurry, fussy, double vision and also had cells under my flap. SO, I'm there with ya! Some people here have stated that it took them the full 6 months to truly appreciate their vision. Were you a high myope prior to surgery? I was a -8L... (16 replies)
... I didn't have any of this when I had my surgery. I would suggest, at the very least, you call the doctor and explain your symptoms. Were it me and my eyes, if I had those symptoms, I would not wait till the 8th to see the doctor. That is OVER two weeks from now. Take care, (16 replies)
... No improvement yet. In fact, I'm going to say it is worse. Now it feels like I have something in my right eye, sand or something, but I didn't find anything. I keep flushing my eye with wetting drops, but to no avail. As for the steroid, the doc said to use for the first 4 days only. My next appointment is June 8, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed until then. (16 replies)
