... I had Lasik back in January to correct significant nearsightedness. Unlike you, I was overcorrected and am now somewhat farsighted. ... (2 replies)
... I'm not sure about the healing time after an enhancement, but I would think that it would be the same as the healing time after your original surgery. Just remember that most doctors suggest you wait AT Least 3 - 6 months before you consider an enhancement. Dry eyes and lots of things can cause your vision to flucuate during the healing period. Also, sometimes there are... (1 replies)
... in my right, although some days it feels slightly worse than that, but there is no way I would get an enhancement on it. ... (2 replies)

... ve been told that LASIK would put my K reading around 49 or so and I would probably need an enhancement. ... (0 replies)
... Well I had my correction done and the vision almost perfect for distance now. This was three months ago and I still have dry eye but otherwise things seem good. The optometrist says that I am -.25 in the left eye and 0.0 in the right eye. That works for me. There's some prism though but otherwise the vision is great. The doctor was great in Istanbul and the Clinic was... (20 replies)
... So, if this sticks, I'm thinking about enhancement surgery to bring that back to normal. Farsightedness is worse than the nearsightedness I had since nothing is in focus and I need strong readers to read. I'm 55. ... (20 replies)
... Still curious about the "enhancement" (yeah, that term cracks me up too). Did you have CustomView, that is, the Wavefront scan? And if so, did they do that test again to get your prescription?

... Yep, it's the same. I've read that it's not really right to call it an enhancement, makes it sound less somehow, but it's really surgery again with the same risks as the 1st time. They did give me the goggles, but i haven't worn them as I wear a CPAP and it's very uncomfortable with all that on my face. ... (67 replies)
... It's tough for me....for example, today it's not very noticeable. It's 50/50 if I'd do it again....depending on my mood (LOL). My problem was that I hated contacts, especially in my right eye, were it would bug the living hell out of me. It always felt like there was something in it. Well, guess what? That issue is still with me. That is the reason I went to the... (6 replies)
... Just a note on the contacts... Yes, they worked well actually and interestingly I didn't have any dry eye with them in because they were moisturized. I had one eye for near and one eye for distance (monovision) which worked perfectly. I'm planing on wearing one for near distance in my non-dominant eye as soon as the doctor gives his okay. I hope you are all doing well! ... (20 replies)
... There are risks to consider and they can happen to anyone! I thought i wouldn't have a problem....i am scheduled for an enhancement next month. Hopefully that will correct the problem. ... (8 replies)

... if you had these potential complications, the doctor should have discussed the risks with you and try to find a way to reduce the risk of complications. It sounds like you were not the ideal lasik candidate. ... (15 replies)
