... liem123, There is always swelling in the eye after surgery. It causes several things, one is fluctuation in your vision, others are glare, halos and star burst. The swelling should go down within 2 weeks. Then it is normal for your vision to fluctuate up to 3 months. After that time the Dr. may recommend retreating to further your correction. I had Lasik with... (5 replies)
... All: Thank you. I expected the reading glasses ( it was explained to me prior to LASIK) for close up but not medium distance. Thanks for telling me that it will get better. (5 replies)
... am in. I was wondering if anybody is having the same experience an any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Iam also only 37 so should not be suffering from needing reading glasses yet. My doctor also assures me he has not overcorrected me, if anything I am slightly under. ... (2 replies)
... News flash, Jose... this is "normal". As you age, you are going to depend upon reading glasses more and more, LASIK or no LASIK, so you might as well get used to it. ... (2 replies)
... intralase. The Dr. told me that I will probably still need reading glasses as the natural aging process still happens. ... (14 replies)
... Oh Strawxberry! Fear not, I very much doubt it's that serious long-term. Having said that, 20/200 or 20/400? That does sound bad for day 3, but aren't how that would normally be measured. What was your original prescription, and what procedure did you have (LASIK or LASEK, 'Intralase/bladeless/femtosecond/all laser' or with a microkeratome)? Mine was LASIK Intralase... (9 replies)
... I am 52 and never needed glasses until recently. I went to a well known eye doc and he said the best precedure for me was to have PRK because I have thin corneas. I need monovision. ... (1 replies)

... JKM323 - when did you have your lasik? How long did your doc wait until he told you your eyes were not going to improve? I'm bummed too as I'm afraid I might need an enhancement also. I had lasik 3/24 and my eyes haven't really improved since my 24 hour check up. I'm told my eyes are probably still swollen but I have been using my tears every 30 mins and I also used my...
