... I had a myopic regression - by the 3 month check, I was stable at -1 and -3 diopters (with about a diopter of astigmatism). The dry eye was quite bad early on, and I had an allergic reaction to one of the drops (a lanolin based overnight dry-eye gel), but now it's fine apart from floaters: I wear glasses (much thinner and lighter than I had before) and use the low-strength...

... Not everybody who notice them after surgery has the conviction to put the blame on the surgery, I guess. First I wasn't sure about that cause I thought it was due to my new eyes acuity but every time I'm looking through the window on sunny days it's annoying me so much that I just realize it's more due to the surgery. The acceptance is becoming more easier with time. I just... (4 replies)

... Hi Missy! Yes, I finally decided to check it out over here. I read a little of your dry eye post, and see that there are others out here with the same problem :(. Sorry you are having the floater issue too. I was hoping it had nothing to do with the lasik, but perhaps it does. I really can't say I remember noticing them before. And they are real obvious now when I look... (4 replies)

One week post-op I was 20/20 in my right and 20/15 in my left. ... (4 replies)
