... 1) Unknown. Sorry. 2) The epithelium was put back on, and a contact lens was put on after that. 3) Yes. I just did eye exercises and stayed away from focusing on 1 thing too long.

... Thank you all for posting your experience. I am deciding on Epi-Lasik now. I've read many ophthalmologists articles on how it's the "safest" especially without ALCOHOL and removing the epithelium entirely to speed up healing. But then running into this forum, people write about Epi-Lasik not being great. So it's frustrating b/c not everyone lists details. Can I ask you... (8 replies)

Good thing I... (13 replies)
... I had my epi-lasik almost four weeks ago. My vision is slowly getting better...but it is very frustrating...so I understand everyone else's frustration. My doctor told me that it will take a few months for the clarity to improve...he said I can see very close to 20/20...but I find that hard to believe! I started driving after about one week...but still don't feel... (13 replies)
... Mlewis - Thank you so much for your reply! I know that having been through it yourself you know how aggravating this lack of information is. I'm one month out from my distance eye and still no change. My near eye is great.

... Epi-lasik patients are very rare on the internet and the few I've read were thrilled with their results in 2 - 3 weeks. Not me. I had my left eye corrected for monovision(reading) 7weeks ago and am pleased with those results even though my vision was clearer the first two weeks. The problem is my right eye which was corrected for distance. I couldn't see two feet right... (13 replies)

... Just had my 4 month exam. I tested at 20/20. The line wasn't very sharp, but I could read all the letters. One thing that I am continuing to do is take vitamins, get plenty of rest, not strain my eyes, etc. I have the "miracle eye course method" and used it before the surgery, that course is great because when I was wearing contacts, I went from a -4.75 to a -3.50 in about 8...
