Strange Results - Help With Questions to Ask

Postby Bouncing » Thu Jul 19, 2007 3:19 pm

Morning. I had Lasik in March 2007 and a retreatment in early June 2007. Results after the initial treatment were not stellar, but I was warned that I might need an retreatment. Results six weeks after the retreatment are bad and also confusing, since they seem significantly worse that after the initial treatment.

I'm planning to get a second opinion on how my eyes are healing and what is up, and wanted some help with questions to ask both my surgeon and the doctor I do the follow up with.

Numbers below are left eye only. That is the one with the problems.

Pre Lasik -- OS -10.25 x +2.25 x 80
Three months after initial treatment -- OS -0.75 x +2.50 x 152
Six weeks after retreatment -- OS -3.00 x +2.75 x 85

Thanks for your help.

The second opinion will be very revealing. The significant regression after the enhancement surgery indicates you had an agressive wound response, have some corneal edema (swelling), or possibly ectasia, which is a forward movement of the cornea due to being weakened by tissue removal.

Please let us know the results of the second opinion.
