I had my surgery on 2-15-2007 and I am so happy. I am currently at 20/25 in my right eye and 20/40 to my left.
This was my previous prescription below
OD -1.00 -6.00 180
OS -1.00 -6.75 180
I will have to go back in 3 months to get a tweek because the machine doesn't go that high. I go back on Thursday for my week post op and im so excited. This is the best thing I have ever done. I don't have dry eye like I keep hearing about but I also keep putting in drops at least every hour.Also I do not see any halos or ghosting. For those that are looking into Lasik please verify that the doctor is certified.

Im skeptical...

Do you have any starbursting or excessive bright lights at night or in general???

Are you sure that your not having some forms of side effects?

Nobody normally walks away unscathed from some residual noticeable outcome...

Is nt there something that we should know???

Not true at all. Many problems resolve with healing. The occurrance of a complication is not the same thing as an unresolved complication.

Hello Mike R,

I have not driven at night or gone out at night yet but I will be happy to respond once I do. I just have no need to yet.

I still have not had dry eyes or halos or ghosting. cross my fingers. I completely understand your skeptism and again I will respond on the night lights when I have a need to go out at night.

I had my post op on Friday and the doctor said I was 20/20 in my right eye and basically 20/20 in my left eye the only difference is I can read the 20/30 line and 3 letters on the 20/20 line. I am so thankful I had excellent doctors.

As good as your current results are lets not forget the apropriate response of "its a 6 month process rather than a 20min miracle"...

There could be a chance of regression...

A little objective interjection should nt go unmentioned...

I took care of it...

Just kidding glad to hear it -1.00

Someone was due for alittle saturday night ribbing anyway...

I think it's pretty rare to have absolutely no dry eye after Lasik. Congratulation.

I too had no problems

Postby lkestler » Thu May 24, 2007 6:00 am

I had Lasik done on March 29th and I have had no complications or side effects. If I had dry eye I did not notice it. I had 20/20 vision the day after the procedure. I drove at night for the first time 2 days after the procedure and had no problems. My vision was pretty bad to begin with, something like -7 in the one eye and -8 in the other eye with a slight astigmatism. No side effects maybe rare but I am living proof that it does happen.
