7 months still blurry

Postby cindy » Mon Jul 14, 2008 2:36 pm

Hello Guys.
I had my surgery done on Dec 20th, 2007. It has been 7 months but my vision is still blurry. My vision was -3.75 and -4.25 with astigmatism. I checked with my optomitrist, he said everything is fine. My surgeon said because the dryness is still there, so I feel blurry. I am using Genteal eye lubricate eyedrops and taking Flaxseed oil right now. I am worrying about my eyes. Is there anyone who had the problem and how long did it take to recover?

Thank you so much...
cindy

Dry eyes certainly can cause poor vision quality, however residual or induced refractive error can also make vision blurry. What is your current eye prescription?

Dry eyes related to Lasik can be a stubborn problem, especially if the exact nature of the cause is not diagnosed and if treatment is not specific to that need.

It is surprising that your doctor has not prescribed Restasis for the dry eye problem. You may want to read our article on Lasik dry eye treatment.

My current prescription is 20/25 for both eyes.
I went a world renowed eye institution in Canada. I am not sure if he did something wrong. But the surgeon kept saying everything is going well. The dryness will go away later.. I don't know what to do...I feel so frustrated.

Let your doctor know your frustration and ask if the organization has a dry eye specialist or if your doctor could recommend a dry eye specialist that you can have examine you for a second opinion.

It may very will be that this is your personal healing route, but a second opinion will either give you some peace of mind that you are going in the correct direction, or that you need a different treatment plan that the second opinion doctor can provide.
