1 Week Post Lasik

Postby kiddhan625 » Mon Mar 02, 2009 1:24 am

I am 1 week post lasik and have a question. I am seeing 20/20 in the left eye and 20/15 in the right eye. The vision in the right eye is crystal clear but left is cloudy and not as clear. My left eye is extremely dry after I wake up from taking a nap or sleep. I am applying eye drops before I go to bed. Any idea on whats going on with my right eye?

Welcome kiddhan625
I think you will find this forum very helpful as I have. Have you asked your doctor about this? I had a similar situation after my PRK 17 days ago & was told to try Genteal drops which are available over the counter at the drugstore. I would consult your doctor before trying anything on your own but in my case the drops helped. I take them before bed and it helps with morning dry eye. Keep posting as far as your progress as I have in this forum. It is a help to others contemplating Lasik or PRK. Good Luck

I'm four months out and still have to use Genteal gel at night. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I'll get up and put more in. From what I've read, what you are experiencing is very common, especially at only one week out.

Check out www.dryeyezone.org it's a great resource.

Just had my 1 month check up! Doctor said everything looks good. I was a -4.75 with a .25 astigmatism. I am no a +.25 in both eyes with slight astigmatism. I can see 20/15 with both eyes and 20/15 in the right & 20/20 in the left. I have noticed more floaters in the left eye but the doctor dilated and the retina looks fine. She said just have to suck it up and live with it. Halos are no as obvious but she said it can take up to 6 months for the halos/starburst to disappear. She said the best thing you an do is lubricate like no tomorrow! The more lubrication the better for the eyes.

>>> The more lubrication the better for the eyes.

Just an aside, and to lighten up the forum, it's good for other things too :P

One thing I am noticing is more floaters in my left eye! It is actually quit annoying. Anyone else have this issue? Will they final settle in the coming months?
