"Morning Eyes"

Postby Atlanta123 » Mon Jun 29, 2009 2:21 pm

When I wake up and for a few hours my eyes are blurry. They tend to get more focused after that. I am 2 weeks post lasik and .5 and .75 overcorrected. Does anyone know what would cause this?

It is common for there to be a tear imbalance overnight. Notify your doctor and ask if a gel lubricant before going to bed would be appropriate. You may also want to read about dry eyes after Lasik treatment.

Thanks Glenn. As a follow up: The doctor said if I didn't naturally resolve he would do an enhancement for my overcorrection at 3 month. I am now Rt +.75 and Lt +.25 and he was hoping for Rt at plano or +.25 and Lt -.75 to help with Presypobia. Is it still possible to enhance to get to that goal?

Thanks for the support. Great forum!

Whether or not it is possible, or reasonable, to enhance will depend upon the exact nature of your situation when you reach that 3-6 month postop point, and depending upon the opinion of your surgeon.

Thanks. I understand a lot depends on situation and the doctor's opinion at that time.

My real question was just one of a technical nature-when overcorrected from being myopic, is it possible for an Rx to be corrected back down to plano or slightly under?
