Peripheral vision is worse than central vision. Even mildly dim light setting is horrible. I guess some may call it glare and double vision. I just can't see anything sharp and it's like I am always guessing my way around rather than seeing my way around. Halo is a given but that's tolerable.

Roger wrote:I consulted another eye doctor and he said this could be high order aberration and having another surgery is the only option, which I am very hesistant.
Roger wrote:I only read more about the different equipments now and do wonder if MEL 80 was not as advanced and some other machines capable of wavefront customized lasik like Zyoptix will be better.
Roger wrote:I also read that Mel 80 is capable of "optimized wavefront". How does this really compare to customized wavefront and is there any way I can tell if the doctor used the optimized technology but not the standard conventional lasik?

Roger wrote:If I am to do an enhancement, what should I look out for then? What technology is needed?
Enhancement surgery is virtually the same as initial surgery except a new Lasik flap will not be needed (lift existing flap) and the doctor knows better how your eye responds to laser treatment. You need to evaluate enhancement surgery just as you would initial surgery
LasikExpert wrote:It appears that your vision problems relate to undercorrecton and residual astigmatism. Once these two are resolved, your vision quality should improve.
Although Lasik knowledge and technology are quite advanced, it is impossible to predict with absolute certainty what an individual's corneas are going to do. This is why even appropriate treatment plans do not provided the desired result 100% of the time. An advantage of enhancement surgery is that the desired changes are usually quite small, so the trauma of surgery is less severe, and the doctor better knows how your individual corenas react to surgery.
LasikExpert wrote:Enhancement surgery can resolve residual or induced refractive error including astigmatism, may expand the treatment zone, and may make more regular an irregular cornea. If glasses improve vision and reduce starbursts, then enhancement surgery is likely appropriate. If contact lenses improve vision more than glasses, then enhancment surgery may be appropriate. Your surgeon should be able to advise you of what symptoms are likely to be improved with enhancement surgery.

Roger wrote:My measurement is only very slight short-sightedness and astigmatism on left eye, what can I wear for the right eye?
