Overcorrected Enhancement Questions

Postby PRK_EYES » Mon Sep 21, 2009 2:10 am

Just curious, are you happy with your enhancement for overcorrection.

I asked because I am going to get one in a month for +1.0

Just had my +1.0 ,+1.75 correction done two days ago.

Surgery went very well. Eyes still sored and scratchy.
I can't read the screen too well. but the control + key works good
to increase the screen size.

Still taking the usual, zymar, acular, fml 3 times a day.
Taking some antivan, try to avoid tetracaine. (takes away the scratchness)

Mention to my doctor on overcorrection, he said he would reduce the
correction by 25 percentage to compensate further overcorrection.

May be a litter early, but looks good for now

Regression after a hyperopic (farsighted, longsighted) correction is common. Most doctors will adjust the correction a bit to accommodate an overcorrection. It would be reasonable to expect changes for the first few months with the final result at about six months postop.

Just updated on my enhancement.

So far on the last week of steriod is very good.
Next week, will off steriod totally.

Vision still sharp and clear.
I only noticed my floater from the computer screen
with the white background, still have double ghosting on
traffic light.
Didn't notice any overcorrection or undercorrection problem.

Starburst or halo is just like before enhancement.
Maybe overcorrection only burn a donut area not the central area.

Still have problem with those bimmer Xeon head lights,
they are so bright and blinding, kind of hard to avoid.

Night vision actually is better than before to my surprise.
I am able to see the detail of the traffic light, say green light,
I can see the individual mesh that emits the light.

Light glare can be a consequence of your steroid treatment. Hopefully this will resolve after you are tapered off the steroids.
