What is the difference in my before and after prescription??

Glenn, I was talking to an optician. I showed him my before and post op prescriptions. He said there was not much difference. I got the impression that the lasik did not change much. Here is my prescription that I would use if I were getting glasses before lasik:-2.75+3.50X104, OS -1.50+1.75 X 081. my manifest refraction is OD -2.50+3.50x100, OS -.50 + 1.50x 85. Did they change me much. I really don't understand this part. Thanks!

In your right eye there is virtually no difference in refractive error. The difference is within normal fluctuation. In your left eye there is a reduction of myopia (nearsighted, shortsighted) vision, but almost no difference in your astigmatism.

Glenn, So are you saying that they basically did not correct me much? Is this a bit unusual? I Have my 1month on Tuesday. What should I ask? Thank you.
