Had wavefront bladeless lasik on 18/02. Progress check.

Postby mgear356 » Wed Feb 20, 2008 5:18 am

Hi everyone, I finally went for the surgery after reading all the wonder advices and experiences here.

I am 24 this year, living in singapore
Before the lasik, I was having -3.25 left and -3.5 right my myopia. No astigmatism. Didnt wear any contact lenses before and myopia got stable at the age of 21. Doctor also have the same myopia records.

After treatment, my left is 6/6, razor sharp. However my right is 6/7.5 after first review. It's slightly blurry. This has been the condition right after surgery till now. No improvements.

I got some questions to ask.

1) I understand that it needs healing for my eyes to get perfect vision. But is there any chance that my right eye was under corrected?

2) I have problems looking at my LCD monitor and my eyes get tired easily. I understand is got to do with relearn the focusing. Can anyone share thier inputs on this issue. As in when did it get better for the focus?

3) For the past 2 days, my eyes would feel dry after sleeping half-way for like 4-5hrs. Common?

Overall i am pretty happy with my lasik results and thank you everyone for reading this post.

It is only two days out.

1. Your right eye could be experiencing some edema which will cause poor vision until the swelling goes down. It is too soon to tell or worry about but there is always the chance that you are "under corrected."

2. I experienced ghosting looking at red LED lights. Most of it has gone now (somewhere between week 3 and 4) but I still see multiple images of red stop lights at night.

3. Dry eye at night is very common in the beginning, if you wake just pop a drop in each eye and go back to sleep.

Good luck and have patience.
Walt

It took my left eye a couple of weeks for the swelling (edema) to go down and no it is not visible to the naked eye with out proper lamp and experience of what to look for. What I mean is my doc saw it during his exam.

Good Luck

After the swelling went down the quality of my vision improved greatly but I started out with both eyes at -2.5 and ended up overcorrected. My left eye is +1.25 (20/50) and my right eye is +1 (20/40.) I will be having both eyes retreated in 2-4 weeks.
