6 Weeks and vision got blurry, was excellent after surgery

Postby rbdog » Fri Jan 09, 2009 5:45 pm

I am at 8 weeks (surgery on November 14, 2008).

I was very impressed from day 1 with excellent vision. right around the 6th week, my left eye got blurry. Then my right eye did the same. Immediately after eye drops, my vision clears up for about 30 seconds.

Since the beggining, I have been told I still have swelling. I go in for an almost weekly check-up now. I am on Pret-Forte and Restasis.

My vision is fine within 8-10 feet. Beyond that, it is workable but blurry. For example, I can see safe to drive but cannot read road signs until i get within 20 feet or so. Also, I see fine when looking from the corners of my eye.

Am I being impatient? when should I ask to see the surgeon (my office uses regular doctors for exam, not the surgeon).

I am starting to get concerend.

I hope someone can answer you, I know how panicky you might feel. I'm blurry now. I never HAVE seen clear since my lasik on the 15th of January.

Waiting to be able to see ...........

It turns out I was kept on steroids for too long. It caused high pressure and blurriness. i have been taken off it for almost a week and my vision is improving. I was told I still need to wait a month to get back into the normal healing process.
My vision is dramatically improved but still not what it was after surgery.
