It is WAY too early to worry, you just had a surgery, your eyes need time to heal. I had similar issues with night vision and mine seems to be getting better and I'm only 2.5 weeks post op.

You are going through EXACTLY what I did!! I had nightmares.

You are so early in the healing process!! Hang in there!

I know it sounds weird coming from me, who is having so much trouble, but I'm almost 4 weeks out from surgery. You are still early. Talk to your doctor maybe?

I'll tell you what they told me:

REST YOUR EYES as much as you can.

I agree with the others. I went through exactly what you are describing. I am one month out and things are starting to finally get better. Still have halos and starbursts, but they are starting to reduce, and my vision is fluctuating less. 1 week after surgery I would have paid what I paid for the surgery just to get my old vision back. It's a big adjustment, bigger than I, or a lot of other people, realized. Good luck. Chances are, you'll be just fine. The road is just a little bumpier than you thought it would be.

You are at a very early stage in your healing process.

I was a bit depressed, and disappointed when I first had my surgery.

The contacts that I had, have a blue tint in it, do help a bit.

thank you for your reassurance, i think itll give me some strength for some weeks to come,

ive been looking at glare reduction glasses, i think they work, or at least "think" so because when i put my old glasses back on they look a little sharper to me...hmm maybe just in my head all along...

doctor told me theres nothing i can do to get rid of the side effects...thats a bummer to hear, but at least everyone has been telling me to just wait it out just wait it out..

i guess thats what i can only do, is wait it out...
