overcorrection and new astigmatism

Postby lboogie » Sun Feb 17, 2008 2:03 am

Okay, so I see 2 separate doctors next week. Here is the deal -- I am currently overcorrected to +.6 in each eye. I am 29 years old. I also have new astigmatism on my left on a new axis.

My vision is clear sharp. No blurring. BUT I have continuted, intermittment headache - like a sharp pinching between my eyes. I am also seem to be having some convergence/fusion issues -- can't keep focus on an object with depth behind it.

Would either the mild overcorrection and/or the non-blurring astigmatism cause the headaches and convergence issues?

And will I continue to become more and more hyperopic?

Thanks for listening.

I seem to have the same problem although in one eye only
after surface ablation (PRK) procedure. I am overcorrected to +0.75 with
+0.5 of astigmatism . I do get headache if i try to read for a while .
I believe you cannot become more hyperopic once healing
process is over normally 6 months . Also hyperopic treatment is difficult as
compared to myopic and not as accurate . What I have read in some post is that doctors don't usually attempt enhancement less than 1 dipoter .
