before lasek -5.25 and -5.50 , post lasek right after surgery -.25 and -.75, and 2 weeks after that i was -.125 and -1.75 and now about three months out i can tell i need new glasses again , vision with glasses is blurry at distance and without glasses the tv is not as clear as it was earlier on. anyway ia m going to have my enhancement this month or next, i was just wondering, if this amount of regression is normal, because it seems like i should not have regressed that much as what i did and i know it is worse than 1.25 and 1.75 now just not sure how much worse, i have not been taking the restasis religously like i was before, i am just worried if i have it agian i still wont be fixed... and my doctor did tell me at my 3 week follow up that my eye was already healed and that that is why he gives people the prednisone drops is to slow the healing down, but i thought the prednisone would make the eyes heal faster....

I had LASEK at the end of July, and I too have experienced some regression. Currently, I have only noticed regression in my left eye. My right eye seems to be doing great, but I have a feeling it is only a matter of time..

I know that with higher prescriptions, regression is quite normal, but I'm not sure to what degree. I think it is better to wait as long as possible before getting an enhancement though. (As in, make sure that your eyes have fully regressed before doing a touch-up).

Good luck though!
