One month Epi-Lasik, LASEK update

Postby tintin » Fri Feb 23, 2007 5:01 pm

I posted a few weeks ago about my complications from Epi-Lasik and LASEK.

Now here's my one month post-op update:

Yesterday afternoon I headed over to the [eye center] once again to check on the progress of my eyes. The funny thing is that you need to tell them how you see for them to tell you how you see. I digress.

I've been back at work for a few weeks now and it's been ok. Some dry eye and I'm definitely pooped out by the end of the day.

The appointment went well. I'm now seeing with about -0.5 in both eyes and if I recall correctly, the tech said that it was about 20/25. Not too shabby, but not good enough for me yet. I have some persistent double vision in my right eye that he said was likely due to uneven healing of my epithelium. Basically my eyelid will fix that by blinking to make it even again.

My next appointment is in another month when they expect I'll be pretty much at 0.0.

It's an amazing feeling and I'm quite proud of myself, although I had nothing to do with the quality of my own vision, to be able to see the charts. I'm even more excited for next month's visit now with their expectation that I will continue to improve.

Note: This post was edited to remove the name of a clinic.
