It is common to have good vision the day after a LASIK procedures, but dryness may limit vision. I suggest that the frequent use of artificial tears should help your vision and talk to your surgeon if vision is not excellent at a week.

Healing from LASIK
Reading vision correction
the time course for recovery for reading vision depends on many factors
your initial rx and if you were plus or minus to begin with
if you had incisional surgery or noncutting--the latter is safer but recovery time is longer
how much mono was attempted
preexisting dry eyes
your brain getting used to it
please dont evaluate your reading eye at distance which makes no sense but pts do it
