I Had my LASEK on 11-06-13. Is It Safe to Go for Offshore Duty? Still Have Slight Blurry Vision and Itchy Feeling in my Eye.

I get a feeling of something in my eye if I concentrate on a point for few moments. Although my vision has become 6/6 in eye test, but I'm not able to read the objects clearly which are at a distance. I get an itchy sensation near my eyes atleast 4-5 times a day after lasek. IS it normal.
