Recently Had Lasik - Reading, PA

Friday, Feb 11 2011, I had Lasik surgery on both eyes. The surgery was painless and the recovery was painless.
The following day I had a follow up visit and the doc said everything was healing fine. I was not 20/20 and I had blurred vision. The rest of the weekend, there wasn't much improvement and I was non-functional thinking that I made a huge mistake.

I ended up calling the doctor in Sunday night because I was so upset,because I just needed some reassurance. He assured me that the surgery was a success and healing takes time.

Monday morning, I received a call from the doc office and his assistant explained to me that each person heals differently, and I am among the 10% that do not see immediate results, but will with time.

Today I have seen improvements and am 100% functional. My vision is clearing up for both far and near, although I am temporary wearing reading glasses until my eye completely adjust.

It was a rough weekend, but I am thinking positively that this will work out for the best.
Right now, I will have to mark my review as undecided but I have a feeling, it will be worth it.

Wasn't much improvement today. I am back to worrying. As of right now, I wish I wouldn't have had the Lasik surgery.

I did have a post-op yesterday and he continues to tell me that things are healing normally. He said time will heal.

My vision has improved since last week. Slowly, but have improved.
Still see halo's and star bursts, and eyes are still blurry, although a little less.
I have been reading articles and it appears that patience and time is what I need most right now.
I will remain optimistic for now.

July 24, 2011.

I had my follow-up eye exam with the surgeon and healing is going as planned. My vision improved from my last visit, and most side effects are gone. I still have dryness in the morning, but it has decreased.

At this point, my vision is the same as what it was with contacts/glasses, so I am satisfied. My healing took much longer than most people, and it was very scary for the first few months. The Dr was right, everyone heals differently.

My next appointment is in 6 months and will post a follow up.

It has been over a year now. My eyes have healed and my distance vision is great. I do need reading glasses for some smaller print but I don't mind.

Now that I am recovered, I am glad I had it done.
