Vision correction

Your prescription prior to LASIK is high and therefore it may take your eyes longer to fully heal.  Your surgeon is correct in saying that it may take up to six months for your eyes to fully heal and for vision to stabilize.  It is possible that since your prescription was so high, you still have some residual prescription left over.  Your surgeon may consider an enhancement at around four to six months.  In the meantime if your vision is very blurry, you can consider wearing glasses.
