Halos at Night
As you were told, night vision symptoms typically improve with time. However, if it has not improved after several months, you should get reevaluated by your surgeon. Frequently, treatable conditions such as residual refractive error, ocular surface problems, or other conditions may cause your symptoms. If needed, an enhancement to your primary procedure is certainly a possibility.

you are going to need to use alphagan drops to see if this is pupil-size relatedif they help, then it is, and you have 2 options:
1. if your symptoms aren't that bad or frequent, just use alphagan when you drive a car at night
2. if your symptoms are very frequent and bad you will need a WIDE ZONE HD LASEK ON TOP OF THE PRIOR LASIK FLAP + INTRAOP MMC TO PREVENT SCARRING
