You first had LASIK for -6.50. You were slightly under corrected by -0.75.
Then you had LASEK for the under correction. LASEK is not LASIK. LASEK is another name for PRK.
PRK treatment may take longer to stabilize than a LASIK retreatment.
You will have to be patient and follow your surgeons instructions.
If he advises you to take anti-inflammatory drops, make sure you take them.
if your eyes are dry, you would be best having treatment such as wetting drops, restasis drops, evening ointment, and maybe lacrimal plugging of your tear ducts.
