Had LASIK done in left eye over a year ago and vision is still blurry at times or is going in and out of focus. Is that normal?

Blurry vision in left eye

Intermittent blurry vision is something I prepare patients for within the first 30 days after their LASIK procedure.  LASIK isn't perfect, but this isn't an effect we expect.  I'd get an eye exam.  You may have some other factors like dryness that effect the clarity.  Remember that dryness can be hormonal and seasonal- which can cause the fluctuation.
