I would just like to post my experience so far post ReLex SMILE. I had this procedure performed 9 days ago. I had moderate myopia, with corrected visual acuity of approximately 6/3 both eyes. Following surgery I have taken my eye drops religiously. Day 1 post-op I had 6/5 vision in right eye, and 6/6 vision in left eye. There was a lot of foggy vision. Since then, my visual acuity has decreased, and fogginess persists, but has improved slightly. I have daily headaches from straining my eyes trying to read things. I saw my optometrist for a review, and I was told that I have -0.05 of astigmatism in my left eye. No need for refractive correction. My vision was blurry partly because of the astigmatism, and partly because of spottiness of the cornea. I was shown a photo of what my corneas looked like. They were not completely clear but had little spots, which I was told was just the healing process, but honestly I have no idea what they are. I also have some oedema (swelling) of the left cornea. I have been trying to hydrate my eyes as much as possible to help with the healing process.
I am posting this because I am worried that the fogginess won't go away, as this is the main reason that I can't read things. I am not sure why fogginess occurs at all. It is quite disabling not being able to read easily. One reason I struggle is because my left eye will be blurry, then it will clear up and my right eye will be blurry, and the pattern continues. I'm sure that confuses my brain and makes my eyes strain more. Any comments will be welcomed, and I will continue to post my progress.
