Thank you for your response, I was very happy.
I guess it was my expectation that's causing disappointment, because some of my friends who took lasik surgery were able to see clearly after 1-2 weeks.
My surgeon told me the day after the surgery that my brain is still adapting to the new eyes, My flap was fine no problem whatsoever.
After 1 week, the doctor said my vision is improving (which I also noticed it's about 15% better). He said 1st week is very unstable, my vision will fluctuate from time to time. He also advises me to reduce my drops from every 3hrs to 4 times/day.
I never had severe dry eyes and my near vision is very good (both eyes open) I can read small prints. The far vision is the one bothering me, during my 1st and 2nd week it's very difficult to read street names, car plate numbers etc.,
I can't even recognize clearly the person standing 10-15 meters away from me specially on poor light condition and driving during night time is very hard also because the light coming from the cars hurt my eyes.
One day I was very curious I tried using my wife's eyeglass and it was very clear on far distance! I removed it quickly because it feels like the eyeglass is very strong for my eyes and never did it again.
Today I'm 3 weeks and 2 days, things are better now about 30-40% better with both eyes open (still fluctuating). I notice when I cover my right eye it was OK on both near and far for me left eye, it's my right eye that's giving me blurriness specially on far distance.
I'm using Systane Ultra 400 for eye drops and flax-seed oil as supplement. Is it good?
My prescription before surgery was 400/450 with high astigmatism. 2nd day after surgery the auto refractor machine says 20/30 and after 1 week it says I'm 80/100 though I can see better compare the 2nd day? Now I'm confused.
I'm 30 years old and very active, I love trail running and hiking that's the reason I had lasik surgery to have more freedom. My work is 80% computer. I also noticed that during weekends my eyes feels better because I don't use computer.
To illustrate better this is what I see at far distance on my right eye when my left eye is cover.
I also notice that whenever I'm cooking the warm steam makes my eye a bit clearer.
I hope my eyes will become stable soon, I want to do lots of outdoor activities however I'm not confident at this point.
Some questions for you guys:
1)Have you experienced itchiness on your eyes?
2)How would I know if I'm over or under corrected. I know it's early for me to tell.
3)Do you have tips in order for my eyes to heal/recover faster? or just leave it alone?
Once again thank you and more power to visionsurgeryrehab.com.
