Yesterday I had my Lasik surgery and everything went very well. I had to listen to the doctor and keep my eyes closed and at rest most of the time. I took a nap for four hours after the surgery. At first, the eyes felt a stinging sensation. It was rather uncomfortable but after I woke up, the sensation was pretty much gone. I had to apply eye drops every hour.
This morning I had my vision checked. Both eyes are at 20/20. They didn’t push any farther. Although when the coordinator left the room, I tried myself. I could also read 20/15 now. The only thing is that now I’m on the computer, I still have astigmatism like symptoms. The doctor said that is normal. It will take a few more weeks before that clears up. At this point, my vision will fluctuate from time to time. That is just the normal recovery process. My vision will continue to improve. I should get my best vision in maybe 6 weeks.
I’m eager to take a walk outside tonight to see how my eyes respond to night lights. That’s something I had trouble with even with glasses. Before the surgery, my eyes were at about 20/400.
