Just wondering how everyone's eyes are doing? [Feb. 20th, 2009|09:28 am]
And now we can see...


It has been 4 years since I had my LASIK operation, and I'm still seeing as well as ever. I'm just a point away from perfect, and my yearly eye exams have been constant since (incidentally, I'm also a T1 diabetic for those who have forgotten).

Hows everyone else's eyes doing?

I'm three years post-op. I've had lots of dramas with my eyes since I had the lasik (ingrown epithelials, major eye infections, scarring to name a few) but I think they've settled. I have severe dry eye and have to put anti-inflammatory eye drops in every day and still use three different types of eye lubricants several times a day.

Despite all the drama and complications, if I had the time over again I would still have the surgery. My eyesight isn't quite perfect, and the prescription in my left eye changes slightly every time I have my eyes tested - but I can see!

I ended up getting glasses made up for reading, computer work and watching TV, but at least I don't have to wear them all the time.
