It has been three years since I had my Lasik procedure. I had the procedure done on July 24, 2014. I recently went in for a regular eye exam.

It has been nearly one year since I had my Lasik procedure done on July 24, 2014. Last week I had the final follow up to my Lasik eye surgery. It went smoothly.

Yesterday was the 6-month follow up for my eyes.
Basically, my eyes are better. They are not perfect, but they are better. They are not quite as dry (unless is that time of the month) as they were at 6 months. The plugs did not help.

Today was my three month post-Lasik procedure follow up appointment with my eye doctor. My eyes are doing ok. Over the last few weeks my eyes have been very dry. I even moved this appointment up a few days, as I was scheduled to see the doctor next week.
My eyes are still seeing at 20/20. This is a good thing. Dr. Midson said that if my eyes were going to need a “touch up” it would have occurred in these first few months.

My eyes have been feeling so much better, until this past week. My eyes started to feel dry again. It turns out women’s hormones can greatly affect the eyes and cause dry eye, or re-occurrence of dry eye, especially if you have had Lasik.
