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. However, my eyes appear to be getting better, on their own, over time.

She will check my vision again … [Read more...] about Post-Lasik: Day 30 (One Month After Follow-Up Visit w/ Doctor Q and A)
Post-Lasik: When Can You Wear Eye Makeup?
One of the things they tell you in the Lasik after care instructions is to avoid wearing makeup for the first month or two.
