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.
The eye doctor did one last “tear production” check and checked my vision. I am pretty much 20/20 in both eyes.
I also placed the order for reading glasses. In order to compensate for both reading and computer, I went with +.75. These glasses are much better than the ones you can get in the drugstore since the centering of them matches with your natural eye focus. The ones in the store may not align properly. I can actually tell the difference.
My eyes are much better now. It took approximately nine months for them to really recover and start feeling “normal.” Maybe it took longer for the recovery since I am no longer “a youth” or it could be because of female hormones. Either way, it was a long road.
I am glad I had the procedure done. It has been wonderful to be able to see distance without glasses.
- My eyes are less dry now. I put drops in when I get up and before I go to bed.
- Bright light is not as bad on my eyes. We no longer close the shades in the house. I can step outside on most days without sunglasses. I still wear them when it is really sunny and bright, even if only stepping outside for a few minutes.
- I still carry a water spritzer bottle to spritz my eyes as needed.
- That “time of the month” my eyes are very dry, similar to the first few months after the procedure.
