Problem after Lasik Surgery

Posted , 3 users are following.

Respected Sir / Madam,

I have undergone Lasik Surgery about 10 months back and now I have few problems.

My Eye number were:

Right Eye: -8 and cylindrical 2

Left Eye: -6 and Cylindrical 1

After surgery my vision was restored i.e I could clearly see all things quite clearly without my specs. But the vision in my Right Eye soon started to blur. And the situation is like I can hardly make out things with my Left Eye closed.

I contacted my surgeon, but he said it will heal gradually.

Can you please help me out on this ?

    What country did you have this procedure in?

    After 10 months, I think you need to return to the surgeon and ask him to define 'gradually'

      Was this done to correct short sightedness?

      I know of the wife of one of my colleagues here in the UK, who had this procedure and, as a result, developed a cataract, which then had to be dealt with, so she ended up having to wear glasses, which was what she was trying to eliminate.

      I don't know the health system in India but I think you may well need to see an Ophthalmologist in your Health Service because you don't appear to be getting anywhere with the Lasik people.

      In the UK, we would go to our GP, who would then refer us to the hospital eye clinic, where we would be seen by an Ophthalmologist and it would go on from there.  Do you have a similar system in India?

      Nope we don't have any such system in India.

      I directly went to the surgeon, he had some test done on me and then advised me to go for Lasik Surgery since my Cornea was weak or else I would be recommended the simple Laser surgery.

      The Surgery was done to correct the far sightedness and not short sightedness.

      Is it possible that the eye number might come back after surgery ?

    It's not normal, it should set after around a month. You should see your surgeon
