I had LASIK done on February 16 and wanted to post a one month update to let you all know how I’m progressing. When I last posted, I talked about the day of surgery and the day after and now I’m one month post LASIK. The days after my surgery was a bit hard because my eyes were so different each day or at different times of the day. I was having a constant headache and all I wanted to do was sleep. I was worried that it was going to stay this way, but after about 4 days the headaches went away and I was able to return my daily activities.
During my two week check up, I was still seeing 20/20 which is amazing. Now, at one month out I am enjoying my life glasses free. My vision is still not as sharp as I’d like it to be and the doctor said it could take up to three months. However, if at three months it’s still not as sharp, I’d opt to get an enhancement done because I want my vision to be clear and sharp. The doctor told me that I’d more than likely need to get an enhancement done before I even had the first surgery so it’s not a surprise. My prescription was -7.50 which is pretty bad for someone my age and so I appreciate him telling me upfront.
Do I regret having LASIK? Absolutely not! If someone asked me today if I would recommend it, I would definitely say yes! Even though I had headaches the first few days and my vision is still not as sharp as I’d like it to be, I can see without glasses for the first time since I was in the 3rd grade! It’s amazing waking up and not having to put on glasses. There are so many things that I enjoy now that I don’t wear glasses.
Have you had LASIK done or ever considered it?
