I had my six month post op appointment yesterday. On the visual acuity test, I tested 20/20 in both eyes and with both eyes open I could read the 20/15 line without difficulty. In fact, they didn’t test my eyes individually at 20/15, but I believe I could have easily passed. Incredible results – I was actually surprised since my last check-up, several months ago, had me testing at 20/25.
My night vision is crystal clear without halos or other distortions. I haven’t had any other complications like dry eye or floaters. Overall the results are better than I could have imagined. Strangely, I still have intense pain when I get an eyelash stuck on the ablated area of the cornea. My surgeon explained that this is due to the epithelium and it may take up to a year to heal thoroughly. Its a minor issue and I’d say the surgery was worth it.
I have another appointment in 6-months to mark the 1-year check-up. My vision has been stable for three months, and I don’t expect that to change.
