Hi,

The light sensitivity for me was only an issue for a few weeks. The dry eyes, however, lasted for months. I just had my 9 month post op appointment today and my vision is better than 20/20 and my eyes are very comfortable and rarely bother me. But for the first 3 or 4 months I had dry eyes to the point where they were uncomfortable. But I think my result so far has been fantasic and I don't regret it at all and feel it was worth every penny!!!
