Blurred vision post lasik

Hi.. Had bladefree lasik on 4/23, went in the next morning for my post op check up and the flap on my left eye had 'moved'. My Dr. repositioned it and put on a contact lens as a bandaid...went back in last Monday and when he removed the contact said the flap was good and I had regained some of my vision. My question/comment is on dry eyes. It is like I have a "film" over my left eye now. I know they are dry and I am using Refresh drops every 15 minutes or so. The filmly sensation is new today and my vision just isn't what I think it should be. Could it be just that my eyes are dry?
I was a -8 in my right eye and -6 in my left with moderate astigmatism before the surgery.

Kinda feel like I am in the "why did I spend money to do this to myself.
I know patience is a virtue but guess maybe I don't have any.

Any insight from anyone who has 'been there' would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Blurred vision post lasik

I had my surgery done 2 weeks ago yesterday. I know exactly what you mean by the filmy sensation. Mine were like that for about 3 days and finally cleared out. I found using the refresh drops without the preservatives was the best thing for me. The other drops did not seem to last as long.
