In Reply to: Lasik side-effects (permanent or temporary ?) posted by Schwart Dan on December 13, 2000 at 09:26:37:

My vision was fine off the bat,but I did have problems with halos for a couple of weeks. I also had double vision when looking at numbers on screens for about two weeks. I knew the baseball score of 66-33 was wrong. But I'm an ICU nurse and had to be careful of the numbers on the monitors.

I ended up with an enhancement on my right (dominant) eye 6 months after my initial surgery and it drastically improved my distance vision. I occasionally have glare problems when watching soccer games at night - some of the lights on some of the fields really bother me, but driving at night is not a problem.

Keep in touch with your doc, and give it some time. It does get better.

: People who've had LASIK read on:

: I've had LASIK 8 days ago and so far it seems like a bad decision
: (that means I'm scared like shit)
: I think my vision (theoretically) improved but I can't be sure because of all the side-effects. My vision is blurred at close distances and I can only read with great effort. Long distance vision is better except
: I can't read signs I used to be able to read with glasses on. It's like my vision is perfect except I can't "focus" on anything, and everything "glows" around the edges, as if there was a light source behind it. At night all this is substancially worse because of the
: starburst effect around lights. If all this is permanent I'm majorly screwed, but if not, how much time do these things last before they go away ? (btw: the surgeon claims that the procedure succeeded completely and that physically there's nothing wrong with my eyes)
