I had LASIK one year ago. The first couple weeks after the surgery, there were some mornings when I could hardly read the newspaper. Things close up and far away were blurred, which was pretty scary, but then things would improve during the day. I think it had a lot to do with the initial dryness. I used lots of drops, and that helped a lot. Now my vision is 20/15 in both eyes. It was a total success.
It's still pretty early in your recovery. Your eyes need to adjust and heal. Use your drops and don't panic. If things are not going well, be sure to see your doctor.
