Hi Chris: are you willing to disclose the name of the centre where you had your surgery? I'm planning to have surgery and I'd like to make sure I don't end up with the same problem.
: I recently had Lasik surgery on my eyes in Canada. I have got to say that the results I have right now are not what I expected. I was hoping for the miracle of sight, but instead I am having trouble seeing close up and far away. My vision is blurry and I have to wear "cheaters" drive and to see the computer. When I left the clinic my eyes were 20/70 and after one week they were 20/100! This was not what I expected. I have called the clinic many times and what I have been told is that my eyes were overcorrected and that this will go away. Probably after the first month my eyes will have healed and corrected themselves. I have been told also that it is better not to have had 20/20 vision right off the bat because many times your eyes regress to the point that you have to go back and have an enhancement. Has anyone experienced what I am going through, how are your eyes now! Thanks Chris
