    Surgeon mixed up prescription - now Over correction?

    Hi All

    I had Lasik 12 days ago after and Unfortunately my results have been less satisfactory and i guess Iím just looking for some advice :-)

    My prescription before Lasik:

    Right: -0.75
    Left: -1.00

    Right: -3.00
    Left: - 2.75

    Next day I was told i was legal to drive (in the UK i believe that made 20:40 - not even sure). But vision was not great and had horribly bad dry eyes.

    Dry eye but has improved greatly this week (my 2nd week) once I have put the drops in my vision improves slightly but my distance vision still isnít good.

    Found the prescription that was programmed in to the machine (print out given after surgery) and looks like my surgeon got my prescription the wrong way round.

    Right: 1.00
    Left: 0.75

    Right: 3.00
    Left: 2.75

    I wanted to ask if anyone would know what the ramifications of this would be? A small over correction and small under correction in each eye? I have a follow up on Saturday and will be asking the optometrist about this.

    Even with this error made by the surgeon my sight should be better then what it is now. The sharpness isnít there and my distance vision is blurry making me believe that I still have an astigmatism left over.
