    the first problem when i see far things especially small fonts i see them but with little blurred i feel that the right eye is the one made the confused and blurry things . the second problem with the left eye which made for far sight i can't see the near thing as before the surgary it is difficult for me now .

    i have no headache thank god but i have itchy eyes close the corners i am using wet drops right now . i am very mad from the doctor cause he didn't give me a trial contact before making my decision

    Did you wear monovision contacts prior? I ask because it's unusual to find someone with the near vision in the right eye. They usually have it in the left eye with contacts and cataract removals so I find that odd. If you wore mono contacts this way before then it should have worked.

    no i didn't wear any contacts he didn't tell me to wear any contact which i am so angry i didn't read about this surgery . is it bad thing to have the right eye for near vision ? what is the different to have the near vision in the left or the right ?

    *my right eyes before the surgery was weak and i depend on the left eye most of the time . also he told me that i have lazy eye ( the right one )

    is there any solution for my case or i will like this forever ?

    Well, the lazy eye could be the cause. Most people are right eye dominant, thus why the reading lens usually goes in the left eye and the distance one in the right. And he wouldn't have told you before the surgery to wear contacts. I was just asking if you had. So did you have Lasik or cataract surgery? I'm sort of confused about that.

    i had Lasik surgery .

    after your post i feel more afraid if the doctor messed with my eyes or made a mistake . FYI , i decide to make the surgery after i made more search about this doctor and he is one of the best doctors in my country . the last visit he told me to do enhancement next visit in the left eye but i am not sure i don't want to make another mistake plz i need advice .

    is there a huge difference between the distance vision in both eyes require enhancement or wearing a glasses here :

    <R> -0.25 CYL -0.25 AX 127
    S.E -0.38

    <L> +1.25 CYL -0.50 AX 132
    S.E +1.00

    I don't know much about Lasik but it would appear you need corrective glasses with that prescription.

    I'm sorry. THe last time I inquired about Lasik, near vision correction was not possible. So I had no idea that it was now. I know they can do the monovision with cataract surgery so hence my response.
