    -1.00 astigmatism 10 days post op

    I had Wavefront Lasik 10 days ago.

    At my 4 day check up, I was told I still had -1.00 astigmatism in my right eye, but that it was early days & this could still improve.
    However, at my check-up today (Day 10) it's still the same. The optometrist said it might have settled, but there's a slim chance it still might improve.

    I'm really struggling as my right eye is my dominant eye. I know my brain might get used to it, or in 3 months I can consider/be considered for an enhancement... I'd really love to hear reassuring words of wisdom from anyone who's been in this sitution!

    Sarah, how is your vision now? I am on day 4 post-op Wavefront LASIK and I can tell my vision isn't what it should be. I have an appointment tomorrow and I expect the Dr will tell me it may still improve but I am wondering what you experience has been over the last couple of months. My right eye also seems to be worse. I was expecting to see better at this point but instead I am having a hard time reading signs, seeing the television, etc and have constant headaches. Hope to hear from you or others so I can realistically know what to expect.
