How long after custom Lasik will my vision improve?

mimi asked:

I had my custom lasik done friday and today my vision is still blurry. Of course It’s alot better, but still blurry. For example, right now that I’m on the computer the letters are really blurry. I;m just wondering if maybe it takes longer with lasik? Any experience? i don’t see my doctor for another two weeks…so just asking those who has had it?

    Really, it is an individual thing and really has a lot to you with where you were and what ind of procedures you had done. It is not the same for everyone. You had better ask your doctor these things as they would be more apt to be able to answer it for you.

    Upon completion of LASIK eye surgery, the nerve impulses that trigger your lacrimal gland to produce tears may be interrupted, causing dry eye. This is considered a normal reaction to the procedure, so it isn’t unexpected. Remember to relieve any such discomfort with artificial tear drops. Use the artificial tears as often as needed – besides making you feel better, they also hasten the healing process.

    The first thing to expect after eye surgery is that your vision may be blurred. This blurring usually begins to resolve itself and goes away normally within a week or so.

    In very rare cases, your eye may develop an infection. However, most doctors prescribe an antibiotic to be used frequently during the first week or two after eye surgery, so be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions. If for some reason you do develop an infection, consult your doctor right away.

    Although you can expect a sudden improvement immediately after eye surgery, you will also notice that your vision will continue to further improve over time. It can actually take up to six months for your new vision to reach its full potential.

    In almost all cases, undesirable after effects are minimized with LASIK eye surgery. Follow your doctor’s instructions and you’ll be fast on the road to problem free recovery.
