LASIK - Day 1

MichaelClayton2007Visited the doctor in the morning. Was able to read the 20/20 line - but it was a little blurry. At this point it is expected. The first doctor's appointment after the LASIK procedure is to check for the health of the flap (make sure it hasn't shifted, folded, etc while sleeping).

I am able to drive around - though in the sun - my eyes hurt a bit - and I need my sun-glasses. I was able to watch TV and actually watched Michael Clayton - without any issues (Hi-Def without glasses finally looks like Hi-Def - and the movie was awesome).

Eye's feel dry - and I have to keep putting artificial tears into my eyes in addition to a couple of other eye drops (a steroid and an anti-biotic). The dryness of the eye is again an expected side-effect at this point. My wife had dry eyes after her LASIK for about 2 to 3 months after her procedure and is no longer an issue for her.
