Double vision after lasik
Surgery was performed. I had PRK in December, and after a period of healing, I began to experience monocular double vision. I’m not sure when this started. I went to my eye doctor, who informed me that I was still in the healing process and that this was natural, and he scheduled me for another appointment in December for the first year after my surgery. I trust him, but I was also curious how natural this was. Some days, I don’t have it, some days it’s really minor, and then days like today where, at the correct distance, I can be seeing two variations of the same thing. It’s only visible on objects with rough lines, like words or smooth surface edges. It doesn’t affect my ability to drive, read, work, or do anything else, but it is distracting. When I squint, it goes away to some degree. I was just looking for some feedback and such. There is no pain or dryness in the eyes. Eye drops do not appear to be of any assistance. a total of 7 comments 75 percentsharesavehidereport Voted up This discussion has been closed. There are no new comments or votes that can be made.

I’m sure this has already been discussed. I don’t have any information about the magnitude of my pre-procedure astigmatism prior to surgery, but I had TPRK+CXL for keratoconus about 6 weeks ago. Prior to surgery, my left eye was significantly worse than my right eye in terms of astigmatism and keratoconus severity. After the surgery, my right eye has been doing exceptionally well, and my fixed vision on that side is now 20/25. However, in my left eye, I have intermittent ghosting/double vision that looks like this: https://imgur.com/oDWMUx6 oDWMUx6 oDWMUx6 oDWMUx6 oDWMUx To avoid dry eyes, I continue to use opthalmic Dexamethasone and Hylo-Gel, as well as Hydrasense Night Therapy. I was curious if anybody else who underwent this procedure had a similar experience and if things changed for you in the end. I spoke to the optometrist who does my Lasik follow-ups, and she didn’t seem too concerned. She claimed that repeat topography would be considered three months after surgery at the earliest. Should I press them to finish it sooner? 3 responses 75 percent upvoted by sharesavehidereport This discussion has been closed. There are no new comments or votes that can be made.

On a Thursday, I had mine done. Thursday night, I was in a good mood. Friday was excruciatingly painful. I was blind on Saturday and Sunday. I couldn’t believe it when I said I couldn’t see anything. Much in the way my eye’s skin recovered. It terrified me to death. I went in for a checkup on Monday. After that, I had double vision for three or four days and then it gradually improved. For almost a year, I had night halos. After about a year, I was fully healed. They assured me that this was natural and that it normally took around a year to get to the point where it would stay. There are good days and bad days in your life. It’s completely natural.
I agree with Rubiks. I had ghosting and double vision for about 3-4 months after the surgery, and I was terrified that I had messed myself up by having PRK, but about 4 months after the surgery, I reached NAMI and was good to go.
I was just curious because I had mine on December 17th and the double vision hasn’t improved much. I’m good when I wake up, and it progressively worsens until it’s manageable by the end of the day. Should it take this long for my eyes to get rid of the double vision?
Blurry vision 2 months after prk
According to a study published in the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, eyes treated with LASIK had a better quality of vision 1 month after surgery than eyes treated with PRK, but vision quality for both improved after the 1-month follow-up.
According to researchers, PRK eyes had slightly worse visibility at night, worse clarity during the day, worse changes in vision, and worse double vision or ghosting at the 1-month postoperative visit.
There were no major variations in subjective symptoms between the two eyes at the 3-, 6-, and 12-month follow-ups. There were no major changes in vision quality between LASIK and PRK treated eyes after a one-month follow-up.
