I really thought I would have more to write about this time regarding recovery from my iLasik enhancement procedure. But, as it turns out (so far anyway), there is a lot less to say. In fact, this whole experience has been a cake walk compared to the first time around (which aside from the vision regression, wasn’t really that bad).
My surgery was 3 days ago and I’ve had no redness, no discomfort at all past the first day, and that was minimal, and my vision is still crisp. I haven’t even felt like my eyes have been dry like the first time around. I’ll still be on a massive regimen of eye drops for the next week at least, but if all is going as well as it seems to be I should be able to taper some of that after my next follow up (next Tuesday).
Honestly, my biggest hurdle has been that I’ve caught myself on a few different occasions going to rub my eyes – that is a big no no for the next few weeks. Since there is no scratchiness or discomfort, the only reminder I really have that I just had surgery is the series of reminders I have on my phone telling me it’s time for one of the eye drops.
Technically, last night was the last night I *had* to sleep with the goggles, but I think I’m going to sleep with them on for at least the next 2 or 3 nights, just to be safe.
One thing I haven’t actually done is test out my night vision. I’ll try to get out after dark at some point this week. I expect that I’ll see the halos around all the lights for the next few months, but as long as I can see, I can live with that. The halos should lessen with time.
