LASIK update 22 days post-op:
Left eye now - absolutely perfect
Right eye now - still ghosting but I noticed last night that it was equal in strength to the left (it had been weaker, more dim, and very ghosted with double vision for several days). Yesterday during work on the computer, even though it was still weaker and ghosted it didn't seem as bad as the week prior. Another observation from last night is that the ghosting has changed angle. Initially it always showed a ghosted double vision to the lower left. Last night the ghosted area was directly above the actual image. It's about a quarter of the image overlaid and about 30 percent of the strength of the actual image. I'm going to work up a little diagram to illustrate what I mean by ghosted and how it has changed. I think the change is for the better and a sign that it is on the heal. :)
This only illustrates right now. I expect the right eye to worsen as the day progresses and clear up after a good night of sleep ... but it seems there has been a great improvement since last week so I'm hanging in there with a great positive outlook. Patience! I hate patience, lol.
