Six months after my epi-lasik surgery, I requested for a thorough eye test including an eye dilation test as my doctor wanted to discharge me but I could tell that my left eye vision is still blurry. During the eye test, my left eye could not read some of the letters, unlike my right eye. I thought that it proves that there is still some residual degree in my left eye but my doctor said that there is no remaining degree in any of my eyes.
Is it possible to have perfect eyesight but blurry vision? My doctor has once commented that my left eye has rather high astigmatism so I’m wondering if the astigmatism has not been fully corrected.
I regret to hear that your results may not have been what you expected.
Often times, it is possible to have a difference of 0.25D to 0.50D (25 to 50 degrees) between 2 eyes following a successful LASIK surgery. Usually each eye at this level is still able to see very well without glasses.
Should you feel that your vision is “blurry”, it would be best to find out from your surgeon the results of the chart reading and the post-operative refraction results.
Only by having the afore-mentioned data would you be able to objectively quantify the level of your vision and tell you what type of refractive error (e.g. myopia or astigmatism) may still be present.
