Doctor:Are you there?
Doctor:Can you name the eye drops prescribed to you?
Doctor:If your doctor has advised you to stop the drops, you can stop it as advised,
User:after lasik treatment my left eye is so shrp but my right eye is less sharp compre the left eye why its common or is ther any issue
User:drops name is systance ultra
Doctor:Those seems to be eye lubricants, you can stop it as advised by your doctor.
Doctor:If you find there is some difference in the vision, the reasons for it
Doctor:can only be given by the doctor who operated it.
Doctor:Perhaps your visual acuity on both sides were grossly different and the doctor may not have corrected the left eye error completely.
Doctor:This is only my assumption.
User:after lasik treatment my left eye is so sharp but my right eye is less sharp compre the left eye why its common or is ther any issue .....but some friends told me left eye always sharp but right eye less sharp is it true
Doctor:What the problem is can only be known by your treating surgeon.
Doctor:Your friends comments may not be entirely true.
Doctor:You need to ask your treating surgeon if what you have is normal or abnormal.
User:but some toime am getting headache and eye pain of left side eye
Doctor:Without an opportunity to examine your eyes, it would be extremely difficult for me to provide an answer to this question.
Doctor:May I know how long ago did you get this LASIK done?
User:i did surgery in vasan eye care they told and they checked up its normal
User:past 2 months
Doctor:Did you inform about this vision changes, eye pain and headache with the doctor during the follow up?
User:how long we shouldnot wash eye after lasik surgery
User:yeah i informed to docotor he told put eye drops and take siebelline tablet 10 mg daily night for 1 month
Doctor:Please continue this medication for a month before you try and look for reasons for the pain.
Doctor:This pain may be related to eye surgery or due to other reasons.
User:how long we shouldnot wash eye after lasik surgery
Doctor:And as far as eye washing is concerned, most patients are advised to follow normal routine within 2 weeks after surgery.
Doctor:You can talk to your treating doctor and resume normal activities.
Doctor:including eye wash.
Doctor:Have you followed?
User:yes ....i have to talk to doctor
Doctor:yes, the surgeon who operated on you and is following up will be the right person to answer your specific questions.
Doctor:Do you have any other questions?
User:this power will be permanent or it will be vary in future plz help me
User:now power is 0.25
Doctor:LASIK surgery does not guarantee a permanent cure.
User:why and how
Doctor:The procedure only corrects your current refractory error.
Doctor:But it doesn't protect you against future refractory error problems.
Doctor:It is a fix to your current problem only.
