Hello! I want a detailed answer regarding my eyes/vision. I had lasik
at 26 and had 20/15 vision after the procedure (-4.5R/5.25L) before the surgery. I am now 31 and have developed some slight myopia
( right - .25, left -.50, astigmatism (R -.25 (12) L -.25(11) ). One thing I have always noticed both before lasik and even now is though when corrected I achieve very good vision, my left eye always seems a bit blurry when looking out of them separately (at a distance). At times I feel that up close with my corrective lens
on it is the reverse and my left is slightly clearer. I mean could this just be due to them being 2 separate organs and maybe my right eye has a higher visual acuity then my left eye at a distance? In addition even without my glasses
I can read things that my wife can't at a distance. We had her vision checked thinking it must be myopia and she tested 20/20 or better. I use Similasan drops frequently throughout the day (even though I don't really suffer from dryness
) as a protective measure. I work long hours in the computer - probably 12 or more a day. I have anti-glare and good (i assume) coatings on my glasses. I asked my own optometrist
if I should be worried about the excessive time on a computer, and he said as long as I am using drops and resting my eyes every 20-30 minutes (which i do by getting up and walking around) it should have no effect on my vision, as my issues are related to the length of my eyeball. Even though my prescription is weak - I have always been extremely sensitive to the difference in both eyes. I know it sounds absurd, but I can tell when they are different by more than - .25 (does something to my overall perception). If you could give some of your generous time to answer my question I would really appreciate it. Some things I do are lubricate, rest muscles, where my glasses which are anti glare etc(and i prefer the best vision i can get as without them even though slight i am sensitive to the difference) and have recently changed to lights in my working areas that mimic daylight. Could you summarize and give me a detailed answer as I am actually OCD (diagnosed) and I obsess about this for some reason. I felt that coming here and getting a detailed answer from an Ophthalmologist
might be more enlightening then at the Optometrist. Please feel free to ask me any additional questions.
