Laser eye surgery comments:
Most people see at20/20 almost immediately but some it takes longer. It can take up to a year for your eyes to adjust and most people have at least some fluctuations in that year. But most people have nearly perfect vision right away.
You'll need to wear your glasses (leave your contacts out) for two weeks prior to surgery (that's the FDA recommended waiting time for soft contact wearers -- it's longer for people with hard contacts of toric or RPG lenses). This is necessary because your contact lenses change the shape of your eye; you want your eyes to get back to normal before they start up that laser, otherwise they'd be doing surgery on a surface that's still changing!
A competent Lasik place should warn you and prepare you before your surgery. After mine, I had to put drops in them all the time because they were very dry. I couldn't open my eyes for 6 hours after the surgery so they could begin healing. I used rewetting drops they suggested for at least 3 months afterwards. And I do have a few problems at night with driving. The lights have tiny little halos and make it harder to drive (but I deal), and the red lights at the movie theater floor blind me (someone has to lead me down the steps after the movie). But overall i was super happy with the results and love it!!
