Last month I made an update on Youtube regarding my PRK/Laser eye surgery. I got the first surgery done on 12th of Dec 2013 and the follow-up surgery for my left eye was done in March this year (2016). The reason for the follow-up surgery was to remove the scarring in the eyes that occurred after the initial surgery. After a lot of waiting and treatment with different eye drops over the course of 2 years, we finally did the first touch up surgery to correct the “haze” in the eyes that caused blurry vision.
I have made a follow up video where I talk about the next steps, and what we intend to do onwards in the process of solving the issues. My next surgery for my right eye would be scheduled for the beginning of next year and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the outcome will be just as good as the left eye. Check out the video below if you’re interested in the current situation and how it’s going. Subscribe to my channel over at Youtube if you’re interested in knowing when I upload a new video. Write to me over at Youtube or down below in the comments if you have a question or asking for advice, I’m happy to answer and give my opinion since this is a topic close to me.
I have made several videos on my LASEK (No Cut) eye surgery experience over at YouTube if you are interested in checking them out. I had initially thought I’d just do a few and then everything would be normal and healed, but I ran into complications. I got haze (scar tissue) in my eyes and it made my vision a bit blurry and not so sharp. I am according to tests passing a driver’s license vision but I can’t really read signs off a distance. It’s a tricky problem and it’s been 2 years and almost 5 months post the first surgery.
5 weeks ago I did a follow up touch up surgery of my left eye to try to remove the haze and it’s been healing up well. I have days when I get worried that my vision is slightly blurry again, but I believe it has mostly to do with dryness at the moment. Keeping my fingers crossed that it’s going to be successful.
If you want to check out my latest video on the LASEK (No Cut) surgery experience, you can take a look at it below. I have received so many questions and concerns over these 2 ½ years and I am amazed over the caring comments I’ve gotten from all over the world. I can’t tell anyone if you should go through with your surgery or not, I am only here to tell you my experience. I haven’t even reflected on whether I regret my surgery or not, there’s really no point in thinking about the past. I made the decision in all good thoughts and in a way the result is better than having to pop in contacts every day and getting tired/dried eyes at the end of the day so I had to use glasses. I don’t miss my glasses at all, since I had such a bad eye sight prior to the surgery. It’s such a luxury to wake up and be able to see the time and look at my phone without looking for my glasses first. I have tried looking at the bright side after all these complications, it’s hard some days, but most days I’m grateful that it’s not worse than it is right now.

Thanks for watching and let me know if you have any questions, concerns or if you want my advice.
Peace and Love,
I have another update in video form regarding my LASEK eye surgery, this was filmed 2 weeks after the surgery. I will make another update video soon, but only when I have something different to tell than this one. It’s still a bit foggy to read text off a screen and similar tasks, so I’m awaiting the day when it all changes to the better.
Peace and Love,
