Seven days ago, I scratched my eye while working in the garden. (Now I will always uses protective lenses of course.) The corneal abrasion was “central” in front of the pupil and I have blurry vision identical to what I used to have with astigmatism (before cataract surgery when I had implanted a toric lens.) No pain any longer, and I am using Thealoz Duo lubricating drops during the day and Thealoz Duo gel at night. ( I did have an antibiotic treatment for 3 days as well.)
1/ If after a good while, perhaps a month or so, I am still experiencing this astigmatism-like blurred vision, am I correct in thinking that most likely the cornea is permanently scarred? 2/ Is it possible or probable that LASIK or LASEK surgery could effectively deal with the change (scarring) in the cornea and correct the blurriness?
Thank you in advance, Dr Kagan.
