lasik n icl

hi
i am a 22 year old indian girl (medical student). a high myopic by birth. i underwent lasik surgery in my right eye on 5th april'14 (power 12-14) n got an icl done on my left eye on 7th april'14 (power 19-20). i had been wearing specs for 18 years before the surgery. post surgery, i have been experiencing some blurred visions from my left eye n headaches on working on phone or laptop or reading for a long time. i want to know whether should i get tested for power of my eyes again for this? (i consulted my dr n he says that since my eyes have been so weak, they cant b perfectly cured) are these headaches stress related or because of the weakness of my eye? i can read n write n watch tv normally, but if strained for a long time, i feel headache building up at the back of my head. i m very much worried about these issues which werent there when i used to wear specs :(
please help

You may be overcorrected in the left eye.  Read about hyperopia symptom since you are a medical student.

Hi Darshana,
I am not sure what might be causing your headache as I am not a medical professional but just wanted to let you know one of my fellow coworker got icl implant last yr and had similar symptoms and they were gone in 4-5 wks.
Wish you good luck in recovery.
