I posted this back on December 13.
I just had my CXL done on December 5 and I'm experiencing a lot of blurriness (now December 13). I definitely cannot drive and I'm wondering how long it might be before I am able to. I'm also finding it difficult to use my cellphone - did everyone else have the blurred effect for both near and far vision? I'm glad to read this is fairly normal for CXL patients, I was getting worried for a little here. I'm on holidays for the next two weeks, so I hope I am able to return to regular work in the new year.
Let me know!"
I had both of my eyes done at the same time. I had blurred vision from the surgery (Dec. 5) right through Christmas. Hang in there, my vision is pretty much back to the way it was pre-surgery. I have times where my vision is blurry for an hour or so, but it is not even comparable to the way it was in December. I can drive, work, and function normally now. I can't tell if my vision has improved at all yet, I will be going for a post-operative appointment in March to see what my prescription is like.
If you have any concerns at any time, go to an optometrist or ophthalmologist - they know better than anyone.
Take it easy, those first few weeks are the toughest.
