A comlicated questio: Please speak to your laser vision surgeon about your options. There may be special glasses or contact lenses you can use to help. Good luck!

Post LASIK vision: Vision after lasik is typically excellent. If you don't have all of the vision that you would like to have, it would be appropriate to talk with your surgeon about a potential enhancement. It is possible to test well on the vision chart and still benefit with an enhancement depending on the amount of higher order aberrations.

Enhancement: Dim vision post-lasik is often due to residual refractive error so you may need an enhancement. Go see your lasik surgeon.

Yes, possibly!: This could be due to diabetes. Also retinopathy, macular degeneration, and many other things. You need to get this checked out by an ophthalmologist and pronto!
