Not a bad outcome: All depends on how you are seeing and if you are happy with the quality of the vision. With this refraction you could be 20/20.

Great LASIK outcome: Rather than looking at your postoperative refraction, the question to ask is if you can see. The prescription of +0.50-0.50 is an insignificant and many with that will have 20/15 vision or better. Stop worrying and enjoy your great vision!
