You likely have some residual prescription or dry eye.
Try using frequent artificial tears and an enhancement for any residual prescription once stable postop.

In brief: Presbyopia

If you are over the age of 45 and had lasik to improve your distance vision, you are likely experiencing presbyopia.
This natural change ultimately affects everyone and qill require you to wear reading glasses despite having excellent distance vision. Monovision lasik can focus one of your eyes for reading while keeping the other for distance. If you are under 40, see your surgeon about a touchup.
