My right eye has -.25, ten days after a lasik operation

I'm 31 years old, My R was -2.75 and my L was -2 based on my Surgeon tests. However, i was wearing a glass with R= -3 and L= -2.25. (actually, i'm not sure which is the correct size i just trust the surgeon because he made the recent tests).

Day one after the lasik operation, The L eye was clear and the R was blurry and a little dry. After 3 days the Surgeon said, it's a normal dryness and the flap is Ok, and the blurriness because your left eye is stronger than your right eye and it's a brain issue and may improve later. 10 days later,i don't have serious dryness and i can say i still use Systane Ultra just to follow the Surgeon procedure. However, the R still blurry and i feel tired on front of my laptop. So i went to another clinic the device report was R (S=0, C=-0.25, A= 73), L (S=0, C=0, A= empty) , VD: 12, CYL:MIX, PD=59mm and the "C letter test" was 6/6 for both eyes. The Dr said fine and -0.25 is very normal and too early to consider it as a correct measure.

PS: i have a photoGray plano glass makes me feel much better in front of my laptop or any room with florescent light.

1- Do you think the right eye is undercorrected?, how to make sure?
2- Could the photoGray glass harm my eye? or i can use it normally
3- Any further advises?

thanks in advance

1. No you are not under corrected. You got a second opinion and they found a virtually spherical cornea.
2. No photogray glasses will not damage your eyes.
3. Be patient you're on the way to a great result.

a spherical cornea has no astigmatism and they found no refractive error (those numbers you wrote out indicate no need for any glass RX.
