I had lasik surgery about 9 years ago now. I remember having dry eye symptoms and light sensitivity immediately after. My vision was pretty good at this point. After about 3 months along with dry eyes still, i noticed a verticle downward streaking of light from car headlights at night as i blinked. Over the next few months this became more noticeable off all light sources both day and night along with the usual glare and starbursts off light sources. The streak can be from the top to the bottom of my vision. I was treated for dry eyes quite aggressively and although this improved comfort, it made no difference to the other issues. Over the years i have seen a number of doctors, had dilated eye exams, topography, wavefront analysis all which come back normal. Irregular astigmatism came back within normal range with small amount of verticle coma. I can cope with most the issues but the light streaking when blinking is something i cant get used too and nothing any doctor can understand or advise on. I have exhaused most avenues but know a few people on here have had similar issues but seems to be without any success of treating.
I really feel like it is being caused by my eyelid or eyelid muscles causing it. I feel a tightness whilst blinking, alot of my blinks are only partial. I think it could possibly be tension of the upper eyelid causing a prismatic effect of the cornea when blinking. I notice my eyes blur alot especially when i use any eyedrops too as if they are not being spread properly over my cornea maybe due to this. Any help or input would be appreciated. Would you recommend seeing an ocuplastic surgeon or neuro ophthalmologist to suggest my ideas too as everything is coming back normal in regards to what the corneal doctors are seeing. Thanks. Paul
