I had lasik done 1 year ago.. Anyway now I have trouble seeing from far and close, like its a little blurry. The test showed astigmatism of 0.5 in my right eye. However when the Lasik doctor checked he told me that I have extreme dryness in my right eye, dry spots he said. He told me that dry eyes can look like an astigmatism because it can also blur vision for close and far, he started me on Restasis on the 17th of June. Can dry eyes really cause blurry vision, like it makes it hard to read and to see things from far.

That's great. I have extreme dry eyes and 90% of the time I don't feel it either.

When getting an eye exam sometimes doc will add drops to see how it changes.

Wow.. really? Have you found that they will sometimes say that you have an astigmatism but in reality they said its probably your dry eyes acting like it?

Ha ha your answering my question so no its not off topic. I tried something out. I used a contact they made me try very close to my prescription. When the contact was wet out of the solution and put into my eye I saw very clear well after my eye adjusted to the slight stronger prescription. However about 10 min later the contact dried out in my eyes and saw very blurry. When I would lubricate with drops it would go back to clear. Does that sound like a prescription problem with my eyes or dry eyes in your opinion?

It sounds like you have a dry eye problems - if drops do not work they put little plugs in your eye

I had lasik and have dry eyes, doc said to use Systane 3 times a day. And yes dry eye can cause blurry or slightly out of focus especially in arid areas. The Systane works well for me.
