ICL Month 3 / PRK Month 6: Less Dry Eye

I had another follow up appointment a couple of weeks ago, and haven't updated yet because there isn't much to report. I was taking allergy medications since April--trying out a few different kinds--which made my dry eye in my right (PRK) eye unbearable. So I stopped taking everything and have tried to stay inside to avoid dry eye from allergies. It's been working pretty well, my dryness has gotten much better and I'm only using preservative-free drops a few times a day now, instead of every hour or two.

My vision is good when I use both of my eyes together. My ICL still has a high vault but it isn't causing any inflammation or issues. When I look out of just my right (PRK) eye I still can't read street signs or see far very clearly even though I can read the 20/20 line with the eye. My right eye just sucks because of the cataract, so I'm not hopeful that it will get any better as the eye finishes healing.

My next appointment is in three months. I can't believe it's been more than 6 months since I had PRK!
