I recently realized that the halos and red spots are gone. They disappared quite awhile ago, but they faded slowly, so I didn't even notice. There's still some dryness. At my last exam, which was on 2008-01-02, the doctor said to keep using eye drops 4 times a day until the next exam, because they're still healing and because they heal better without dryness. At this point, the dryness is infrequent and minor enough I probably wouldn't bother with eye drops if he hadn't told me to. It takes up to 6 months to fully heal. My next exam is on 2008-04-02.
