Q&A: Do I have an option if an enhancement done to improve my distance in one eye was over done?

Question:

I had Lasik for monovision done 18 months ago and an enhancement done on my right eye for slightly better distance vision, but was over corrected so that I have lost clarity of vision from 10 inches to about ten feet. They said that there is not enough tissue to correct this. Do I have any other options as now I must wear glasses much of the time otherwise, I get headaches from eye strain. Contacts are no longer comfortable.
