Laser Eye Surgery - anyone's experiences?

Recommended Posts

I should also say that 8 outta 10 turn out great! I would just be scared to death that I would be one of those two who turned out terribly.

CARLY!! CONGRATS!!!!

 

I am so happy for you!

 

My entire family has gotten lasik and they are loving life. It is so much easier to be active, esp for skiing and windsurfing.

 

I guess the "paraopt" as she said above is that there are risks to all surgeries, but for well over the majority of people are completely fine and change their lives for the better! I am sure people who have poor eyesight have to weight the risks to decide on lasik but for my active family and friends who have done it, it has been a very freeing experience.

 

YIPPIE so happy for you!

Car i'm glad everything went so great. I love my Lasik and i have never regretted getting it done for one second, not even the seconds it took me to write the check to pay it off. lol

Thanks, Erika! I'm super excited about it and only know one person that isn't 100% happy, but she's like 55 and is upset she needs reading glasses when that's part of the deal. And really, I don't mind that I'll need reading glasses in the future b/c the point is that I don't need contacts/glasses daily now!

 

ETA: Hahahaa, D, I hear that! Luckily I'm doing it thru my pre-tax expense account, so it's coming right out of my paycheck each month and (hopefully) I'll barely miss the money!

Congrats Carly! Glad it was a good experience for you. I'm still considering it, but waiting until September/October to see how my finances are.

This totally made me lol. I know people still joke about Canadians living in Igloos, etc. but our doctors are just fine thank you very much. In fact, Canadian doctors and nurses are recruited to the US all the time.

I am 4 years post surgery and everything is perfect. I'll take reading glasses in 10 years over my legally blind status before the surgery anyday.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
