Make sure to bundle up in your parka and carefully watch out for wolves, moose and baby seals out on the tundra. I hear they can be bitches this time of year.

I got it done just over a year ago and have been so happy with it. I healed up really well but lately (like the last 3 months) my eyes have been REALLY dry... I'm attributing it to the summer sun and my new job which involves me looking at a computer screen all day...

if you're indoor w/ac that can really dry your eyes out too

Thanks, Mo!

 

And thanks for the tip about gel eyedrops. I heard that before, but completely forgot, so once I'm all healed up, I'll be purchasing some of those bad boys.

Glad to hear you're healing well! The gel drops are amazing when it comes to that extra dryness....but they make your vision a little blurry at first, that's why they say to use them right before bed so you don't have to worry about the blurriness!

Carly I'm so glad your experience was great! I'm still debating about getting this done...I really want to, but I just feel like our money needs to go to other places right now. You made me feel so much better about the pain/uncomfort though...good to know it's not that bad. Enjoy your new eyes!

 

LOL Rachel, you're too funny :)

I am soooo getting this done next year no matter what DH says/thinks.

 

The only part that freaks me out is that I'm weird about things coming too close to my eye (reason why I don't do contacts). My dr. haaates me when I get my eye exam because he and his assistant literally have to hold me down and pry my eyes open. I'm really bad. So I'm just worried that I will somehow move my eye or something and screw it up. I know they tape/force your eye to stay open, but from your experience Carly, do you think my little problem would interfere at all with the procedure?

Not at all, Jess. They do the numbing drops in your eyes, which I had trouble keeping my eyes open for that too. I'm ok with contacts, but drops are really hard for me.

 

Anyway, I would say that you won't have a problem b/c since you can't "feel" any of it, it's not that hard. It almost feels like your watching this stuff happen right in front of your eye, not TO your eye.

 

Also, there's no way you can close your eye during the procedure, they have this contraption that they put inside your eye in the top and bottom (after they tape your lashes up and down) and that holds your eye open. There were times were I really wanted to close my eyes, but you just can't. Don't get me wrong, the sensation is insane and freaky, but 3 days later, I am really loving it. My eyes are just about healed in the scratchiness and I can see perfectly.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
