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.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
