Laser Eye Surgery - anyone's experiences?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I am perfect!  I don't notice any night vision problems, no excessive dryness (I used eyedrops the first few days, but not in at least 2 weeks).  I do notice that my eyes will tend to feel dry when I'm tired, so sometimes at night they are a little dry, but I think that's normal.

 

Good luck on the 16th!  Make sure you take aspirin BEFORE your eyes start to hurt!  I ddn't and it was a big mistake!

Hi ladies,


I had my LASIK surgery on Thursday and everything went great!  The worst thing about the whole procedure was THINKING about it.  But the surgery went very smoothly, there was no pain, and I had no complications at all.  Right now I have to use drops every couple of hours, but I can see 20/20!!  I am soooooooo excited.  My eyes are still a little sensitive, but that is to be expected.
Anyways, I wanted give an update for anyone else who is thinking about it.  So far, I'd say it's definitely worth the money.

 

P.S. Thanks Cindy for the pre- and post-operative support!  :)

Just chiming in with my 2 cents...I had Lasik 4 years ago and it was the best money I've ever spent!  I was near-sighted in one eye and far-sighted in the other, plus I had an astigmatism and had worn glasses/contacts since I was 4.  So needless to say, I asked my eye doctor every year if I was a candidate cheesy.gif

 

I went to LaserVue in Montreal.  They were pheonomenal - the staff was great and the office state-of-the-art.  Within 5 minutes of the procedure being done, I could start to see the clock on the wall and within 4 hours I could see the TV from across the room.  The next morning I was declared 20-15 and sent on my way.

 

The actual procedure itself was an experience.  I was too excited to be freaked out about my eyeballs being sliced and diced.  But afterward, on the way back to the hotel, my poor eyes were burning so bad.  It felt like someone was rubbing sand in them.  And I was sensitive to light, even though they said I wouldn't be.  It lasted about an hour until I finally drifted off to sleep.  I was much better when I woke up.  I had to wear goofy plastic guards over my eyes at night for the next week and "avoid a blow to the head" (uh, yeah I tend to follow that rule of thumb at all times in my life!!)

 

The whole thing cost me (the procedure plus a years worth of follow up visits with my eye doc) what 10 years of contacts and solutions would cost.  So I figure if I have perfect vision for another 6 years, I'll at least have gotten my money's worth!

 

Anyone who is thinking about it.........DO IT!  You totally won't regret it!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
