Laser Eye Surgery - anyone's experiences?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had Lasik? i had it about 3 weeks ago and was wondering if any of you had it and if so, what kind of after effects you had?

My eyes have been getting tired really quickly from adjusting, especially on the PC and in the car at night.

The doctors say this is all normal and takes some time to go away but it is always comforting when someone else is / has gone through something similar!

Thanks!

I had it almost 5 years ago now ... went from almost legally blind w/o glasses to 20/15 after the surgery --- and my eyes are still that good.

 

However, driving at night means more halos for me now ... and if it's raining -- forget about it. I also get eye strain from lots of time in front of the computer (this darn forum isn't helping!!!) ... but other than those small things ... I am ssssooo glad I had it done and can't imagine still wearing contacts/glasses.

I haven't had it, but I want to so bad!!! I'm just trying to convince the husband why it would be a good idea. He's all worried something will happen.

I had it about a year ago and my eyes were really, really dry for about 6 weeks and I saw "halos" around lights at night. Are you using Systane eyedrops all the timehuh.gif (At about the 6 week mark, all my symptoms were gone and have never come back, btw)

I'm getting lasik next Friday and am so excited! But the Dr. mentioned that depending upon what type of lasik you have (meaning all lasers, or some cutting with a machine, etc) effects the amount of healing time you need, especially night vision.

For example, she said that people who have ungone lasik using the laser now to actually make the flap take longer to heal and experience more night vision issues like halos and stars than those that use the sliding machine-thingy to make the flap.

I'm going laser all the way, b/c I'm scared to death of the machine that looks like a lawn mower go over my eyeball, so I'm anticipating having at least 3 weeks of night vision effects until they heal fully.

Keep us posted, so I can see how you progress!

I am doing this befoe the wedding, but haven't booked it yet. I have the paperwork, but haven't actually done it. It was either this or laser hair removal. I told Matt I want one now and one after we are married and I am so looking forward to being on our honeymoon and not having to rollover and put my glasses on!!!! Keep up updated on the progress!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
