Carly, good luck with your consult. If you are a candidate and you decide to get the surgery, you will not regret it. I don't miss my contacts or glasses one bit. No more dry red eyes from contacts, no more accidently ripping a contact or knocking it out. No more glasses getting foggy in the rain or cold. No more knocking my glasses off the night stand and having to crawl around looking for them. And best of all, I can open my eyes under the water, yeah.

I'm thinking if I am a candidate (which I think I am b/c I had a consult like 10 years ago) then I'll schedule it for July which is our new fiscal year. SUPER excited!
And yeah Cindy, the price for Herzig has come down in recent years. I'm still conflicted about wanting to get it done NOW! Logically, I know I should wait, but it's so hard to wait... I figure that as long as we're on track with our saving goals for the wedding, then I can revisit the topic in July.

I'm super excited because my fiance and I just agreed that I can get lasik before the wedding and so I may as well do sooner rather than later! So I'm gonna try to set up a consult very soon.
I've had glasses since I was around 8 years old, so the idea of waking up able to see just blows me away.
One question: my eyes are pretty light sensitive now, did any of you with sensitive eyes before the surgery have a lot of problems with that afterward?

Well, I've booked a consultation for Friday! I'm so excited! But now I'm starting to get nervous that they'll tell me that I'm not a good candidate.... Eeeeek... Just got to wait and see!
