Laser eye surgery comments:
I had Lasik eye surgery with very good results. When you go in for the initial consultation they will test your eyes to determine if you are a surgery candidate.
I just had Lasik surgery about 3 weeks ago. I see so clearly now. It's great!!!! They give you a valium about 30 minutes before the procedure and they put numbing drops in your eyes too. It doesn't hurt, but it's a little uncomfortable. I was more nervous than anything else, but all went well. The only part I didn't care for much was when the doctor put the speculum on my eyes to make my eyelids expand and also so I couldn't blink. That was probably the most "pain" I felt. After it was all done, my eyes were and still are very sensitive to light. They're also dry, so I have to use drops. They said it was "normal"
I work for a LASIK and cataract surgeon so I feel I can give you some advise.
Well, you need to decide for yourself whether you think the risks outweigh the benefits. Don't be swayed by what people (even me) tell you is "right." It's good to be a little cautious. Your doctor will want to make sure that you are aware of all the risks before you do it. (I had to sign a waiver.)
