I'm now 20/20 though it does fade in and out a bit - it's sort of like wearing dry contacts at this point. I described the procedure as what happens after you're abducted by aliens (funny noises, flashing lights, a bit of fear) and then the pain after is like when you have an eyelash stuck in your eye and it hurts whether you open or close it.

I'm glad it went well! Brian had a different procedure done while he was enlisted, he was pretty miserable and high on pain killers for a few days.

Yay! I'm glad it worked for you.

I had PRK on my left eye when I was 14. It was a specialized thing for kids with vision problems who could be helped by the procedure, so my experience is probably really different. I found the first day pretty uncomfortable when the drugs wore off, but it improved my good eyes vision which is boasty. I think they had to do it in this weird specific way as my eye had been forked around with before. Oh! And I didn't have to worry about keeping my eyes open cause I was under general. Oh! and the gubbmint covered it, which is splendid.

almost 3 weeks post op and my eyes and i are almost totally normal. sometimes they fuzz up a bit and I have trouble telling lasik fuzz from a migraine aura, and when i open my eyes after showering i'm briefly afraid i lifted the flap (not possible at this point), and some days i don't even need eye drops (but i do a few anyway to be safe). it's an amazing relief not to deal with contacts or glasses and i quite love it. LOVE. totally worth the brief freaky surgery and the 6 hours of discomfort after if one can swing it cash wise.

So happy it all went well!

I am still too scared and the words "lift the flap" really didn't help :)

well you can't tell :D it never ever hurt and i was only freaked because i wanted a hand to hold (will was with livi) and they tell you to sleep through the first 5-6 hours (hence the valium which was a fail for me).

"Lift the flap" gave me the heebie-jeebies too - and I've had the procedure! It's totally *not* a big thing - and if that makes you put off getting it done, you'll kick yourself when you do get around to it. And when I had mine done, they didn't require me to sleep for 5 hours or anything like that. I had to rest in a dimly lit room for half an hour while they did the next patient, then I had an eye test, then I got the train home.
