So after about 15 years of wearing glasses, I decided to get Lasik, which took place Friday. I am happy to report that I now have 20/15 vision without glasses The whole thing was surprisingly painless (felt a little like I was being abducted by aliens though...dark room, lots of equipment, strange objects getting waved in front of my eyes...).
Now for the long, difficult process of getting my brain to stop going "I should put my glasses back on" every 5 minutes...
I'm curious: did you have wave-front analysis, and flap created by Laser ? One, or both eyes ?
"So long as … social condemnation, which, in the face of civilization, artificially creates hells on earth, and complicates divine destiny, with human fatality … so long as three problems of the age: degradation of man by poverty; ruin of women by starvation; dwarfing of childhood by physical and spiritual night: are not solved: so long as social asphyxia shall be possible … so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, books like this cannot be useless." Victor Hugo, "Les Misérables," 1862
I considered popping the lenses out of mine, just to see how long I could wear them until people realized I didn't need them...
But at least I'm still at the point where I have to wear sunglasses when I go outside, so if I'm out and I try to adjust my glasses I don't look silly because I'm actually wearing some...(my first pair of real sunglasses too, only owned glasses with transition lenses previously).
It's an amazing procedure to experience for sure and results are typically as good as yours. But get ready for reading glasses when you get into your '50s or '60s. The surgery can't do anything about that.
My wife had this done about 7 years ago after wearing glasses since she was 8 years old. Her greatest triumph though is that now when we are out swimming in the lake and a boat passes by with all the boaters waving at us, she knows who is waving at us.
