Hating Glasses -

just wanted to also say you should be fine, but it is freaky, i mean it is your eyes. My one eye is still a little fuzzy and i kinda got a headache, but things that i've read that are normal after the surgery. I've had mine done now since the 12th and todays the 17th and today i am having a bad day...but i think its because its snowy out and we were driving around and my eye got irritated from squinting because i didnt have my sun glasses w/ me. LIke I said i got anxiety, and i start flipping out, thinking the worst hehe. its only going on my 5th day, and they said it can take 6-8 weeks to heal...I just get worried they under corrected the eye and I'll need the surgery for a touch again. because my right eyes like its brand new. its amazing. But like i've read, any side effects are usually fixable.

Just make sure and let us know how it goes! I know the day after iwas able to come home and get on the computer still, but dont over do it, as it strains your eyes i do most bright lights/tv type things. I got V8 juice too, since carrots are suppose to be good for your eyes, figured maybe help the healing process :)

Cya! and just come home and take a nice nap :) what I did after, and woke up seeing haha.
I have pretty bad anxiety as well. I am fairly calm today given the fact that in less than 24 hours, I should be done with my procedure. My biggest issues are with whatever objects they need to use in, on or around my eyes to keep them open. It is this whole freaky thing with me. I hate to have my eyes touched. My doctor offers Valium which I am planning on taking. I think I might be a mess if I don't and I would hate for him to have to say no to my operation due to me being a shaky wreck on the table. So, I am hoping that the Valium works as well as everyone says it does. The one poster that said that the device his doc used to hold his eyes open hurt is freaking me out. My biggest fear is pain of my eye lids. Can you imagine. I can pretty much deal with the slicing of my cornea and the laser. It is the whole eyelids being messed with thing that I am having a hard time getting over. How crazy am I? Hehe! Anyway, I just want it done and over with. I look forward to this time tomorrow because I should actually be on my way out of the door if not already home and resting by this time tomorrow. I can't wait. And, believe me, it has been a long week since the exam and a longer 2+ weeks since my final decision to actually have it done. I always said "Absolutely not" when the procedure first came out and even up to a year ago. Then, over the past year I have gotten more and more sick of my glasses and the little help in my eyesight that they are. So, it has only been over the past year that I have really been ready to do it.
Thanks again for all of your kind words. I hope you are feeling well and seeing better today. Get some Advil migraine for those headaches. They are a God Send!
Once again! Good advice and calming words. I know I need to just relax and think "It will all be over soon". One of the nurses said that the suction thing is only on each eye for 5 seconds and that my doctor will count it down. So, to prepare, I have been holding my eye lid open, not blinking and even holding a finger on my eye for 5 seconds to get used to it! Heheh! Am I a freak or what? Anyway, it is the longer eyelid holding thing during the laser that is freaking me out most I think. I really am trying to get over the fact that that one will be on for several seconds up to a minute. Ugh! That one scares the junk out of me. I'll get over it...hopefully!
