Thanks Elyse and BE.....maybe getting one eye done at at time is the trick. Even though I had very little discomfort (I am back at work today), I don't think I would have wanted both eyes done together. In fact, I don't think my doc will even do that. My eye is extremely watery, maybe that's a blessing. I'm sitting here at work with my sunglasses on because it helps with the monitor and flourescent lights. Wow, it really makes a difference!

Last night threw me for a loop because all of a sudden, when the Russian skater (gold medal guy) was doing his thing, my eye started hurting bad enough to where I had to pull my upper lid off of it. I think the figure skating had me to fixated to the screen and my bandaid lens dried on me. I should have been blinking more. I dropped some wetting solution in it and eventually it loosened up. I don't think it was centered when it dried so my cornea was exposed which is why it was so painful. Damn.....gotta quit staring at the TV!

I just hope my second eye goes as well as the first. I'm not sure why you (Elyse) are in so much pain from this. That has me kind of worried. I guess as long as the eyes are improving, it might be worth it in the long run, but that seems like an awful lot of discomfort. Has it eased up at all since the procedure? They did tell me that pain levels are different in everyone and that some do experience "pain" with it. That's always nice to hear when you are trying to decide if you want this done or not.

There is another health board that you might try. You can actually interact with lasik doctors. It's: [url][/url]
Maybe you can chat with them and see what they think. I don't know how the response times are because I've only read the chats, I haven't chatted on that BB. Give it a try and let me know what they say. I can't imagine going through what you are, but I guess I could with my second eye.

I have a wedding to go to tonight, so this will be a long day for my eyes, but at least I'll be away from the TV screen! It sucks not being able to wear makeup, but my eye would water it all off anyway.....

You both have a good weekend! :cool:
