Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


i had lasik back in december '06. they started off giving me a valium to lessen my anxiety, but i'm not sure it really worked, because i was TERRIFIED (i just had this crazy irrational fear of going blind!!!). they put drops in my eyes to numb them, and other stuff, but my left eye felt different from my right one. i told the nurse, and she said it was normal and not to worry about it.... but it freaked me out!!! i was certain that my left eye wasn't numbed enough!!! so they take me into the actual room where the surgery would take place, and i got on the table and they got me all ready for the surgery...

the procedure itself, was so fast! the only thing i really felt was tremendous pressure... it was uncomfortable, but not painful, and didn't last long at all. they talked me through then entire procedure and that was comforting. when it was all over, and i went to get up, i felt like i'd been hit by a truck!

i'd been so anxious about my left eye and how i thought it wasn't numb enough, that during the procedure, i'd tensed up every single muscle in my body so hard, i HURT when it was done! nothing a little 800mgs of ibuprofen couldn't knock out though!

so my vision before surgery was BAD - my contact lense prescription was -5 and -5.25. now my vision is 20/12.5 in each eye! it's awesome! i most definitely recommend it!!!

Cool! Tell me about good news! I'm glad it work well for you. My vision is now 20/15. Was it regular lasik or wavefront?
