Hi - I just had wavefront five days ago. My surgeon and his tech were good at putting me at ease. It was quick and only minor pain. I felt pressure and a little discomfort from the suction on the eyeball and the speculum, but not bad. I could feel the corneal flap being cut but it was more sensation than pain.

I did not get up out of the chair seeing well. Things were blurry. I did not realize the extent of post-op. Most people think ( myself included) you get out of the chair, see great, go back to work and it's wonderful. NOT TRUE. I had no idea how long the recovery is and I was not prepared for the emotional changes. I am a pretty tough guy, well-adjusted, and a strong faith in God. I've been hit pretty hard psychologically by this .

The hourly drops are easy but the constant procedure is exhausting. Not being able to see well is wearing me down. I have halos and double vision in my left eye.

Now, the doc says I will get better and he says the surgery went fine - but bottom line- I can't do my job well and I've tried a dozen pair of readers to function - none good. I can't look at a computer screen long at all.

I'm told a lot of my problem is that I am 51. I was told that AFTER the surgery, not before.

So- be prepared for the possibility of a significant recovery and some emotional challenge. It's major surgery for sure.

I'll come back as a I progress and one day I'll let you ,know if it was worth it - now is not a good time for to answer that! LOL.

Best wishes.
