I didn't post here because the first responders seemed more interested in picking a fight over my After further discussions with the surgeon, we decided to do IntraLASIK instead of PRK. The surgery was performed on 2/22 and I'm now 9 days post-op.

The surgery itself hurt like hell. I really thought it would not hurt as much as it did, but it was agony. If I didn't know any better, I'd say they might have forgotten to put the numbing drops in.

On the bright side, the surgery only took about 7 minutes so the hell didn't last long. My eyes were extremely light sensitive and gritty the evening after surgery; I could barely keep them open more than a couple of seconds at a time. It was not easy.

The first day post-surgery I could actually see! My vision wasn't 100% but it was good enough for me to use the computer with the font enlarged, and I could see my television just fine.

Day 2 post-surgery, a Sunday, was my first time behind the wheel after the surgery. It felt weird and I was dizzy and a little nauseated because I now have a full field of vision instead of the very restricted straight-ahead vision I had with my glasses. It takes a bit of getting used to.

Day 3 post-surgery was my first checkup. My visual acuity was 20/200 at BEST before the surgery. They measured it as 20/30 3 days after the op.

Day 9 post-surgery I am still dealing with dry eyes (normal) and poor night vision (also normal at this phase).

I finished all the anti-biotic eyedrops but am still using the anti-inflammatory drops and the wetting drops. My next checkup is on 3/12.
