Recommended Posts

It's the other one that creeps me the hell out.

 

Where they cut a slit in your eyeball and slide a lens into it.

Technically I had PRK done. Lasik they slit your epithelium, blast away, then fold it back down and let it heal.

 

PRK they completely remove the epithelium then blast away, then let it regrow.

 

What kind of monster procedure are you talkin boot Shad?

Do they just put a corrective lens in your eye permanently?

I think I had my terms backwards then. What you're calling Lasik is what I was thinking of.

 

I have this vision of getting hit in the back of the head and the front half of my eyeball falling out

 

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Glad you are doing well, and hope the next few days go smoothly.

 

I had corneal transplant when I was seven months old. Some sight in left eye better than none at all.

 

Hoping your surgery is a great success.

Lol. It only took about ten-fifteen minutes. And whatever numbing agent they use is sweet. I felt nothing

Cuz you're wide awake and not clamped down at all.

 

I expected at least a megatron grade head clamp

At any rate, hope it works out for you.

 

Anything that involves penetrating my body freaks me the hell out.  I'll stick to contacts.

I swear to you that was way less dirty when I thought it than how it came out.

I just got contacts for the first time since 2001.

 

I also haven't had an eye exam since 2000.  I probably wouldn't have gotten around to it this year except my glasses broke right before I needed to leave for work on Tuesday, and my hand was forced.

 

Apparently I'm officially old and need bifocals.  :sad:

Yeah, the two days after PRK are rough, and you will probably have headaches due to occasional blurring for the first month. That was my experience at least :D

 

I will also say it was totally a million percent worth it :P

I actually have had no problems. Vision is slightly blurry, but not as bad as it once was. No pain at all today, and yesterday was very mild.. I even drove 3 hours today cuz I forgot my friends wedding was today.

At least they aren't tri-focals. That's good right?
