But the recovery was really quick and the temazepan they give you gave me the best sleep since my DS was born 18mths. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
    thanks for that, I hope it's not too daunting. I hopefully should be right, I have gone thru 2 ceasers, one natural birth, had two broken noses and have had to have a 3rd surgery to correct it again which was mind incredibly painful, and have had to have surgery to remove a cyst that had eaten the bone away between the top teeth and the base of my nose. ouch. seriously ouch. so hopefully the eyes don't feel too bad. lol. great to hear how good everything looks, ive definitely heard things look brighter. I won't know myself without glasses/contacts, I have been wearing them since I was 10! (32 now.)

    Let us know how you go? I am considering it too and consider myself to have a fairly high pain threshold...

    ok, I have my eye assessment on Monday the 28th. They said if I have soft contact lenses they musn't be worn for 2 weeks prior to surgery. if they are hard contacts, no wearing for 6-8 weeks prior to surgery. omg, I can't wait!!!!! On the other hand, I hate wearing my glasses. I don't know how I will last for 2 weeks. aargh.

    I was a soft contact lens wearer and couldn't wear them for a week before. It nearly killed me wearing my glasses, but it was worth it. Best to google the procedure. It's not pleasant but I wouldn't say it was painful. A bit scary as at one point your vision goes completely, when they are preparing to cut the flap. But a nurse briefed me beforehand as to exactly what was going to happen.
    I had by 2nd and final check last week and the optometrist said my right eye has healed so well that if I went to a regular optician now and didn't mention I'd had LASIK then they'd probably not even know I'd had it done as its healed so well.
