What exactly is the procedure? I am interested in getting it done but I am a big chicken.
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.
