    .... My mil has had this surgery and no longer wears glasses... I misread your initial post as lazy eye surgery instead of lazer eye surgery lol

    I had it done about 12 years ago. I love, love LOVE it!

    No more having contacts getting uncomfortable, no more being blind at the beach and I can fall asleep without having to worry about taking contacts out!

    Did I mention that I love it!

    My eye sight is still good, although not quite as good as when I first got it done. Worth every cent!

    The idea is a bit daunting, isn't it?!

    My only advice is to go with a surgery who have been around for a while and know what they're doing. IMO, this isn't the type of procedure to go with the cheapest price!!

    I had it done about 10 years ago and it's the best thing I've ever done.

    I was extremely nervous and really worried that something would go wrong but thankfully I've had no problems at all.

    The procedure itself was quick and they use numbing eye drops so I didn't feel a thing. My eyes felt very gritty for probably the first 12 hours after, like I had beach sand in them, it was extremely uncomfortable, not painful but just a horrible feeling, but I took painkillers and slept through it. After a day I could see everything clearly, it was amazing. 10 years later and my eye sight is still great.

    That's a great description of the feeling - I was the same

    I had it done 19 years ago and it was the best money I have ever spent. My eyesight is fantastic. My friend had it done in Russia nearly 30 years ago. She says her eyesight is fantastic too. It did take about 8 years for the eye dryness to go away but the perfect eyesight outweighs any of the negative stuff.
