Mostly blind, lasik sucks

I;m going to mastly type this with my eyes closed since it hurts to keep them open. When I was told about lasik I heard that people were fine to go back to work the very next day. What a load of horse shit. I was wrecked for 2 days I can still barely keep my eyes open. The pain meds are top notch though.

I got something called PRK, ill let you look that one up if you want, but they basically shave your cornea off adn then laser blast your eyes. Now if you're wondering what fried eyeball smells like, it smells like whenyou rub two rocks together. I was fine until the valium wore off then it was nothing but pain until i got the norco in which i promptyu took double the dosage and passed the fuck out. I then slept off and on for 2 days while putting in eye drops. I can just now keep my eyes open long enough to walk around without walking into shit and even then its like looking tghrough a dirty windshield.

If you're thinking of getting lasik, remember this post.

Noted. I'm very irresponsible with my contacts and have considered lasik, but to my understanding you have to be awake for it and that's a big "Fuck that" from this guy.

You'll have to let us know how it all turns out in the end. My great grandma Gravelle had lasik and was back in glasses less than a decade later.

I just got the bandage contacts out and now it just feels like theres a bunch of grit in my eyes. My pupils are like pin pricks so light is super bright, makes it hard to drive and my eyes water a lot. When I can see through the tears, its quite clear.

im calling bullshit. it is virtually a law...and if not a law a policy in every surgical theater that ive ever heard of...in the US that surgeons arent allowed to commit a surgical procedure on both eyes at the same time.

It was one at a time. One right after the other. The procedure took about 15 minutes.
