Lasik Surgery: My Final Thoughts
Over the past few weeks, I’ve chronicled my Lasik surgery that I had done in January. From making the decision, the weeks before surgery, the eye drops, etc – I’ve now come to my last post: my final thoughts on Lasik. Immediately after surgery, I had dry eye in both eyes. The multitude of eye drops helped, and eventually my left eye was deemed 20/20 and had no issues. My right eye was a different story. It took two months for the dry eye to clear up and for the doctor to announce is was finally at 20/20. I’ll admit – I was pretty scared for a while. I was getting tired of constantly having to put drops in my right eye, and wondered if the dry eye would never go away – which can happen. I was extremely relieved when I started noticing a difference, and when I was told that both eyes were at 20/20. I can’t remember the last time I used an eye drop, but I do have a bottle handy in my purse just in case.
Lasik surgery was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It’s pretty incredible not to deal not only with glasses and contacts and the hassle they bring, but also the money I save by not having to buy contacts every few months and cases and solution, etc. I love being able to wake up in the morning and not fumble for my glasses, or take a nap in the middle of the day without having to take my contacts out. Lasik surgery worked for me, and I am one happy customer.
