I’m nervous for you too! I want to get lasik but my eyes keep changing so I have to wait till it levels out or it won’t be worth the money.


Good luck and sending good thoughts your way.

I had Lasik in September and I LOVE IT!  I was quick and easy – I’m not sure how PRK compares as far as recovery is concerned but I would think it is similar, just might take longer.

Good luck!  🙂

Oh wow, peaches, let us know how it goes.  I’m really hoping to get some kind of eye surgery down the road, so I jumped on this post when I saw the title.  I know the process will be tough, but what an exciting thing to do!  Sending you lots of happy, healing thoughts!

I hope that it goes well.  I’m sure that you have researched and chosen the best doctor for you so it will be fine.  They have had a lot of practice with those surgeries and it’s getting better all the time. You’ll be in my thoughts!

I had LASIK 2 months ago, and it’s the best thing I ever did! My eyesight was really bad as well couldn’t see anything without glasses or contacts, and now I still can’t believe how perfect it is.

I know it’s a bit of a scary process, I was nervous too, but just think of the difference it will make to your life…. good luck for tomorrow!

Good luck! Lasik has been something that I have been thinking about doing for a while. I just have to wait until I am on a better (red: not a student) health insurance plan) Let us know how it goes!!

I had Lasik when I was 17, a whopping fourteen years ago. My vision is still 20/20, and other than really mild dry eye (I have to put drops in when I wake up each morning), I’ve suffered zero side effects. The immediate recovery was definitely uncomfortable, so make sure your doctor has a plan to help you handle that, but after a day or two, my eyes felt fine.

Good luck!!

Peaches! how did it go?  I was in the same boat you were…a bit worse…couldn’t see the E on the board even if it was two feet away from me!  I wore glasses/contacts for 15 years before that so it was such a relief not to reach for glasses or contacts or freak out if i couldn’t find either one. 

be sure to wear sunglasses for a few weeks whenever you go out in the daytime!
