Default going under the knife in the am, wish me luck.

not for anything major, actually looking foward to the procedure being complete. In the morning I am having Lasic surgery on both eyes. Luckily the eye doctor I've been going to for since I was little partnered with a doctor that is very experienced in the procedure, and has been my doctor for the past few years, which makes the entire thing seem a lot less stressful.

Good luck with the surgery. Had my eyes done almost six years ago, a little enhancement about 16 months later and I am going down to the clinic tomorrow to have a further enhancement done to one eye that has regressed a bit. I feel it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself other than marrying my wife about 41 1/2 years ago. Don't worry when you smell your eye burning, it's just part of the process. This process does not hurt one bit, they put drops in your eye, do the surgery and when you get up off the table, you can see; not perfectly but certainly much better than you could without your glasses or contacts. The day after our surgeries, my wife also had it done, we drove about 300 miles home through a blizzard with no problems.

Everyone I know that has had that procedure did very well both during and after the session. Good luck and enjoy the results. Heck, my 75 year old mother just had her eyes done.

FWIW - You haven't gone under an optical knife until they sew a synthetic band on your eyeball.......now that should be avoided at all costs...........I wish I had.

My eye doc is STILL tryin' to convince me that's the way to go. I'm practically blind in my left eye.... to the point that it's getting really hard for him to make contacts work.

I feel about lasic eye surgery about like I do havin' my wisdom teeth taken out......and no, I STILL haven't done that either....

Let us know how it goes for you, Trey! Maybe THEN I'll work up some nerve...

Good luck with the surgery. I had it done about 3 years ago. Best decision I made (besides the wife.) They say no heavy lifting for a couple days. I think you'll be happy.

Trey, hope everything went well with the follow up this morning. It is a wonderful experience. Did you have Intralase or the blade?

farmerjane, depending on the level of your prescription the new implantable contact lenses are outstanding. There is a place for both of the ICL's(www.visianinfo.com) and Lasik.

My wife had it done a couple years ago after having bad eyesight for years. My friends cant believe she hasn't dumped me after she got her eyes fixed.

Years ago when they operated on my right knee, I wrote on my left knee, with a magic marker, prior to surgery, "wrong knee". We all had a laugh after the procedure.
Good luck with the surgery, been thinking of having it done myself. I'm always misplacing my glasses.

Jane I know you know what I mean when I say you are like one of your stubborn cows....................but at the end of the pushing match, who wins? Right, the boss. Well there in part lies your problem, in your mind you ARE the boss. Look at it this way Jane, when a trucks get old it needs maintenance, well you ARE the truck. We are ALL the truck and there is no getting a new model! .....and the truck is getting older by the day I might add!

Hope the procedure went well. I had mine done 13 months ago. Best money I ever spent. Which Doc did you use? I used Holland Crosswell at Columbia Eye Clinic.

My father was an opthamologist before he retired a couple of years ago. Everyone thinks it's horrible to walk in on your parents having sex. I never had that experience. In my eyes, my experience walking in on my father watching operation videos was worse. Seeing them slice the eyeball and pull those flaps back just gives me the creeps.

so far so good. Got home this afternoon & took a long nap. There was a good bit of stinging for the ride home. A good dose of lubricating drops & a couple of advill knocked that right out. My site appears to now be perfect. Not supposed to overuse my eyes for the next few days, so I probably won't be online that much, but I'll keep everybody updated.

My Dr. is Dr. Keith Riddle with Montgomery & Riddle Eye Associates in Clinton & Newberry SC. The actual procedure was done at TLC eye centers in Greenville SC.
