I had LASIK done. I remember the day very, very well - December 5, 2000. I had spent the majority of my life legally blind. I had to depend on glasses or contacts since I was in elementary school. I had completely forgotten what it was like to actually see good. Without contacts, I had to feel my way through the house without being able to really see things. If something was moved, chances were, I hit it. Growing up, I prayed every night for good eyesight, not really thinking I would get it. Then about 3 years ago, I was told that I had to have something done, because I was getting to the point where I would not be able to wear my contacts. Glasses just weren't an option for me anymore, because they were so thick. They made my self-esteem hit rock bottom. Since my eye sight had stopped dropping, finally, the doctor told me I was a candidate. After getting information, and being evaluated, they set it up. I had to go six weeks before the surgery without contacts (longest six weeks of my life). The surgery itself only took a few minutes. It seems like your eyeball is going to be sucked out of the socket for a few seconds, but you don't feel it and, don't worry it doesn't actually come out of the socket. The suction keeps it still. There is no pain at all. The only discomfort I felt after the surgery was that it felt like I had sand in my eyes, and I couldn't touch them. I was already reading signs on the way home and looking at things in a whole new way. I felt like the happiest woman alive. Today, I still have 20-20 vision. My prayers were answered with a miracle, payed for by a church.
I would recommend LASIK to anyone. Do it.
