My Experience with Laser Eye Surgery

February 19, 2013 · 24 comments

Laser eye surgery = complete.

I even made the following video (linked here if you can’t see the embedded video below) the day after my LASIK procedure to fill you all in on how I was feeling/looking:


My thoughts in a nutshell? I’m so glad I did this.

You know, when I first decided I was going to have this done three years ago, I was a little hesitant. Would the money be better spent toward a down payment on a new car I will soon need? Is it really a hardship wearing contacts/glasses? I wasn’t sure.

Then, after getting a desk job and realizing that looking into a computer for almost 8 hours gave me awful dry/burning eyes, I was more encouraged to look into laser eye surgery. And let’s not forget the annoyance of how annoying contacts can get when you’re tired, how big of a pain it is to take them out/put them in for naps, and how they can present a problem if you’re waterskiing, stranded on a desert island, or in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

I don’t have to worry about ANY of that anymore, and I’m psyched. Come at me, zombies, I’m ready!

But not just yet. If the zombies are yielding a light source of any kind, I’d be done for.

On a serious note, I’m now on day 4 of recovery, and I’m feeling pretty good. I need sunglasses in any light, fluorescents are killin’ me, and it still feels like there’s sand or an eyelash in my eye, but my vision is so amazingly improved already.

I’ll soon fill you guys in about the process of LASIK and the good, the bad, and the ugly of the recuperation involved. Feel free to leave me any questions in the comments, and I’ll do my best to cover them. :)
