[QUOTE=Buzzsaw;2369659]Anybody here had LASIK done before? I've been wanting it for a while now and wanted to hear from some people that have had it. Things I'm curious about would be price, level of pain/discomfort, and obviously results. Thanks.[/QUOTE]
I had it done about 8-9 years ago.
Pre-op was about 20 minutes and featured a soft felt tip marker being lightly tapped on my eyeball to calibrate the guidance system on the machine.
The doctor then used a spreader-type device to expose my eyeball and to prevent me from blinking.
The actual proceedure lasted about 10 minutes and featured my eyesight diluted, looking as if light water drops had enetered my eyeball as the Doctor opened the film that encloses your eye lens and when the laser was operating, it felt as if air was being pressed down into my eyeball.
The proceedure lasted about 15 minutes, it was not painful at all, just at times uncomfortable.
I went home with protective plastic eyeglass lens type coverings taped to my eyes in case of a car accident (my parents drove) and went in for my post-op check up th enext morning. I was immediately seeing at a 20/25 level, impressive considering I was at 20/200-250.
Today, I still have 20/15, 20/20 vision in each eye. I can defintely vouch for its quick proceedure and long term success.
