For as long as I can remember, I have worn glasses and contact lenses. Though there have been great strides in making glasses more fashionable, I still never liked them. Not only are they cumbersome, but carrying glasses around can become annoying. I decided to get lasik surgery so I would never have to wear glasses again. The results were almost instant, and very clear, it was like seeing a whole different way. For years, it has been difficult for me to enjoy my favorite hobby, surfing. One my eyes were healed and I got the okay from my doctor, I was able to surf again with perfect vision. This almost brought me to tears as the water and everything about it was truly beautiful.
Now for years, I had contemplated visiting a lasik surgery clinic to fix my vision. But there were things holding me back from taking the next step. One was the potential of lasik side effects, which I learned are very slim. Having contacts can cause problems with eyes at a higher rate than lasik, but I was not only worried about safety. Sadly, I was worried about the lasik eye surgery cost, but luckily it has come down a lot since I started looking years ago.
I scheduled an appointment on the recommendation of my orthodontist for an Epi Lasik session. The first appointment was just to go over everything that I needed to do to prepare for the surgery, and what to expect. The second appointment was the actual lasik surgery, which took a matter of minutes. My friend drove me, as they require this for safety reasons. After the surgery, I went home, and slept the rest of the night, though there were no lasik side effects at all.
When I woke up, I could see clearly, much more clearly than usual. The amazing thing was, it got better and better every day. I went to a couple of follow up appointments at the lasik surgery clinic, and everything was perfect. Lasik surgery was one of the best investments I have ever made and I would certainly recommend it to anyone. My vision is now the same as it was when I was a young child. The whole process involved no pain or discomfort whatsoever.
