Thread: I Can See!

    Default I Can See!

    I had Lasik surgery today at about noon. Right now I am, with no difficulty, reading even the finest print on the computer without glasses. When I look across the room my vision is not as good as it was with glasses/contacts, but will improve over the next several days. My wife had the surgery a few days ago and her reaction was the exact opposite - excellent distance vision immediately and a gradual improvement in reading.
    If you require corrective lenses, you should really check this out. Had the technology been available, with the same dependability, etc. years ago, I could have saved thousands of dollars and years of inconvenience.
    I have been wearing glasses or contacts (lately, contacts with reading glasses) since I was 8 years old. I can't believe I won't need them any more.

    I had it two years ago. After the surgery I took a nap and woke up and could see! It was something that I will never regret.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I got the Mono vision. Right eye for distance. Left eye for computer. Best money I ever spent. Wife had it done also. Wore glasses since the 2nd grade. Amazing technology. 2 or 3 months it will be better yet.I had it done by the guy who invented it at Lasik Plus in Minneapolis 3 years ago. My 10 year old son wears glasses and wants to get it done. He hated to hear that he needs to wait till his 20's. Congratulations and enjoy!!

    I have to show these posts to my daughter. She wanted me to buy her clear vision glasses. Asked her why when people hate having to wear glasses. She said, "They make you look intelligent." I said to her, "But you are intelligent", and she retorts, "Yea Dad but looks are deceiving and I want people to know I'm intelligent."

    What's a father to do? Nope, didn't buy them, but I compromised for intelligent looking sunglasses.

    I've known people, male and female, with perfect vision, to wear glasses "for appearances"

    I always question the intelligence of people that "look" intelligent. He he.


    On a serious note, the downside of lasik is that long term effects are unknown and 7-10 years from surgery can possibly lead to even worse vision than before.

    Yeah, I'm sticking with the glasses for now. One woman in my office had the surgery, and for some unknown reason, still had to use glasses for up close work afterwards.
