I finally did it. I got LASIK at Feinerman Vision Center. And now I understand why everyone says they wished they got it sooner because that is exactly how I feel. The entire process was about 15 mins long and I felt like I could see better immediately after than I could have before without contacts or glasses. The only discomfort I felt was on the car ride home (in traffic) when the numbing drops started to wear off and I didn’t have any pain medication to take. However, once I got home and popped some ibuprofen and took a nap, I was fine. I spent the weekend in bed and slept more than I’ve ever slept, probably ever.
I do see some halos around lights at night (which is common post surgery), but it is honestly not any different than what I experienced with contacts so it really doesn’t bother me. If this does improve, awesome. If it doesn’t, so be it. I’m just glad that I can now watch TV in bed and not have to get up to take off my contacts before sleeping!
