It took time to gather your courage, but you finally decided it was time to consider LASIK surgery. You didn’t want to go through the rest of your life controlled by glasses or contact lenses. You wanted to wake up in the morning, open your eyes, and see everything clearly. That could only happen one out of two ways. You could either experience a miraculous recovery or you could give LASIK surgery a chance. Since you didn’t want to wait for the miracle, LASIK won.
LASIK was the Best Decision You Ever Made
I was worried that LASIK surgery would be painful. My LASIK surgeon was extremely competent and skilled, using the latest in technology to make sure my procedure went smoothly. I did not experience any discomfort during my procedure. After the procedure, there was some sensitivity to light, but sunglasses solved that problem. When I woke up the next day, I felt better than ever. Best of all, I could see as well as I used to when I put my glasses on. All I had to do was open my eyes.
My Side Effects Didn’t Last Long
You may have heard that there can be side effects for LASIK surgery. I have to be honest and confess that is true. I experienced the typical, such as:
- Starbursts at night
- Halos around objects at night
- Occasional bouts of blurry vision
- Inconsistency in your vision
I checked with my LASIK surgeon and was informed that everything was normal. I was patient and within a month after my procedure, my eyesight settled down. It can take up to three months and sometimes patients need adjustments. I was fortunate to make a smooth transition into a life without relying solely on glasses.
Every Patient is Unique
I learned that LASIK surgery is not one-size-fits-all. It is a precise procedure that is based on each individual’s eye condition. I put my faith and trust into my LASIK surgeon that I would be happy with my results. I am so glad I took the opportunity to have LASIK surgery. If you are thinking about it, don’t shut the door on the possibility before you go in and have a consultation visit. You may not be eligible. If you are, being informed may help you to make this life-changing decision. Ⓡ
