    Default Corrective Eye Surgery?

    Any of you tBF'ers have had corrective eye surgery? I'm thinking about going under the "LASER". I have really bad vision, and I'm so fed up with wearing contacts/glasses. I'd like to hear some stories/advice....


    Thanks!



    So a Valentino Historie and an LV accessory or Lasik eye surgery??! Hmm...

    My brother had it done a few weeks ago, well actually I was a little different version called PRK (I dont know what the difference is). But anyways, he loves it, I worked great for him. He was saying the other day that he sees better then he did, then when he had his glasses on.

    My friend's mom had it done a looooooong time ago, back when it was pretty new (she did it because she won a chunk of change on a scratch lotto ticket). Anyways, as far as I know she hasn't had any problems. I'm sure the procedure has changed a lot since then. Let's see... complete opposite scenario, one of my former managers. She had it done and then a few months later she had hemorrhages happen in both eyes. But then Mr BRS's cousin had it done a couple of years ago and he hasn't had any problems. ::shrugs::

    Anyways, I had wanted to have it done myself just because I spend over $500 every year on daily disposable contacts since I cannot wear the regular kind anymore (stupid allergies). I figured it would pay for itself after a couple of years, but I just don't have the money to fork over at the moment so maybe it will be something I will consider again after I graduate.

    I don't know anyone who's personally had it done. I have heard that it works well for some people and for others it doesn't, but it's one of those things that you won't know until you try. Which stinks since you have to shell out the money and not know the outcome. I have always wanted to have it done, but I've heard I can't since I have astigmatism. I don't mind wearing contacts, although sometimes they can be a pain. They cost me about $150 a year. In the long run though it is probably worth it money wise.

    One of my best friends had it done last year and she said that not only did it not hurt, but that she was out of there in no time and didn't even really notice any difference except that she could finally see. And she's a big wimp.

    My DH's grandmother had it done recently. Her eyesight was getting REALLY bad... she's 98. But now she doesn't need her glasses anymore and she's thrilled!
    I have been considering having it done, but I'm too scared of anything that's got to do with the eyes.

    I thought insurance would pay for it, or some of it, if it was truly necessary. My bf wants to get it done, he hates dealing with his glasses, and never wears contacts bc he can only keep them in for so long.

    If you really want to have it done, I say have a consultation with the doctor who would do it. They can give you a lot of information. I bet they would even give you a payment plan so you didn't have to pay all at once if insurance won't cover any of it.

    Will you parents pay for it or help you out?

    ^^^ Umm... I'm planning on setting up a consultation with two different eye doctors in my area some time next week... I have $2,500 I can put in myself, and if I need more $$$, then I'm planning on asking the parents for some help. I wonder how much the procedure costs? Any ideas?

    My brother payed 3000 for his, 1500 for each eye. But he is on some kind of payment plan so I think he pays like 20 a month or something.

    I totally get the eye surgery. I'm thinking of getting it.. my eyes have gotten worse with graves disease and will continue to get worse. So sounds like a great idea to me.. I hate glasses!

    My mother in law, 2 uncles and a close friend have had it done and were thrilled withit. It is a lot of eyedrops for the fist week or so, but after that, no problems reported!

    My mom just had it and she absolutely loves it! She has always had horrible vision and now she's so happy! She said it's the best feeling to wake up and just be able to see. I would do it too, but I'm too scared haha
