    Default Re: I'm getting LASIK tomorrow, so...

    may i ask how much did it cost you? and if it hurts? I'm tired of wearing eyeglasses already. /contacts is not an option either, doc said my eyes are too dry.

    I started crying when the doctor asked me what time it was and I was able to tell him.
    The only discomfort I remember is putting the drops in the eyes for the first 2 days after - it stung a bit then not after that.
    If you're on the fence about it, I will go on record as saying that short of the miracle of having 2 children, this is the best thing I have done for myself.
    So happy for you Viva!
    THanks... I totally know how you felt... Wow... you had bad vision as well... I'm glad us former bats can finally see... So have you had any changes? Like, has your vision stayed the same??! I just feel like theres some type of catch... it's too good to be true... ya know? IDK... that's just how I feel.

    I paid $4,200 for the procedure... he's a well known surgeon in my area and in the Houston area... It was absolutely painless, just a bit uncomfortable (the laser beam, the smell, the touching of my eye, eye drops...), but overall, definitely worth it.
