I got lasik yesterday


Yup so far I'm at 20/15, so freakin awesome. Ok so I've been saving all year using some non taxable money to get the procedure done. Went to see the eye doc who said I was a good candidate for wavefront or intralasik, basically the difference between the two is one uses a blade to cut the flap of the eye back and the other uses a laser to do it. Both use the laser to do the actual correction, essentially the blade can cut a thinner amount back but the laser is virtually failsafe (at least that's how I was sold). I opted for the more expensive procedure which took place in san leandro by dr. turner. He's got a ton of experience and has taught it and was voted best at it by various magazines etc.

When it comes down to picking a doc you want someone with lots of experience, not for the actual procedure but rather for the situations when things go wrong. You want someone who's dealt with those sketchy situations and knows how to take the right steps to correct the situation.

Anyhow so far I'm seeing great and feeling good, if you want to read a good blog about one guys lasik experience check this.
