helppp a sistah see!

here's the deal:
i'm set to get lasik next thursday (!!!)
{assuming my consultation goes flawless on tuesday}

here's where you come in:
please, share all the information you know about it.
success stories?
opposite of success stories?
have you had it?!

i want it because i'm tired of contacts and glasses and my mom says no no because she doesn't think i should risk it.  but dreaming of waking up and being able to see without the help of glasses sounds unreal to me! 

i want to hear all sides, the good, the bad, the ugly!

I have not had lasik (because I don't have bad eyesight) but 2 good friends and one family member has had it and all three LOVED it! And they see perfectly fine without corrective lenses now! Good luck!!

I had lasik and have sent several friends to the same doctor. It was money very well spent! Is it uncomfortable? Yes, but it takes about 10 minutes and you can do almost anything for 10 minutes. When I was done, I sat up & they opened the window, asking me to read the street sign way across the street. No problem reading it at all. Be prepared for needing LOTS of eyedrops for the next year or so, my eyes are crazy dry, but so much better than contacts! Good luck!

I have worn glasses/contacts since kindergarten...and I'm torn about getting Lasik! I've only heard success stories, can't wait to hear about your experience!

My husband had this done about 2 years and he will tell you it's the BEST money we have ever spent. Waking up and not having to reach for glasses or mess with contacts has truly made him happier..as weird as that sounds. I do remember the first morning..we were both nervous to see how it all went down but I have only seen him happier a few other times. =)

My aunt and uncle got it the week after having their first baby, so it was definitely a risk but their procedures both turned out amazing! My uncle had trouble seeing for the first day to be honest but the doctor said it was totally normal for him and it has been perfect ever since! I want to get this someday..I'm definitely too young now, {apparently there's room for my vision to get worse first, who knew that was possible?! haha} Good luck thursday!!
