LASIK - Eye Surgery Experience
I have been struggling with my eyesight since i was five years old.
Wearing glasses and eye contacts has always been a big issue of mine.
Over the years my eyesight has dramatically increase at a point where i wasn't comfortable anymore.
My prescription was strong -8.0 in each eye with a slight astigmatism.
Finally i took the big decision to get LASIK eye surgery done.
So here is my personal experience with LASIK eye surgery and my recovery....
I don’t think anyone is comfortable when going into surgery, so admitting I was afraid is nothing surprising.
However, the doctors and nurses were so kind, they made me feel comfortable.
Choosing a great doctor is one of the most important steps, you must feel confident and comfortable before entering any hospital.
Any way ,the surgery went smoothly and to be honest i don't remember much, just me praying on repeat.
I was instructed to take a 2-4 hour nap to help my eyes heal.
This is definitely something you don’t want to skip because you want to keep your eyes closed.
As soon as i woke up from my nap, i could clearly see everything.
My vision was back!
Today, its been my 4th day of recovery and i honestly feel great. During my 7 days of recovery, i need to continue using my prescription drops (4 times a day) and avoid water on my face.
It’s still crazy to me to think I got eye surgery.
To sum up
Choosing the best doctor is everything!!
LASIK eye surgery is not painful !!
Recovery is not painful !!
Everything is checking out perfectly !!!
