    LASIK

    Soooo I finally got approved to have LASIK! I dunno if you guys remember but around Feb. 2007 I tried to go in and have LASIK and they said I couldn't cause my eyes were so bad. I guess with advancements in technology, now I can!

    I'm extremely nervous and excited. I'm going in Thursday, August 21st.

    I just went in today for my full evaluation. I was SO nervous today alone. They put like suction cups on my eyes. They numbed them and poked them. lol I kept backing away from it coming towards my eye.

    Anyways, they said when I have LASIK, they're gonna give me Valium to help me relax. Then they're put numbing drops in my eyes twice....and then I go "under"....lol Not really, but then they hook me up to these machines....I have it done....and within 10 minutes, I'm out.

    I'm such a pussy, but I've heard it wasn't bad. I just hope....it isn't. lol

    Anyone else know anyone or had anyone that had it done?

    When you get it, let me know how it is okay?

    I have the money for it but I am scared

    Good luck bb.

    I hate glasses/contacts and I am blind without them.

    I don't think I'd ever get it done... With eyes it's just too much of a risk if something goes wrong. Plus, I love wearing glasses, so it's a win-win situation.

    Let us know how it goes, though! I'm pretty interested.

    I've been wearing my glasses since I was 8....needless to say, I'm ready to be out of them. Contacts sonud great, but with my eyes, they dry out so much!

    I'll let everyone know how it goes. I'm so nervous!

    'Tis true!

    I was borderline not being a candidate because my vision was SO bad. All I can see without glasses are colors and shapes!

    good luck! idk if i would want to do it but since i have perfect vision i guess i dont really need to worry about it. But everything will be fine!

    this thread reminds me of on the newlyweds when Jessica Simpson got it done on her eyes, lol

    ps. i have had stys cut out of my eyelids were they had to put a shot in my eye to try to numb it but it didnt work and they took little knife and cut it out. didnt hurt so i bet this wont hurt at all. it will mostly be in your head because you will see the objects coming towards your eyes.
