Ok, I've had enough. I am getting my eye surgery this year!

The past couple of weeks I've been getting pretty bad headaches and couldn't figure out why. Then finally today, one of my contacts was bothering me. I removed them both, put on my glasses. 30 minutes later, my headache was gone.

I hate wearing my glasses. I don't like looking peripherally and not being able to see clearly. Despite being a new prescription, I still don't see as clearly with my glasses as I do with my contacts. Despite the quality of the lenses, I hate the light and metal reflections I get on the sides of the lenses that cause me to think something is flying around my head.

So I will start researching, yet again, prices, different choices, and the best time frame. With my new job, I cannot take vacation for 6 months or sick leave for 3 months. My hope is that I could do it over a 3 day weekend.

So those of you that have had lasik done or known of others that have had it done, I am open to your stories and suggestions.

I work with a nonprofit patient advocacy that provides information about Lasik. We don't do the surgery - just information. There is a lot to learn and the more you know the better choices you can make. Most important is the choice of Lasik doctor...or if Lasik is actually the best procedure for you. There are several alternatives.

Stop by and browse our website. We also have an active question and answer forum.

Best thing in the world for the vision impaired. It was quick and remarkable. Recall going to bed that night looking up at the ceiling fan and saying, "I never noticed the fan's fret work before." Just get a good doctor. TN had the best in LA...doc to the stars. Of course he just raved about the gorgeous nurses.
