Lord Opie, pay attention. Went to my lasik consult today, I'm farsighted and had a astigmatism, so without glasses I'm screwed. I've really tired of having bad eyesight, and spending a small fortune on glasses. Basically 2-3 years of glasses are about the same as a Lasik procedure. Well after they mapped my cornea, and tested the thickness the doctor says I'm borderline. The procedure will require taking off a lot of material, and my corneas are are not thick enough to allow a second procedure if the first isn't perfect. The surgeon is probably going to do a PRK procedure instead since it doesn't require a flap of cornea. The bad news is it's more painful, and the recovery time is longer. But I'll be able to get a second procedure if it's needed, and there are some new eyedrops that mask most of the pain. After the procedure I'll be able to see well, but will still need reading glasses.
