Cool. Tara really wants lasik (Bats scurry out of her way on occasion) when we can afford it. A bunch of guys were I used to work got it and loved it. My eyes aren't too bad, so I'm still weighing the cost/benefits of it.

Good luck to her.

Thanks!

My eyes are "beyond" the range of LASIK. I've been considering IOLs, but the procedure is pretty expensive.

How did it go?

Andy said...

Sounds like everything went well!

Tara said...

Color me green...with envy! How did it go? Does she absolutely love it? So, so, so, sooooooooo jealous!

Andy said...

Yes - Patty is loving it! Must be nice being able to wake up in the morning with clear vision...

Patty said...

Yes, I love it! my vision is now 1.2 without glasses.

But the one I did was not Lasik, it is a newer laser called NAVEX.

Andy said...

Great. Now you have super-human vision! ;-)

It's still considered LASIK, just a newer (next generation) wavefront technology.

Isn't it funny that everyone who wears glasses/contacts says, wistfully, "I wish I could wake up in the middle of the night and see my alarm clock or wake up in the morning and be able to see." And that's usually the first thing every LASIK person says too - I love being able to wake up in the morning and see.
