Vision Quest Completion: My LASIK Day Yesterday

So, the idea was to have been that my LASIK surgeon would give me a copy of the video of my surgery, and I would post it up here while I described my time under the beam, but... the doctor was switching from analog video equipment to digital video equipment, so nothing was recorded. Sigh.

Luckily, a quick YouTube search produced this gem from "jackdakota" and his LASIK. It's amazingly well done, and perfectly describes my day yesterday.

For the record - within 3 hours I was walking the dogs, by the next morning I drove myself back to the doctors to get the "morning after" report: corneal flap sealed perfectly, my vision is now 20/25 in both eyes. The distance vision is not as crisp as with contacts, but is predicted to increase dramatically over the next few weeks. Oddly, I no longer need reading glasses, which they didn't think would happen.

So...sit back, and enjoy my day yesterday through "jackdakota's" eye.
