      I coudl see within a few hours but it takes up to a week of care though, so I can’t rub my eyes hard and such. But vision-wise, I was really surprised it was so quick, so yay 🙂

      MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO!

    Welcome back! You weren’t awake/conscious for the surgery, were you?!?

    Reply
    • beverly posted on December 23, 2006 at 6:43 am

      Hehe yes, definitely. It’s just dropping some anaesthetic drops and that’s it, you don’t feel a thing. Some people get sedation but it was really unecessary for me since I dn’t fear surgery and wasn’t nervous/scared/anxious. It was a bit of a no-brainer since it’s just < 3mins per eye!

    Glad it worked out well! 🙂 I’m thinking of getting Lasik sometime in the future too (contacts can be a pain in the butt!)–thing is, I have astigmatism, so I’m not sure if my eyes will get weird from getting Lasik..

    • beverly posted on December 23, 2006 at 3:48 pm

      Contacts can def be sooo annoying sometimes. Plus when I added up the cost of using them for life, it ends up cheaper getting Lasik! I’m astigmatic too in my left eye 🙂

    Wow, I would’ve thought an operation like that would be really painful, I’m glad it wasn’t!

    Reply
    • beverly posted on December 23, 2006 at 3:48 pm

      Yeah, I think the thought of it seems a lot scarier/more painful than it actually is. It was actually better than going to the dentist, BY FAR!

    I am thinking about getting it done for a long time already but never had the courage for it. I have really bad eye sight, both of my eyes are like minus 9 to 10. Wish i had it done already and dont have to worry about contact lenses everyday!!

        I think i will seriously consider getting it done next year. I might get it done for free here in DK, just need to check out the rules first! 🙂

      Try the Singapore eye clinic, and ask for doctor Yeo Kim Teck. he’s a senior consultant there and my uncle, but basically any of the senior consultants are great!
