omg i was so scared the day of my surgery. i almost backed out as i was sitting in the chair with everyone in surgical garb. my heart was pounding, i broke out in a rash on my neck, it was awful. i've never been so distressed in my life, outside of deaths of loved ones. i can truly say that if i can do it, anyone can. they said i won the "nervous nelly" award that day.
i'm -4.00 in each eye--or rather, i was -4.00 in each eye. pm me if you want detailed info on the surgery, that day, etc. i don't want to bore everyone with the gory details. needless to say, it was the strangest experience of my life. i couldn't wear contacts to begin with, so i was stuck with glasses anyway. my insurance paid for part of it, and the center i chose has a discount for nurses. so i got about $850 knocked off between the two discounts. for a total of $2700 for the 'custom vue' -- the super-duper special laser.
but like i said, the next day i was 20/15 in each eye. it's great!!!!!
