    Appropriate username is appropriate. :P Seriously though, congrats! Don't you have to be conscious for that kind of procedure? Because I sure as hell wouldn't be able to do something like that while awake. D:

    Still myopia here :(
    Did it get removed simply by that?

    @Navigatr thanks, yes you are conscious but your eyes are anesthetized so it's painless during, the after is a bit painful but it can be managed with mild painkillers (paracetamol was enough for me). The procedure is about 20 minutes long.

    @Hallelouia so you see them doing stuff to your eyes? Won't one freak out?

    @PrivateGER ohh shit.

    @PrivateGER well it requires your myopia to be stabilized so it doesn't evolve after surgery but a skilled surgeon can over/under correct your vision to prevent such cases. My surgeon will operate again free of charge if my vision change during the next year.

    @hasu yes, they give you bromazepam (anti-anxiety meds) so you don't freak out + anesthesia for your eyes (eye drops) so it's as little invasive as possible

    @hasu yeah, I lost two dioptres to it in the last year alone. :(

    @hasu myopia affects your far vision specifically.

    @Hallelouia

    Can you shot laser from your eyes now?

    @hasu lol, it's nothing so scary. Myopia is near-sightedness i.e the condition in which you slowly lose the ability to focus on far objects. It's the most common reason for people having spectacles/contact lenses. The other, less common one is hypermetropia, which is similar but reversed - you slowly lose the power to focus on near objects (people who need "reading glasses" have hypermetropia).

    @Hallelouia I'm myopic too, just waiting for my vision to stabilize so I can get something like this done.
    Any possible unpleasant side effects to this operation?

    @RememberMe your surgeon will warn you, there's a small chance of infection if you don't follow your doctor's instructions, basically don't touch your eyes and put your antibiotics drops.

    @Hallelouia right, thanks!

    Congrats! I'm also thinking of undergoing it when I get a job and can afford it.

    @RememberMe You also can get problems with different light conditions. Up to night blindness. That's the reason I don't do it. Can't image not to drive my car at night or at bad light conditions.

    I'm planning to do it as well, but the price :0

    Congrats!

    I had what is marketed as “Custom LASIK” here in the US. Best $6k I ever spent.

    @bkwilliams that's what I got, my country has it cheaper though, about half the price.

    @RememberMe ohhh then I just didn't know the proper term for it. I'm nearsighted also... x'D

    Does that mean you can now shoot lasers out of your eyes?

    I got it too!

    I once had an eye surgery because I heavily squinted. Was awful, and I need glasses to correct for the rest deviation so that laser for correcting my around 2 dioptres wouldn't help.

    @Hallelouia But congrats to your successful eye surgery, especially because myopia is really annoying! Hope is stays well.:-)

    Did you do that because the glasses were becoming really thick, or more for beauty reasons?

    @Fast-Nop I pretty much did it because I could and because I could and because I was tired of looking through dirty glasses 80% of the time, also not have tout look for my glasses in a haze when I wake up is priceless
