Yeah def get the glasses. You’ll be really sensitive to light. You’ll probably find that you will notice a difference in sight straight away. No a big difference but straight after I was brough into the aftercare room and was able to read the clock which was about 15feet away. And I’m sure as you know, with our prescriptions, that never happened before!
Yeah there is a burning smell, sorry forgot about that. Apparently it’s the laser on the atmosphere. All you need to know is it isn’t your eye!haha.
When they are lifting the flap, you don’t even know. All you see coming towards you is like a circle, just gets clamped on your eye. Really not as bad as it sounds.
When they start witht the laser, they counted down how long I had left. Ask them to do this, makes it go really quickly. To give you an idea, I had to look into the laser for 50 seconds each eye, so it’s really quick.
The thing that takes longest is waiting for the drops to numb your eye.
And the laser is quite cool, not sure if they are all the same but it was like looking into a green and red strobe light!
Let me know how it goes, if you need anymore info, let me know.
But trust me, it’s best thing I’ve ever got done and you hardly feel anything
