The LASIK procedure has greatly improved the quality of not only my life, but my overall opinion of myself. This single thing did more to improve my level of self-confidence. I also continue to receive many compliments now that I no longer need my glasses.
I began wearing glasses in the sixth grade, and looking back at those pictures, I never liked what I saw. As I got older I attempted to find both glasses and contacts that I was happy with. I never did, so when I heard that it was possible for me to eliminate my need for both, I immediately wanted to do it. Years later, (I am now 26), I have finally been able to do that, and I am so glad that I did.
The results from my actual surgery are better that expected, as my vision improved to 20/15 from 20/20, and I find myself often trying to see how far I can actually see! It is almost like having new eyes! I noticed immediately after the surgery that everything was much sharper and better defined. It is wonderful to be able to wear sunglasses like everyone else without having to find those really stupid looking attachable sunglasses.
My actual surgery was by far the most unique experience I have had in a long time. The most enjoyable part to me was the fact that I was laying on the table in my jeans, sneakers, and a t-shirt. I liked that I could converse with Dr. Mitchell throughout the procedure. There was nothing very painful during the procedure or after. In fact, the next day I was able to resume my normal activities. This experience has been one of the most enjoyable of my life.
