Given the medical procedures many of our members have posted on here, elective surgery probably doesn't really rate, but I thought I'd post all the same. I'm headed in for LASIK corrective eye surgery tomorrow, and thought I'd mention it (no nerves or anything at this point, but that probably means I'll be a nervous wreck by the time I show up for the procedure).

You've heard of "luck o' the Irish"? Most people think it means a stroke of good luck...it actually means crap for luck. I mean, we are talking about a People that we're oppressed by their overlords for, what?, 5-6,00 years? And then they started dying and sending their children away at every chance because of a potato famine..
Luck o' the Irish is bad luck.. but it's still above BoB Surgical Procedure Luck. Personally I'd delete my account, or have one of the compassionate admins do it.

Having said that, Good Luck! Very Happy

I hear the tech has come a long way from a big magnifying glass and direct sunlight, should go without a hitch, but just in case, good luck!

I've an old friend who's name is also Ian that had this done a few years ago and he's leery of doctors in general. He dreaded having this procedure but it was the only alternative to his eyesight getting bad enough to have his drivers licence cancelled.

Afterwards he admitted that there was nothing to it, no discomfort to speak of. He was still nervous as all get out about going in though!

You'll do fine Ian.


Cheers,

RR

Cart, I'm glad you recognize that us astigmatics aren't being treated fairly.. I think we need a class action lawsuit, a catchy hashtag, and some of them ugly chicks that do all that social justice warrior type stuff to aid in the cause.

Reckon Ian made it?

Hey as long as it gets me in as a tier one in a class action and allows me to play the eyeball card every time I got caught stealing and what not I'd be down for it.

I recommend this for those that can do it. Cathy went from needing glasses to see the clock on the wall all her life, to no glasses. She is old enough now that see needs cheaters to read with. But that was delayed for several years.

Do follow the recommendations of the doc about restricting the amount of time you read, or are in front of a computer for the next month or two.
