I was incredibly nervous going in, but I am happy to say the results exceeded my wildest expectations and most certainly the best $5k I spent ever!! My only regret was not doing the procedure sooner!!
I went in for the consultation on 3/9. TLC staff was very helpful in answering all of my questions and thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Once they confirmed that I was a candidate for LASIK I was able to schedule time for the surgery right away on 3/19. Due to the short time until the surgery date they were able to do pre-op exam at the same appointment (which I understand you would usually need another appointment for this exam).
Again on the day of surgery the TLC staff was very helpful at making sure I know exactly what to expect every step of the way. The procedure itself was very quick, less than 20 mins. Afterwards my eyes were a little blurry and tearing a lot but not much pain. I arrived home at about 8PM and went to sleep right away, the next morning I woke up with perfect eye sight and really no pain or grittiness, just a little dryness (kind of like when you fell asleep with contacts in). The drops help a lot with the dryness and feels great if you keep them in the fridge (great advise from Jim!!)
The TLC team provided great support throughout the entire process. The hardest part for me was certainly the uncertainty beforehand, but the entire team has done great to keep me informed and putting my mind at ease.
