I had it done in October. I'd been wearing glasses since the 4th grade (I'm 36), using contacts for sports; but the contacts were a huge inconvenience, and they were not very comfortable.I was extremely nearsighted: a -9 correction, which is on the order of 20 / 2 miles, although they don't use that 20/20 scale when your correction is that high. I had it done on a Friday: by Sunday I could drive (had healed to about 20/40). At the end of a week one of my eyes was about 20/20. The healing continued: by the end of the month (probably earlier) I was 20/20 or better in both eyes.Odd stuff to get used to:o When I read in bed at night, when I put the book down and roll over to turn the light out, I still reach for my face to take off the glasses (which aren't there).o Being able to read the alarm clock across the room when I wake up.o Being able to see how badly the shower stall needs cleaning.o Using sunglasses.o Realizing that I'm NOT forgetting something, when I can find my watch but not my glasses.o Holding the book a little farther away when I'm reading than I used to hold it.My eyes still get itchy and or blurry when I'm tired, like around 10 or 11 at night. So I go to bed a trifle earlier than I used to: not such a big deal. That's the only issue I have, and it's been about 3 months or so. No complications, looks like no need for an enhancement / follow-up, nothing.
