My youngest son David has been wearing contacts since he was a teenager. A few years ago he developed a problem with his eyes and hasn’t been able to wear contacts; giant papillary conjunctivitis, an allergic reaction to the lens. It’s very annoying to him and he’s wanted to get his eyes corrected ever since then. Last month he told us he had decided to have surgery. He checked it out, arranged everything and we drove him to his appointment for the laser surgery……right before they took him in, the machine hesitated so they postponed him until this month. Today is the day! He’s going in early Friday morning to get lasik on his eyes and I sure hope they have their machine fixed.

We’re praying for everything to go smoothly and that he won’t have any side effects with light sensitivity or other things.
I hope to have a good report later and some updated pictures!

    I wish him lots of luck & a successful procedure! I cannot deal with contacts. I never got used to feeling them in my eyes (my eyes are very sensitive to *anything* being in them–a rogue eyelash can send me around the bend!) and I never stopped feeling them like they said I would. I thought about Lasik but knowing what they do kind of freaked me out & I also think I would have a hard time letting them near my eye since you have to be awake for that. Good thing I don’t really mind wearing glasses huh?

    I hope he does wonderfully! I have several friends who have had this surgery and are so thrilled. One of those “Why didn’t I do this years ago?” things.

    How exciting for him! My husband wore glasses or contacts since he was 7 years old. He had lazik a few years ago and was thrilled with the results. Only thing: It took him a while to get used to not reaching for his glasses in the morning!

    I did Lasik about a year and a half ago. What a miracle it is! You can see just as soon as you get out of the chair! He’s going to love it!

    So glad he had this done and he’s doing ok. 🙂 Hope he’s not in much pain for very long.

    I am as blind as a bat, so I have often considered this surgery. Contacts work fine for me now, but if they didn’t, I think I would do it too. I hope the surgery went great! I can’t even imagine waking up in the night and being able to see the clock (or find my glasses).
