It’s done and I can see again! The procedure was very interesting. There was no pain associated with it. The worst sensation was a bit of pressure on my eyeball when the intralase cone was pushed on to it to hold the eye still. The whole thing took about 10 minutes, and even then I could read the clock across the room.
I’m going back for my next day checkup in about 2 hours and will post a progress report after that. But my starting point was 20/1000, so anything close to 20/20 is going to have me doing happy dances for quite a while!
