I had my consultation for LASIK and had my procedure scheduled exactly one week later. Â The process was very quick, but I am also a person who doesn't ask many questions. Â The procedure itself was quick and only mildly uncomfortable. Â I felt alright leaving after the procedure and asked my friend driving me home to stop and get some food on our way home, since it was suggested that I eat a small meal before taking the pain and sleep aid medication I was prescribed. However while en-route the numbing eye drops used during the procedure began to ware off, and I began experiencing some fairly substantial pain. Â We then went directly home where I took my prescribed medication and attempted to sleep. Â The following hour was interesting and uncomfortable as my pain and sleep aid medication began to take effect but my pain was to much to allow me to sleep. Â I experienced some interesting hallucinations involving goats folding my laundry while enduring pain which felt like someone had thrown acid in to my eyeballs. Â Finally the medication took full effect and I fell asleep. Â I woke up groggily, maybe 8 hours later to amazingly enhanced vision. Â Far better than I had expected the first day after the surgery. Â The process comes with check ups scheduled for 1 day, 1 month, 6 months and 1 year I believe. Â At my check up the following day I was told that my eyes were healing faster than expected and that my vision had been corrected from worse than 20/400 to 20/25 in each eye individually and 20/20 together, and that they would get slightly better after some additional healing. Â The staff at the three facilities I visited during the process were all fairly friendly, and professional. Â The exam room equipment at the El Cerrito office seemed antiquated and a bit run down, which was a bit disheartening, but the surgery room was very nice. Â Overall I am extremely happy with my procedure, excluding the hour or so of hallucinations and excruciating pain following the surgery. Â If I had any recommendation it would be to take the pain medication as soon as you leave the building and hope for the best! Â I hope this helps, and good luck!
