    Hi priya,

    I had lasik eye surgery done a couple of years back in India and have no problems so far with my vision. I had shortsightedness (power of 1.5 in one eye and 2 in other). It was very short procedure and will experience irritation for a couple of days. After 6-7 weeks of eye-drops, blurring had gone completely and had clear vision. I was so glad to throw away those heavy glasses sitting on the nose and contact lens case and those lens cleansing solutions. What a relief!! Go and take advantage of the technology!

    Half an hour before the surgery, I was given a pain-killer and then my eyes were cleaned and I supposed they sprayed some medicine into the eyes( I guess it is some anesthesia though I am not very sure). Then the lasik procedure was just 10-15 min. After that there was some irritation and watering for 5-6 hours. My eyes were covered for protection. It was a simple outpatient procedure.No pain but slight discomfort.

    The eye cup was removed the next day morning after the lasik procedure.Then there were a few follow-up tests and sent home with eye drops to administer and precautions to observe for 6 weeks. Then a checkup followed after 1 month. That's it!!!

    Hi Hemsat

    Right topic at the right time.
    I wanted to ask you some Qs. Did they do any preoperative tests for your ayes? How do they ascertain that you are a suitable candidate for the surgery ? did you have any asigmatism corrections done along with corrections for myopia(short sightedness)? What is the age limit and power limit for this surgery?
    Thanks in Advance.
