Congratulations. Glad things worked out for you.
Please be sure to keep us updated if you have any relapses or discomfort. Seems like there can be complications with this type of surgery and some people complain of light sensitivity, shift in visual acuity (declines from 20/20), etc.
I'd like to get it done, but the horror stories make me stay far, far away from the surgery. Wearing glasses isn't THAT bad where I would risk having headaches all day, every day from a botched eye job. Or having to wear sunglasses every day because the light hurts my eyes. Yeah, I know the odds are slim, but that's exactly why I'm scared. I have bad luck.
