But now getting back into playing tennis and competing seriously I have thought-wow what would it be like to not have to wear these! I am curious how long the recovery is? Sounds like you have to follow directions for sure. Was there any pain? And did you have to take time off work/sports etc at all? Thanks again it's great to hear from someone who has taken this path. My period of research is definitely is starting!
My recovery period was about 2 weeks long. No pain (except for the one time I didn't take my drops...) and even that wasn't too bad. More scary than anything. I got my procedure done on a Friday, and went back to work the next Thursday. Soccer was my main sport at the time, and I took a month off due to it's level of contact. Two months later I was up to 20/20.
