Had Advanced Surfacw Ablation Friday......
 
Man, the pain is harsh! feels like flashburn mixed with OC spray. It feels a lot better now though. Anyone else endured this? I hope i never need to wear prescription glasses again!

Good luck! I hope you are good too.

Good wishes sent your way hoping for a full recovery and good outcome.
Is it safe to assume that lasik wasn't an option in your case?

Ouch! It will be way worth it.

I had the turbinates in my nose reamed out years ago but it can't be the same. It hurt but not like eyes can hurt. Scabs blew out of my nose the size of Palmetto bugs.

On the upside, I have never bought a squirt bottle of nose stuff since and I can breath out of both nostrils. Nice sensation after forty years of restriction. You'll be happy.

the doctor said I could do lasik but that it would only be for mono vision. that was not an option for me personally as a pilot and commercial driver, i need my depth perception.

That sounds painful but it seems it was worth it! My eyesight is improving daily but still seems like looking through a scuba mask filled with water and milk.
