I had a really high prescription. I had a, it was a minus 9. Uh horrible. It was coke bottle glasses. Even after school, even after learning the process, and all that good stuff, I was still scared. And I actually saw a patient who was actually a very similar prescription as mine before LASIK. I saw him at the one day post-op, and he was in tears because he was actually able to see 20/15, and he had never been able to see that. So I was like, you know what, if he can do it, so can I. And just seeing all these happy post-op patients, like I can do it. What put me at ease wasn't just the medication, but also meeting the doctor beforehand and just talking to him and going over the procedure. That really helped ease my fears, and then the day of the surgery, the staff was just awesome. You know they really calm you down, and you know it was an amazing experience. You know I would recommend it to anyone who's on the border, on the fence, of wanting to do it. I wish I would have done it sooner, that's what everybody says, but no, the freedom of waking up and not wearing glasses anymore - amazing!
