fellow LASIK enthusiasts,
i am considering having wavefront LASIK done to correct my vision. (my physical vision, not the inner force that guides me through this life - i correct that with bourbon.) i would like to hear from those of you that have either had, or seriously considered the procedure. here's what i'd like to hear from you:
a) when you had it done.
b) the "working" diameter of the LASER used, in mm, and the diameter of the blend area they used. (mine would be 6.5mm and 8mm respectively.)
c) your pupil diameter, in a dark room. (not after dilation drops were added.) (mine is 6.25mm)
d) the amount of correction performed. (the diopter of your prescription. for instance, i'm roughly -3.25 in both eyes.)
e) your cornea thickness prior to the surgery. (i'm at 530 microns, thinnest point.)
f) your cornea thickness after the surgery. (im around 480 microns, minimum.)
g) your rate of recovery - how soon did you feel safe:
ii) riding your bike
iii) doing either of those at night.
h) any other feedback you might have for me, particularly in regard to needing a follow-up enhancement, and night vision.
i'm concerned about the usual stuff, namely aberrations imparing my night vision, and especially those severe enough that riding at night is unsafe. secondly, i'm interested in your recovery period. i'm planning to have the work done in the first week of april, and would like to be able to do a long-ish weekend ride 2-3 weeks later. i'm trying to get my expectations properly set for this.
