LASIK: One Week

Had my one week follow up on my LASIK procedure today. Good news all around. My corneas look great, and my eye doc wasn't able to see the edges of the corneal flap (which means that my eyes are healing really well), and I'm 20/20 in one eye and 20/15 in the other.

I also get to stop using the annoying eye shields they make you wear while sleeping (to prevent accidentally rubbing your eyes in your sleep) and don't have to be overly concerned about getting water in my eyes when showering (it's kinda strange to shower with swim goggles on).

So I'm still delighted with my results, and would definitely recommend that folks who are thinking about LASIK talk to their optometrist about it. I first investigated doing it around 4-5 years ago, and didn't go forward due to cost. Now I kinda wish I had, even though it would've cost me more.

BTW, if you're in Northern Virginia, and looking for a doc, my eye doc is with Northern Virginia Doctors of Optometry in Falls Church, VA. My LASIK was done by TLC.
