Had mine done a couple of years ago and could notice incredible difference on way home from Doctor. Hope you have same result. Only negative is the daily routine of ointment applications.

Good luck Charlie. I had mine done, one 15 years ago and the other 8. For me, it was one of the best things that happened to me, as I no longer had to wear glasses and could see to drive at night again. I hope it turns out as well for you as it did for me.

Same here, Charlie. It's an amazing procedure! You might only wear glasses for your "close up" work.

Best of luck on this one and the second!!

Regards....Dick.

Charlie,


I had my right eye done last month; the difference will be both noticeable and appreciated.

You will love the new vision Charlie! I remember coming home from the first eye job. When I looked at our refrigerator the "new eye" saw white and the "old eye" saw yellow. I could even read the newspaper without glasses again.

Chinese eye doctor told me, "You have Cataract". I said "No, it's Ford".

I had mine done a while back....incredible! Make sure you follow the medication instructions to the letter. I know of a lady that didn't and wound up blinding herself.

Charlie, I had that done two years ago, both eyes. It was such an amazing thing to be able to see so we'll again, w/o glasses, like I could when in my 20's. It was so quick and painless.

I had my left eye done several years ago. Absolute waste of money. Vision no better in that eye. Can see better out of the right eye. Dr keeps wanting to do the right eye. I told him to do the impossible to himself.

Had both done a couple years ago, and it was easy and made a huge difference. What they forgot to mention is that a pretty high percentage of folks will experience some fogginess after a while (about a yr in my case). So I had to go back and have one eye zapped with a laser for about 15 seconds. Dr. just moved the laser around and broke up the stuff that was causing fogginess. It was simple.
