I did it a year and a half ago. It is the best thing I have ever done for myself. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone who wants to see crystal clear without glasses or contacts.

Many places offer a police discount also. I have Fallon insurance and I got 10% off for using the Fallon surgeon also. (She is one of the top in our area, including eastern Canada.)

Let em know if you have any questions.

To answer both questions...

The cost at the Worcester Medical Center...A.K.A. Medical City...was $1500.00 per eye - after my police discount and 10% off for having Fallon insurance. (Med City is a Fallon hospital.)

It took about 12 hours before the "sandy feeling" went away. It can take up to a week before your eye sight finishes improving - there are two types of eye drops that I had to use for a while. I went in to it with 20/400 in each eye. Very bad vision. I am now 20/15 in each eye. After being so blind without my contacts, it felt like I had xray vision when I woke up the next morning following the procedure. I even noticed an improvement in vision as they reshaped my cornea with the laser.

They had me were some silly bubble looking thing on each eye the first night or so to help keep you from rubbing the eyes as the flap needs to heal.

If I can be of more help, let me know

I've had glasses since the fourth grade...I rely on them as protection now, not just to see. Even if I had the operation, I'd still wear safety glasses...so no advantage for me. Anyway, I'd be the guy who would be on the table and hear the doctor say "Oops!"...as they worked on my master eye: "Sorry you're blind, kid...here's a harness for your dog...! :lol:
