The removal of my astigmatism and other vision artifacts has been such a dramatic change that it reminds me of a drug trip. The world literally looks different. The depth and detail is different, not just crisper, it's ... hard to describe. And the detail I can see at a distance is so profoundly improved, I didn't realize how little I could see until I could make out leaves on the trees down the street. It's astounding. It's the Wave-front that did this part. It makes the treatment better than just what contacts can do for your eyes, which is LASIK without wave-front.
My sight in my better eye is 20/20 (a smidge better really) at this point a week and a half post op. My more severe eye is much better but I'm still figuring out how to use it, it will be a while before I really know the improvement for that eye. I have a strong suspicion that I will want an enhancement. But it really might just be my brain needing to relate to what I'm seeing.
Post-op I've had some discomfort. I've found that the prednisone is what keeps that at bay. I didn't want to take the prednisone initially, but I'm glad I did and I'm not looking forward to when it runs out. But that's far enough in the future that I'm hoping it just won't be necessary anymore. The discomfort is in no way something that should keep you from the procedure. It is very tolerable and the medications and suggestions the dr. provides compensate.
I think my only real complaint is that the goggles gave me a blemish right between my eyes, above the bridge of my nose, and then kept irritating it so I had it for ages. That sucked. But I doubt that will happen to everyone. I think I just got unlucky.
