LASIK Eye Surgery – My Experiences – Day 30
I finally hit one month since I got LASIK so here are my experiences on Day 30.
I had to make the long drive back up to the city to see Dr. Boothe’s associates to get my check up. I am just happy that I do not have to pay extra for all of these post op visits.
This is wonderful news for only one month out.
What is even better is that I thought I was seeing pretty great already so knowing that there is still room for improvement is fabulous.
Stop Using the Drugs
They told me to stop using the last of the prescription medicine in one day because the eyes have healed nicely. I asked about the little flap of cells and was told that it was almost all gone.
I do not need medicated eye drops to take care of the flap as the cells die out and go away on their own.
The doctor told me that I could try to ease off on the artificial tears because I did not need them any more. He said I should just use them if I felt that the eyes were feeling a bit dry but they were not mandated to be used every 30 minutes anymore.
I still have a lot of capsules left so I think I will continue using the tears for a little bit longer. My eyes do feel a little dry at times but I do not feel the need to moisturize every 30 minutes like before.
He also said that I could stop using the eye ointment if I wanted too. It is simply a moisturizer so there is no medication involved. It is very cold at night and I have to run the heater so I will keep using the night ointment because my eyes do feel very dry at night.
They put in the numbing drops and checked my eyes for pressure because one of the medicines, the Lotemax, raises the pressure in your eyes.
I walked out of the office in about 25 minutes, put some eye drops in when I got to the car and drove home to Honey.
I can see very well and I must say it was WELL worth the money I am paying.
By the way I got the bill from the procedure and the payment is $102 per month instead of $150 as they had predicted earlier. I will be paying just the minimum on this account because it is at 0% interest for the remainder of the offer terms.
I have other medical bills from the time I had to stay in the hospital that I am paying for. I also have upcoming surgery at the end of February that I will have to pay for too. Those bills will not be at 0% so they are the priority here.
