Lasik Surgery: 2 years later

I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I had my Lasik surgery performed (see the beginning of this blog to read my full experience). I went to an ophthalmologist in the middle of last year just to be sure everything looked good and he said it did. I can honestly say that I have no complaints or issues resulting from my surgery whatsoever. No dry eyes, my vision is still 20/20+, no halos, etc. My vision is completely organic and feels incredibly natural. So much so that I don’t even think about it.  There are a lot of horror stories on the internets intending to scare and dissuade you. Take these accounts for what they’re worth but also take mine into consideration. My experience has resulted in a text book perfect outcome and I couldn’t be happier. =-)


  1. Thank you very very much. Your blog has only confirmed what I have found after hours of research. My procedure is in a few weeks and I'll be comforted in knowing that the flap created during surgery will heal back to 100%, eventually. There was one part of your procedure that seemed off. You said they made you get up after the interlase and continue in a few minutes? I assumed every procedure was done in one go. Anyway, thank you very much!

  2. Hi, I'm glad you found it useful! So in my experience, yes the flap cutting step (Intralase) was separated from the lasik correction step. Being that they are 2 different machines, Boothe has everyone go through the Intralase machine first while the person first in line goes through the lasik machine. My flaps were cut and then my eyes taped shut while I was guided back to my chair to wait my turn. Pretty harmless considering the environment you're in but also a result of having the procedure done in a group. If you are all alone I image you'd just move from one machine to the next. HTH!

  3. Thank you for your lasik timeline and your myth dispellers! I had mine done 12 days ago and I don't feel any side effects what so ever. I'm guessing the technology has gotten better since you've had it? I'm just thankful for my perfect vision.
