Seattle LASIK Reviews


So, this morning I was pretty nervous about the procedure. All the doctors and technicians said not to worry, but being in nursing school and having read thoroughly all the things that could go wrong... I was still nervous. They gave me 1/2 a Xanax before the procedure, making me feel heavy and sleepy. When I went into the Procedure Room, I met the technicians- with no glasses on ( so all I really know about them is their voices) and they had me lay down and gave me a stuffed animal to hold and put a blanket on me. When Dr. Womack entered, he talked me through everything, everybody kept saying I was doing great, take little breaths and checking to see if I was ok.

The procedure itself was a so easy. I was imagining everything being terrible, so maybe that's why it seemed so easy, but the most awkward part (making the flap), just felt like pressure, like a suction cup or something, on my eye. They countdown in 5's from 15 seconds for each eye while the laser cuts the flap. I felt a slight tingle/almost unnoticable pin prick when the laser stopped. If you ever have had an eyelash in your eye with contacts that is at least 50 times more painful. I even said out loud, "that's it?" because the doc told me ahead of time that part would be the most awkward part. Everything else was effortless. I didn't feel the laser actually shapping my eye. When the doc woud "aspirate" up the extra fluid around my eye from time-to-time it felt like trying to move a contact around. When the doc replaced the flaps, it was just interesting, no pain, but I could tell he was taking something, like a spatula and smoothing out the surface of my eye. I asked later and he used a sterile brush.

Then I was done. They gave me another 1/2 of Xanax, rechecked my eyes in a lil machine real quick and had me stand up and walk back to Pat in the waiting room. I could see better than before when I had no glasses on immediately after the surgery. When I got in to the car, the numbing drops were wearing off, so I could feel stinging in my eyes, so I just kept them shut most of the ride home. When I got home I just collasped into bed, asked pat to bring me some drops a few times, but now I feel rested (Xanax wore off) and can practically see. Some areas of my vision seem blurry, but this is only hours after my surgery. I can tree branches from my window, the time on my alarm clock across the room, and can even type this on facebook. I'd say that's pretty awesome for a girl who couldn't see anything unless it was about 6 inches from my face before.

Also, I highly reccomend going to Dr. Womack at the TLC eye centers in Bellevue. He's got over 30 years of experience and many good reviews.
