Yesterday I had laser surgery to correct my vision. More specifically, I had LASIK surgery... Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis.

The surgery took less than five minutes in all. They numbed my eyes with some drops then I went in the "operating" room.

It took about 20 seconds to cut a flap in my eye, then 18 seconds with the laser, then another 20 seconds to put the flap back. Then onto the next eye.

To think that I payed nearly two grand for this makes me feel a little ripped off, although I can see perfectly and there was absolutely no pain, and just minor discomfort for four hours afterward.

If I had my time back, I would have saved a bundle of money and instead just purchased the LASIK@Home kit.
Seems legit I s'pose?

Matt goes home for x-mas but he's coming back.

The eye surgery was a great choice and all that shit online is BS. Maybe there were problems a few years ago but I don't think so now.

If you do ever do it, just make sure to ask the doctor a lot of questions. I even wanted the details on the laser machine and choose the one that was German built and engineered. It's a "wavefront" machine also known as "custom lasik." Much better than the machines they had even just 5 years ago.

Anyway, I sound like a commercial.

Don't be a pussy. Stick some lasers in your eye's b'y...
