Poochie, so far I'm not a candidate for any of the eye surgeries. One eye near sighted, one far sighted, astigmatisms, etc. Plus I just don't have the money to pay for surgery. I can buy many pairs of glasses over the years and it still won't add up to the cost of surgery. And I do like glasses as long as I can get lightweight ones.
claudine, most every one I know has gone back to work the next day. As for the fear itself, most people feel that same panic when someone gets near their eyes. I guess they doctors are used to it and know how to handle it?
