( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have, in fact, had LASIK (hence my vote for X-Ray Vision). Before surgery, I was somewhere in the -5 diopter range. In the 20/whatever scale, that's roughly 20/4,000,000. Ok, not really, but suffice to say I couldn't see much of anything without my glasses.

After the initial screenings, consent video, etc., I went in for the surgery on June 30, 2000. I was rather nervous (I mean, really, despite the very high success ratio, they're cutting on your eyes and it's just hard to get past that), but once the procedure started it wasn't bad at all. I won't go into detail for the sake of those monks who are squeamish (if you're curious, drop me a /msg and I'll be happy to discuss it), but suffice to say there was only a slight amount of discomfort, and I was seeing one hell of a lot better immediately and even better by the next day.

This past Friday I had my 3 month checkup and I was able to easily read the 20/15 line with either eye. Am I pleased? You bet.

    [1nickt]: ugh, I stuck my head in the bass bin for 30 seconds on a dare at Ted Nugent at Hammersmith Odeon. Yes, I am 40% deaf now.
    [johngg]: My daughter is incredibly jealous of my wife who got to see The Clash at Brixton many years ago. They went to see The Vaccines there recently.
    [1nickt]: But the bands are even louder! I saw Spearhead (Michael Franti) at an outdoor show and had to walk a mile away to not feel pain in my chest! Babies were crying ... I asked the sound engineer why it was necessary to have the bass so loud and he laughed...
    [Discipulus]: but the best i attended live was Mano Negra Patchanka at Forte Prenestino .. in 1990
