Hi Guys!!!!! Just to let you know that I will be getting corrective laser eye surgery Thursday morning. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I went for my consultation and I will be getting the abrasion eye surgery done. I don't know if any of you had this done.

I'm not going to be able to drive for 5 days and no computer, reading, watching television, sewing, being outside for that period of time. It's going to be tough not being able to do anything but sleep and listen to the tv and music. I'm very active so that is the problem I'm going to run into and also not being able to post with you guys. I guess I got to do what it takes for the eyes to heal and no more glassess!!!!! :D

Hey DW, of course we'll miss you while you're offline, but I'm sure it'll be well worth it in the long run. Of course you could have someone read it all to you, but for goodness sakes, don't let any outsider read what goes on in chat, lol.

Good luck, DW. Hope all goes well. I know how scary corrective surgery can be, but just take it easy afterward and do like your Doc instructs and you should be fine. See you on the boards again soon enough.:)

Oh Hell no!!!! What happens in this forum stays in this forum. I will wait patiently for when I can post again. But, of course, some of these post are very entertaining even for someone who isn't familiar with the forum. That's how I got baited in.

Hey Sinister - thanx for the good luck. I will listen to the Doc and go crazy in the meantime. I've been wearing glasses since I was 8 years old.

Best of luck on your surgery. My husband has had problems with his eyes so I know what you're going through. The good news is that since we're both in NJ, and I have free long distance, if you get the urge to know what's going on, let me know and I can read the newest posts to you. That way no "outsiders" will be involved and you'll stay up to date. We'll all be sending plenty of positive, happy thoughts your way.

Good luck on your upcoming surgery. Please do exactly as the doctor says. I know several folks who have had the laser, lasik, and abrasion procedures. Each with a significant change in their eyesight. A couple of them did not follow the "no reading/computer" part and it took much longer for them to heal.

You will be fine and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

They sent me the video on what they do for corrective eye surgery. After watching it, I couldn't do. I still have my glasses. They don't put you to sleep when they do this. I can' stand when someone puts anything around my eyes. But good luck my friend.

Thanx you guys for all your support. There is a lot of love here in this forum. The surgery is only going to take 10 minutes and I am getting the abrasion surgery and they do give you a valium for nerves. I am feeling anxious because I never had surgery or even broken bones. I'm not afraid of anything in my eyes because I used to wear contacts when I could. I'm going to be fine, sore but fine.

You guys are the bestest!!!!
