I had PRK (which is basically Lasik for people with really terrible vision) and I've been pretty happy with it. I did it 7 years ago I think. I recently got glasses for night driving and I've been warned that I'll need reading glasses when I hit 40, but at least they won't be bifocals.

 

As for the actual surgery, they gave me valium and a little stuffed turtle to hold and it was fine. That was the part I was most worried about and it wasn't bad at all. Then you just spend the next two days in the dark and you're basically fine. The healing time was longer for PRK than Lasik, but still worth it.

IMPORTANT T-SHIRT UPDATE!

 

OK, going to get a jump start on things for the t-shirts.

 

Assuming you are still in the club, send me a PM with the subject T-Shirt Club and include your choice of size (small through 4XL) and your mailing address.

 

I'll start a list and assuming you all post in September, October and November (or win another contest before then) you'll get your shirt. Sizes are first-come first-serve.

 

I'm doing this early so I know the quantities of each size I'll have left for giveaway and selling and if I need to order more of a certain size.

Ten years with no glasses seems like a good thing.  What happens after ten years?  Do it again?  Eyesight slowly reverts (or maybe declines from day #1)?  Eyesight is worse than before the surgery?  How much does lasik cost?

 

After about 10 years, I'll need glasses to correct my up close vision (which currently is very good), so I guess you could say my condition will reverse. It's apparently the nature of my eyes. Lasik is easily a couple grand and my insurance won't cover the doctor I'd want to go to for it, so it would be completely out of pocket. When my contacts + solutions run me roughly $400 over 5 years (and half of that is covered by insurance), not worth it to me for only 10 years' worth of benefit.


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

Shout out to the member who PMed me their address and t-shirt size despite not being in the club. Nice try :P

The shirts (at least the first batch of them) are scheduled to be delivered Tuesday. I’ll post pics when I get them along with the “extra” item exclusively for club members :)

Brad, perhaps we need another list of folks who are still in the 'Club' once August is out this Saturday. Where has the month gone? :confused:

 

Oh, and info sent :)

What a crazy month it’s been!

My Christmas lists got bigger...using DNA , I found my biological parents! My bio mom has passed away but I have 2 half-sisters from her and my biological father is still alive. He didn’t know I even existed so we have been getting to know each other. I have 1 half-sister from him. So long story short...I started 2018 as an orphaned only child and now I have a father again along with 3 sisters, a step mom, 2 nieces, a nephew and aunts, uncles and cousins!
