Fair play to you Shera. I am sticking with my contact lenses. I am a wuss where my eyes are concerned.

Oh thinking of getting mine done now I heard that Optilase are doing it with VHI or certainly giving a discount to members which would be great. Can I ask how much it is costing you?

you will be fine shera honestly if i can go through with it anyone can .....i brought my h2b with me and he was allowed come in and sit beside me and i squeezed the living daylights out of his hand :o0 it sounds alot worse than it actually is once the pain relief drops go in you really dont feel a thing..you will be very blurry when you come out first you cant drive or anything like that but that passes as the day goes on best thing to do is just go home and try and sleep

Yeah my Mam is coming in with me, I am excited nervous and scared all in one go! I suppose just worried about the nightime vision but with the glasses I have at the moment there is a starbust effect with lights in the nightime so I reckon I can handle it. I only do 30 mins dark driving Monday - Friday in the winter time so you have to weigh it all up.

yea the nighttime driving is a bit dodgy alright, sometimes i do see double like theres two lanes of traffic coming for me,.,but if it gets really bad just pull over and relax your eyes but its only if im really very tired so you should be fine
