To Eden and others interested in trying out PLSC:

if you attend their monthly seminar, the eye exam is free. Its always published on strait times. if not just mention that a former patient introduced you for the eye exam to get the eye exam fees waived. If you need can mention Nicholas Chung as your referee to see if they waive your exam fee(i get no commision or any benefits for referring)

it went all right and basically i was recommended the bladeless method (not wavefront).
now i just need to decide within 1 month of the test if i want to proceed.

did a few tests in his clinic as well as one located in the dental clinic a few floors down.

let u know if i do go for the operation.

how did your eye test end up in the dental clinic?

also, if you made the decision on that day, how soon could you have gone for the surgery? same day? next day?

apparently the LASIK and dental clinic are of the same group. A few of the eye testing machines located in a room within the dental clinic. The fastest that you can schedule would be same day just go early cos the test is about 3 hours. When I complete my test it was already closing time.

test is around 3 hours, and the op is around 2 hours (including rest time), right? Should be 'do-able' in a day?

most of the time for the test is to wait for your eyes to dilate. 3 hours is about there, maybe less.

actual op only like 10 minutes. one morning all done. but rest is important as eyes need to recover. so you will use the bladeless method. the recovery should be faster and less risk.

basically only thing stopping you from playing golf the next day is that you cant shampoo your hair for 2-3 days.

i was told that recovery is fast and by next day should have be at least 80%.

Recovery is pretty fast from my colleague experience but full recovery take longer. She managed to get behind the wheel on the night of her op. But one thing was her eyes kept getting eye wax for the whole week.

Yea no issue for you to go to for golf the following day.. just try to keep out of dusty areas and keep your shades on.. also, u gotta keep dripping your antibiotic drops..

personally, i went to the range the following day after my followup at the clinic. Drove on my own too.. just be careful.. and watch the speed.

Thanks for the offer, Eden, but I only touch down on Friday morning, and already have an 8.40 am appointment at SNEC. If the eye exam takes around 3 hours, I won't be done till noon, earliest, which means that I probably won't have enough time to do the surgery the same day unless I get it done at SNEC.

Would prefer to get it done at PLSC tho...

just had my lasik op yesterday at 2pm at PLSC
the wait was really long but the actual op was fast (15mins).

i could see immediately after the op but felt irritation in the eye.
was given sleeping pill and slept for 12 hours before waking up for the eye drops.

first thing that i did this morning was to turn on the golf channel Smile
WOW!! first time that i could watch TV without my glasses Smile

1st review is today and i still feel slight irritation in the eye which i guess is normal.

cant wait for my game tomorrow.

Congrats Eden! Remember to use your saline drops and antibiotic drops religiously and avoid dusty places.. If you're going for game.. watch th sun (wear shades) and especially those bunker shots.... the last thing you want is sand in your eyes!
