Hi dr rick . Thoughts on lasik?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Is it scary?

It is not scary at all.

It is very safe and very stable.

You will get excellent vision from LASIK

Here is a cool video about it.

I see . You know what really scares me tho ? Firstly the steel clasp put into the eyes and the flap which will be drawn on the cornea . It's not the laser which scares me .
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
of course I am scared of the pain or any pressure put into the eyes
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also I got the clinical notes from my dilated eye exam which has been certified clear .It says : Multiple lattice , CBF , No peripheral holes or tears .That's it .

Your dilated eye exam does not have anything in it that would block you from having safe LASIK.

If you are afraid of the flap then you can have PRK....it is lasik without the flap. But...everyone gets the lid speculum -- AKA: The Steel Clasp!.

Make sense?

Does the flap hurt? And what's CBF?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
If the flap doesn't hurt and the steel clasp doesn't hurt I'll go for LASIK :)
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
What's CBF? I was only told about lattice and then referred to the nuero . Just curious
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Dr rick are you still here?

I've been out snowmobiling for the last few days -- last run of the season :(
