I only saw halos at night during the first couple weeks. But I do notice that when I'm really tired driving at night my eyesight gets blurry a little. Like I have to blink a couple times and it clears up. Might just be from getting older though.

No Halos for me, but my sister in law still has them 9+ months later. xwhatever on the drops. Every 4 hours, and artificial tears for a month or so later.

No night issues for me but my eyes tend to get tired easily. However, that may simply be age.

I had mine done by Dr Rahmani 2.5 years ago. So far no issues, my left eye turned out slightly better than my right eye, even though I moved my left eye quite a bit during the procedure. I did the bladeless procedure with the custom eye mapping. It was worth every penny. I had a few complications, but nothing major, they just took long enough to figure out that the numbing drops started wearing off and my eyes were burning a little. I had halos at night for about 6 months, after that it went back to normal. Just for an idea of pain, I got an eyelash in my eye the day after, it hurt 10x worse than the actual procedure, so not too bad. Everyone that I know that has entered the contest on Rahmani's website has one, including me. You more or less get the best he has to offer for about 1/2 price.

Interesting information. I am 31 and have had glasses since I was roughly 6. At my last checkup several months ago I was speaking to my eye doctor about said surgery. She strongly suggested against it(for anyone) with her rebuttle being what if something were to go wrong - then you go blind. This gave me some fear.

You eye doctor is a smart cunt. Keep you coming, and terrorizes you when you think about bettering yourself, and not needing her any more.

Apply that to any medical procedure. It is true. Dead people can't see shit. Screw getting heart surgery, a broken bone set, or organ transplants!!!

You could go blind!

Pussy

My 2 blind friends still live productive lives. Tons of funny messing with them too!

Had mine done about 5 weeks ago. Two days after i turned 30. Best money ever spent, i have astigmatism and one eye was 20/40 and the other was 20/50. I now have 20/20 each eye and combined 20/15. The first 3 hours did not feel very good afterwards. After that no big deal.

Had it done 13 years ago, 20/15 in each eye. 41 years old now, and just started to need +1.00 cheaters. Best money ever spent, because I was blind as a bat when I went in, and came out being able to see w/o glasses or contacts.

I need readers in the 1.75-2.0 range.

If you end up needing readers you will find it takes a while to get used to the little things. For my entire life, any time I needed to look at something close, I would take off my glasses and get real close to see. Now I need to put glasses on and lean back. After 10 years I still tend to lean in and then realize I have to lean back. LOL

Well worth every penny.
Rhino, did you notice any diffrence when looking through firearm optics, ie a scope up close? Do you need to have your readers on to clearly see the cross hairs?
