That was really cool. ^_^
I wouldn`t be able to be conscious cause I hate anything getting near my eyes except myself.

It`s not that bad, the worst part of it was the drops they used to dilate the eye. I had it done almost a year ago. They used a laser to cut the flap on my eyes and they doped us up with Valium ahead of time to keep us calm.

hahaha i`m pre-opt and we see the video all the time except now they use a laser to slice eye too. You don`t feel anything. However you can mess up your eye afterwards if you rub it while it`s still healing because they don`t stitch the flap back down obviously.

I`m pretty sure that whoever came up with the idea to do this surgery was only joking. He couldn`t have thought it would actually work.

They`ve got some incision-free procedures now. I wonder if they`re any less disturbing.

I couldn`t even finish watching this. Right after the dude said " next they cut-" I went straight to the comments. I can`t stand that stuff. I couldn`t even stand the lady trying to put my contacts in at the eye docters back when I was 10. But it still freaks me out.

what makes it so terrifying is that you`re awake throughout the surgery - at least if they knock you out you don`t have to be aware of it. i can`t imagine being awake and having a guy place metal objects on my eye and cut it.

OOOOHHH!! AAAAAWWW NOO!!!! OOOMG this made me cringe so many times. NO way, I`m getting contacts...

Also, I loled at "I watched my ex g/f have this procedure. When the little puffs of smoke came up from her eyes, i felt a brief urge to get a little straw down in there so i could huff it up. Is that wrong?"

Being partially blind suffering from RP; the knowledge that I will go through this and possibly many other treatments should a way to fix RP come about is highly dicomforting... but if it means I have perfect or near perfect eyesight, it`s a few horrifying minutes conpared to the rest of my life...

I am not worried about touching my own eye. I wear the FXeyes Sclera contacts and that is a good bit of work to get in... No It`s when other people are touching my eyes.

Gah. As Much as I want to do this, I have a wierd problem for things getting in my eye.

I can`t even put eyedrops on, my eyes just STAY open, at all costs. My optometrist was going to put eyedrops, i ended up punching her face, because i HAVE to let them stay open..

Maybe its just me always looking for improper techniques, whether this is just a recreation or not, did anyone else notice that no one was wearing gloves?
Not cool...

I`ve actually had this surgery. The technology is better now. The flap is cut by a laser instead of that shaving tool. It`s TONS safer and easier.

I used to be almost legally blind. But now, I have 20/20 vision. It`s great.

after perusing the comments I think the people who are freaked out by it are just freaked out by the thought of manipulating eyes/touching their eyes in general. I guess I`m not squeamish about it after wearing contacts for 6 years. I can touch my eye straight with my finger now w/o even hesitating

I did it in January. they have a new machine that uses a laser to create the flap instead of the blade. The whole procedure is not scary at all.

Needless to say, I went from 20/100 in both eyes to between 20/10 and 20/15 in both eyes. Best investment of my life.

I love these shows, people think I`m extremely boring when I throw them on the TV.

This was cool, still would like to get the surgery. I`ll just wait for the prices to fall a bit more. Maybe someday insurance can cover it, but I don`t ever see that happening.

EW EW EW WEIRD EW.

Eyeballs freak me out. I used to have dreams where my friends would just lose them. And when that woman who can pop her eyeballs out went on Guinness World Records, I had like a panic attack.

Eyeballs are gross. x-x

Yea that looks pretty bad but I have talked to people that went through it... apparently it is relatively painless. Even so, I`m glad I have 20/20 without glasses, surgery is never fun.
