"During the bounteous unfurling of youth every man of sensitivity and intellect surveys all of sublime creation within and without, necessarily becoming an eye all-appraising, a craving manifest -- he wishes to be Superman or Cyclops from the X-Men. But as he ages, the ripened wisdom pluckedfrom the fields of knowledge by all from Heraclitus to Kantdispenses with this craving and replaces it with another-- there are many heroes who shoot lasers from their eyes, but it is perhaps the greatest heroes of

So todays the big surgery day! Which also means today was the last time I had to roll over to the other side of the bed upon waking up just to see my alarm clock clearly.

How many follow-up visits will I need to make, and at what cost?
Less costly procedures are likely an older and more conventional laser procedure like Standard PRK or LASIK which is done with a microkeratome (blade). T
