Glasses Free??? Zap me! LASEK Eye Surgery in South Korea

When someone asks me about LASEK eye surgery, this would be my ideal scenario:

Did you get LASEK

But this was my reality during the first few days post-surgery when questions poured in:

Laser Eyesight

I responded to the questions by promising to join the other million people who blogged about their laser eye surgeries… except (because I am who I am) I will give too much information. Take what ever snippets that you want. I hope you discover something helpful.

Date of Surgery: January 18th, 2013 around 8pm

Date of this post: February 6th, 2013 (a little more than 2 1/2 weeks later)

Surgery: Shaved of 61 mm from my right eye’s cornea and 74 mm from my left’s (more astigmatism).

**I’ll post pictures of ‘my vision before & after the surgery’ three months post-surgery… and maybe a recovering vision shot.**

Eye prescription was (as of June 8th, 2012):





O.D. (Right)




O.S. (Left)




Now that I’ve crossed the ‘lasers in the eye’ line, I’m able to:

  • Wake up and see the clock on my kitchen’s wall
  • Read signs on buildings
  • Travel to off-the-beaten paths and swim under the sea’s surface without thinking of ‘frames or contacts or… blurredness‘.

Although, it’s still far too early in the recovery process to say, but I’m happy with the progression so far and excited to see what is to come.
