Hi Nos

As with the others, I also had this done in Nov 2007 (the full monty option at Ultralase in Covent Garden) and it was money well spent . I went through almost identical experiences to you, and it all settled down really well after the 6 weeks they said it would take. Night vision was similar to yours by the sound of it at first, it isn't completely 100% (a few stars round bright lights etc) but it's very minor and doesn't detract from anything.

Having the treatment has really improved my enjoyment of the things I love - climbing, skiing, boating etc - it is just so much easier not having to worry about glasses icing or steaming up!

And yes it does take a while to stop searching for your glasses first thing in the morning doesn't it?! - I still sometimes go to take mine off before I jump in the shower

Apparently I've stopped flailing for the glasses in the morning now when I wake up.

Quick update for those that were following it.

I had the 1 month post-op checkup on Friday. I now have slightly better than 20/15 vision,which is slightly better than I had with glasses on. Dryness is going away slowly and I'm barely using eye drops now.

All is good-and I can use the boat again at the weekend!
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
