Weird void appeared just below the center of my vision in my left eye. It wasn't like black, or even gray, it was like there was a round spot of nothing at all where my vision just abruptly ended, with maybe a slightly flashy fuzz around it when I looked around.>they warned me about that when i got my glasses script
You must be pretty fucking nearsighted then, it only happens to people who are old, or people who are highly myopic. The edge of the lens in your eye is real thin.>did you get them melted back on with the laser?
Maybe, sorta. I'm not 100% sure on how the procedure is done. They did some preventative reinforcement welds with a laser on my right eye, because they saw it was coming there as well (and eventually it did, the spot was in the upper left corner of the field of view of that eye).
They adjust the lens I think, drain out some of the liquid slipping in where it shouldn't, then fit a rubber band around the circumference of the eye to alter its shape, finally pumping in some nitrogen inside of the eye to make sure it has an appropriate internal pressure. You can actually see this bubble of gas inside of your eye, and it'll be there for a couple of weeks afterwards, if you turn your head down, you can look straight through it. It gets absorbed with time.
The healing is fucking pain, the eye was so swollen that I couldn't actually shut my lids over it, because my eyewhite was sagging out between it. It wasn't until like maybe two weeks after getting out of the hospital that I could finally shut that eye. Then the same story for the other eye, months later.>did they fix your vision while they were at it?
lmao no, Jesus, fuck no. The consequence of this surgery is that you get even more nearsighted, I can see clearly, the distance of my wrist to the tip of my fingers, then it gets blurry.
But hey, I think if the question is if you want to get more nearsighted or if you want to go totally blind, most of us would pick the former
