So before I was T1, my only health problem under the sun was being ridiculously nearsighted. We’re talking just crazy levels of nearsightedness. Since the age of 10, I haven’t able to function without glasses or contacts, and while I’ve responded very well to contacts and now wear them ALL the time, I’ve always been interested in LASIK.
I just returned from my initial consultation appointment, and it turns out I’m an excellent candidate for custom LASIK. Of course, this is the more expensive procedure, but they are my eyes and all. With my good A1C (which the eye doctor actually knew to ask about, 1 point for the eye doctor), my switch to the pump, and my relatively short time since diagnosis, they weren’t concerned about my diabetes as a factor either.
Has anyone out there had LASIK? I’d love to hear some feedback, positive or negative. Anything I should watch out for, questions to ask, general warnings or concerns are very welcome!
