    I got it two years ago. Paid for by you guys. Thanks.
    PRK has a worse recovery than Lasik.

    if an eye surgeon tells me i'm better off with PRK, i'm doin PRK. the eyeball is one of those things I know nothing about, and i'll trust the opinion of someone with years and years of med school over mine :bigthumb:

    Unless he is trying to pad his wallet. Seriously ADVLASIK is more precise and has a faster recovery. PRK is good, but the recovery is ridiculous. I hope you aren't prone to migraines either.

    My fingers got away from me. Normally I type by slamming my nuts on the keyboard. It takes practice, but after a while you can really nail those individual keys with a quickness.

    When you lay down under the machine, don't forget to say "Mini-me, stop humping the laser."

    When he says "Yeah, we're scheduling you for PRK on..." Punch him in the throat mid-sentence. Then tell him to try again. Repeat until Advanced Lasik replaces PRK.
