Lasik is a success!

So it's been 24 hours since my surgery. This is how it went:
10:00am
Check into the doctor's office.

10:15am
They do the wavefront qualification. I'm wavefront approved on both eyes!

10:30am
A few more tests

11:00am
I get a cool blue hair cover and I'm sitting in the pre-op room.

11:15am
I walk into the surgery room. I get more drops and the doctor marks my eyeballs with a Sharpie. They give me a beanbag in each hand and they lay me down. At this point my heart goes from normal to intense beating.
The doctor tapes my eye lids open. He places something around my eyeball and says that everything is going to go dark for a second (this is the time they cut the blood supply to my eye so they can make a precise cut to the cornea). You then see everything go blurry and you hear the sound of the laser and smell a small hint of burning. The doctor rubs a few schwabs over my eye and places the cornea flap back and all of a sudden I can see again. He repeats the above steps for the left eye.

11:30am
They do a final checkup on the eyes. It's declared a success!

12:00pm
I'm home resting.

Overall, it was pretty cool. I highly recommend it! I guess I can compare it to getting your wisdom teeth removed - it's something that you're glad is done, but it's something you never want to do again. The recovery was very simple - just staying in bed. However, I did ignore the doctor's orders - I check my email, chatted online and even watched a DVD... ssshhh don't tell! On Saturday, I resumed by life - GOLF!!!
