Do you want to turn it into a bet & up the odds?
I don't have any issues just see the possibility of making some easy money.
No, I'm saying that by even suggesting this and then inexplicably wanting to take it further, as though I would have any remote interest in doing so, you have issues. Whether you realise it or not is another thing.

I am amazed you won't put your money where your mouth is, you like to bully people but won't risk 100 CHF when challenged. Quite amusing really.

This is really one of those WTF moments. I'll leave you to your, erm, whatever it is you're doing.

Re: Laser Eye Surgery in Zurich

Long overdue update of this thread.

I had the eye surgery back in March 2016, regular bladed LASIK at Focuslaser next to HB. The procedure was, while not painful, definitely less than pleasant to say the least, it's a rather odd feeling to smell your eye burning and then feel it being cut into. Ugh. Focuslaser was surprisingly good, the staff are lovely and the doctor was competent. I would recommend them.

I had a week of fairly strong discomfort after the surgery with feelings of grittiness and sensitivity to light, and then a couple of months of religiously applying eye drops. I suffered initial blurriness and it just felt weird, with the occasional headache, as my brain struggled to get used to the corrected vision. I also suffered initial halo'ing in bright lights at night, but this has receded and my night vision is actually pretty damn good, as good as before if not better. I was also very worried about rubbing my eye or that I would have to be super careful, but everything seems to have healed as well as I could have hoped and now I just do everything I used to do.

I feel that my final results are the best I could have reasonably hoped for, I no longer need glasses to read, use a computer, or in daily life. Is my vision 100% perfect? Nope, my left eye will always be naturally weaker than my right, especially when I close my right eye and use only my left, but luckily my strong right eye compensates for that and when both are open my vision is sharp. Sure my eyes will deteriorate as I age, but while I'm still reasonably young this is exactly how I want to enjoy life, free from glasses.

Best 3600chf I have ever spent.

Re: Laser Eye Surgery in Zurich

I had LASIK at Focuslaser in September and so far so good. As Richdog said, the procedure was not painful but I found it quite uncomfortable. I found that looking after one's eyes after the procedure to be the most annoying part, I was extremely paranoid about rubbing my eyes and dislocating the flap. I was very cautious for the first 4 weeks but gradually as my eyes started to feel normal again these worries subsided.

I found the focuslaser team to be really nice and professional, the 24 hours, 1 week and 1 month checks went absolutely fine. My left eye is better than 20/20 and my right eye is slightly weaker, but still 20/20 I believe. I used the single-dose artificial tears for about 6 weeks after the procedure and occasionally use them now (perhaps twice a week).

I would definitely recommend the team at focuslaser, but would advise anyone thinking to get LASIK that the drop schedule and worrying about one's eyes for the first 6 weeks can be quite stressful. My other half got PRK about a year prior, and while it is extremely painful the first few days, there is much less worry about flap dislocation after.

Re: Laser Eye Surgery in Zurich

Thanks for the update Richdog, pleased to hear it went so well

How you describe your experience is so similar to how I recall my own! The smell and the sensation of melted eyeball rolling down my cheek still haunts me haha.
