More on my experience on lasik:
Optimax offered free check up, and they found that I was suitable for tissue saving intralasik due to my high astigmatism (300+!) and that cost RM3200/eye. Some are lucky and they can go for cheaper option. Of course they let you decide, but I agreed with their suggestion.
I did the op the very next day. They provided withe pre and post procedure instruction and a medical kit containing sterile artificial tears, eyedrops (antifungal/steroids). U can't drive after that, plus u can't really see after that... sunglasses please!
It's done under sterile condition, with the laser burning... it smells like burning flesh. To my fellow healthcare workers: smells like when diathermy burns the skin/ muscle *yummy bbq smell*. It stings like h311 for few hours afterwards, but later that night I was already back to my normal life. They'd give 3 days MC, then life goes on. Had a follow up the next day, the very next week and a month later.
