Emergency Laser Eye Surgery :( - April 19th 2012, 09:00 PM

I had to go into A&E today because I started losing the vision in my right eye. Got checked out and the doctors said I've got a small hole in the centre of my retina at the back and I need emergency laser surgery to repair it. It's tomorrow I'm so scared and freaked out. I don't like people being too close to me I panic :/

Anyway has anyone ever had this before and what does it involve? I'm really freaked out because I don't know what they're gonna do. And does anyone know the recovery time for it? my exams are starting soon and I need to be revising :L

There may not always be a direct answer to a problem, but there is always a way to get through it.
Strength is the best quality of the human mind and body, and I believe everyone has it; whether they believe it or not. Look for that tiny glimmer of hope deep inside yourself and once you've found it let it blossom, glow and illuminate your life.

I'm always here if anyone wants to talk.

Wow, i'm sorry to hear that! It's no surprise that you're worried.
I don't know about the procedure, but I'm wishing you luck for a successful surgery and hope that you're okay

The surgery was okay. Wasn't as bad as I thought.
Have to go back in a week to see if it's worked.

Aw, sorry I missed this and wasn't able to help!
So glad it went well though. Feel free to post again after you find out if it worked or not

Closing at OP's request.
