Bolo (or anyone else with experience), I'm thinking about getting LASIK done and had a few questions. I think I remember you having LASIK done a few years ago, so I thought I'd ask you (I'll ask the doctor too if I decide to go through with it). How long did you wait before were back to drilling? How long until you started light rolling? How long until actual sparring? What kind of eye protection did you use and for how long?

I was teaching and demonstrating techniques the very next day. I started rolling about a week or two later. I was wearing goggles for about a week, but they eventually felt so annoying when rolling that I took them off. I was rolling regular after about 3 or 4 weeks. The only thing you really need to worry about is if you get eye gouged. I can't even remember the last time I got eye gouged in training in general.

Thanks for the reply--that's good to hear. I can see your point about the goggles getting annoying.
