Cost was £2000 total, had surgery on Saturday morning, was back at work on Tuesday. (bank holiday weekend)
Everyone's recovery is different but below is my experience.
The day of the surgery (after its complete) you wear protective contact lenses and have eye drops every hour, you can see but its like everything is underwater. you wear sunglasses all day and try and stay in the dark with eyes closed if possible.
Next day you go back in for a check up in the morning, they take the lenses out and you can see pretty good, but there is still some blurriness. you can start to look at phone screens etc. at night the glare from lights is pretty bad. Eyedrops every 2 hours or so.
3rd day vision is really picking up and any blur is small. felt i could go to work if i had too. eyedrops still recomended every 2 hours (prevent infection etc)
After one week i had my second check up, vision was already better than 2020, still some glare at night but assured it will diminish over time.
Now one month in vision is great, i don't suffer dryness or any discomfort, in fact the whole process was painless and without dryness. glare at night is still there but not bad, just noticeable.
Downsides are, after the surgery for a week you cant touch/rub eyes, its pretty sore if you do. this isnt really a problem but years of going to bed and taking glasses of means i kept punching my sore eyes when i went to bed trying to take of glasses that didnt exist.
I also keep pushing glasses that dont exist up my nose and looking like a weirdo in the process.
But life without glasses is awesome.
