Your vision will be blurry and your San Diego LASIK surgery doctor will offer you specialized dark glasses to avoid the sun on the ride home, and also advise that you rest your eyes as much as possible for the remainder of the day, so a few naps might be in order. However, the next day the world will become a new place and the crisp images you see before your eyes without the help of glasses will astound you. Most San Diego LASIK centers will want to see you for a next-day follow-up visit and as you drive towards the center, the sights of San Diego will take on a whole new look for you.
