Hi All,

Ever since I shot my mouth off by saying that you can't have laser surgery
without anesthetic, I have been perplexed that some of you responded that you

Now I am wondering how many laser "zaps" you were getting at a sitting?  Since
my Retinopathy was very advanced (huge globs of blood and almost no usable
vision), I was getting 60-70 zaps at a sitting.  Does this play a factor in
why I HAD to have anesthetic??  Were some of you only getting a couple of zaps
at a time?

I had four of these treatments which held me in check for about six weeks.  He
tried a couple more times and then we went on to Vitrectomies.
