Mariah has the extra eyelashes.  Does anyone know about how much the freezing method is for this?  Healing process and time?   Can't believe she's 7 and it's just found.

Dixie had this. It was a snap for her. It does lighten the area where they do it but that is it. It didn't grow back. She even got hair under her eyelids, like retrievers get. She is such a fluke. Anyway, she came through it all really great. The only worry is putting them under. She has a great opthamologist so it wasn't as worrisome. Do be sure that an opthamologist does it. Good luck!!!

I was told that they might be able to do it with just a light sedation.  I would love to shoot for that.  How much did it cost you to have yours done?  Was it both eyes or just one?

Gosh, Laura that was a few years back. I think it was about $800? Something like that. And yes it was for both eyes. It might have been more. It is more expensive here.

Thanks Nic.  I'm hoping that both eyes will be about that price or lower.

Good luck. They had to put Dixie way out as she had that hair under her lids and then they also did along her lids, too.

Did Mariah have the laser eye surgery? How did she do?

No, not yet.  Was planning on doing it within a couple weeks when we had some plumbing problems.  BIG plumbing problems that blew out our money supply.  Going to take a few more weeks.  Her eye looks great though.
