Well, Dear Reader, I go for my consulation August 9th and if everything goes according to plan, I will have LASIK surgery on August 11th. The surgeon was recommended by some other eye surgeons for whom I do some side work. They don’t do this surgery or I would certainly be using them.
I’ll admit to being a bit nervous about it. This’ll only be the second surgery I’ve ever had. I’ve read up on the different procedures, costs, benefits, side effects, and risks. There are risks associated with everything, but honestly Dear Reader, I’m sick of glasses and contacts. I’d like to wake up one morning and actually see the things around me without my glasses. I’d like to be able to get some cool shades or swim with my eyes open underwater. I’ve worn glasses/contacts for so long I don’t remember what it’s like to not have them.
Yes, I understand that I might need reading glasses, but I’d gladly wear them if that’s the only time I’d need them. Hey!?! Maybe I can even get one of those cool chains to hold them like my Bubbie used to wear. Now that would be stylin’.
