New way of seeing things
Good-bye glasses. I finally had laser surgery on my eyes. Its nice not to come in from the cold and have your vision fog up, or when you open the dishwasher, or when you get up the middle of the night for kids you can actually see. I had PRK which doesn't heal as fast as Lasik (they scrape my eye as opposed to cut a flap, my corneas were too thin for a flap) so I am still a little blurry most of the time, I couldn't drive for a week and the first few days were kind of rough, especially at night (thanks again Linny for taking me kids, and then Tad for going down to her house so I could rest alone) Its lame though when you have tons of time and quiet, but can't see to do anything. One night I went to bed at 8:30. I couldn't read, sew, or watch TV so I decided I might as well sleep. It was a bit boring.
Now its just dry eyes at night and still lots of artificial tears, and things slowly clearing up, but I am so glad I did it (thank you Tax refund!) But by 3 months I should be 20/20 and will never look back.
