One year ago today, I had Lasik Surgery.
(laser-assisted intrastromal in-situ keratomileusis)
I'd worn glasses since I was 6 years old.
They were so thick I had to have a special
compressed glass, so they wouldn't look
like coke bottles. If you go way back to
I was so bad, when I got up in the morning,
I had to put my glasses on to go to the
bathroom to put my contacs in.
But not any more!
Now I awaken and can see
the large clock on my night stand
It's quite amazing how they do it!
It's 20 minutes and your on your way home.
Back to work the next day!
First they do all these tests a week or so before the surgery, to make sure your a candidate for Lasik. Mainly your Cornea has to be thick enough so they have
enough room to remove and reshape the Cornea.
to cut a flap across your Cornea, then they peel the flap back and bombard the surface with a Laser to reshape it. Once that's done, they carefully put the flap back and smooth it .
No stiches! Your done! And your awake during it too!
So you see everything!
Your vision is blurry at first. they give you something to sleep, and you go home. When you wake up hours later, you vision has improved. The next day perfect!
The eye heals very quickly!
But old habits die hard. For the next couple of months, I kept trying to take my, not there glasses off, to get into the shower.
The miracles of modern technology!
