If you know me, you know I got Lasik last Wednesday. I was not nervous going in. I thought I would be, but I wasn't. It was something I had been wanting to do for about 3-4 years. I'm glad I waited because my surgeon told me the technology even in the last year has advanced to the point where my astigmatism could be corrected, or at least improved.
Well, we are at the "corrected -not-improved" point. I am seeing better than I was without glasses BEFORE the surgery, but not as good as when I had glasses. Yes, I am frustrated. Yes, I am impatient. Yes, I am developing a hunchback from having to physically get so close to my computer screen at work and my scrapbooking stuff at home. But it's like Greg said when I was whining just hours after my surgery: "Soooooooo you want to see like a hawk and a bald eagle COMBINED. YOU HAD LASER SURGERY ON YOUR EYES! It's going to take awhile." Bless his heart for keeping this diva grounded!
But you know what? I have no regrets. There are a few points of light (sorry - I just watched a Golden Girl episode where President George Bush Sr. came to their house; although, all you saw was his hand so you know it wasn't him!)
- It hasn't even been a week since my surgery. Vision tends to improve with time after the surgery.
- I haven't had any "halo" vision or scratchy eyes or headaches.
- The surgeon can do an enhancement (go in a 2nd time) if necessary.
- Worst case scenario: I'll have to wear my glasses again. And that's ok. Like I said, I have not regrets. If I hadn't tried, I would have never known.
