Tomorrow afternoon, I go under the laser to fix poor eyesight that has plagued me since I was 8 or 9 years old, so I can continue to pursue my almost completed goal of taking a very active part in, um, US national security. There’s a very small risk of complications, especially if you don’t take care of yourself very well (not a problem for me.) Anyway, I’m not really sure how long I’ll be away - hopefully only the weekend.
On the off chance that I never see again, it has been a pleasure seeing all of your artwork, from the most rank novice who cannot find the OSA button to the acknowledged masters (or mastas) around here.
Well… I had a friend who’s been very happy with his surgery. Had lunch with him after a class. He had them done one at a time, and at that time, he only had one done so far. It was so funny… he was covering the not-yet-corrected eye, and saying, “I can see!!” It was like a kid in a candy store.
I’m 24, and my eyes are 20/15… so I’ve never had a problem with glasses, or poor vision… but from those I’ve known who’ve had the surgery, it’s well worth it.
Happy that it went well! I’ll probably have the same thing done in a few years (too much blendering can do that). Did they give you drugs to you could stay calm while they sliced the top of your eye off? And what happens if you move your eye during surgery???
Glad to hear it came out all good for you. My hat is off to you for doing it, I’ve considered looking into it but have a thing about lazer beams in the eyes. Freaks me out. I’m not afraid of much but the idea of someone messing with my eys bothers me.
On another note: when you get to be my age you can tell when a woman is getting mad sometimes even before they know it and I’m nearsighted.
Ah the beauty of experience.
