Today I got LASIK. I was nervous leading up to it, because it is lasers in my eye! But contacts started causing irritation throughout this year, so I decided to take the plunge.
The doctor was very forceful in yanking my head around and telling me to stop moving. It was comforting to have someone be so authoritative, even if they were scolding me.
Then a brief moment of relief, followed by the dread that now it is time to do the other eye.
My eyes are still bruised (you can see in the photo) but I can see pretty far already. It hasn't sunk in yet that I will not have to wear contacts or glasses in future.
