I've Got My 'Eye' on You

It's been so long since I've been here. In June I took the plunge and had Lasik eye surgery. What an event that has turned out to be. It's been so hard not spending as much time on the computer. I think I'm more neurotic than I was before!

While the actually surgery is basically pain-free (they numb the eye) I've had a very uncomfortable recovery. But I guess that is the key word "recovery". It doesn't happen over night. I'm told it will be 3 - 6 months before I feel/see normal again.

Don't get me wrong, I can see spectacularly compared to pre-surgery but the perfectionism of it varies from day to day. And it's really weird walking around every day with the feeling like I went on a bender and fell asleep with my contact lenses in.

If you have poor vision I definitely recommend researching and talking to lots of people who have had.
