Just a few hours till my Laser eye surgery… and yes I’m a little nervous. It’s been booked for about a month, but I’ve been so busy I’ve not really given it much thought – but as it’s a approached I’ve been thinking about little else.
I’ve gone through all the material they’ve given, and it explains the whole procedure, interjected with: “This horrific thing could happen” (Eeek!) “but it’s quite rare”… It isn’t really a pleasant read, but a couple of days later you start to understand what will happen on the day and become a little more calmer about it (or possibly just forget all the bad stuff) – if you are having the procedure, don’t leave it to the last minute to read it!
I’ve been wearing glasses for about 25 years, and it’s going to be a massive shock when I no longer need them (may as well imagine it working perfectly). I’ve been putting it off for years, as the longer you leave it the safer it would become (in theory). But now I’ve spoken to many people who’ve already had it done and it gets down to this: the procedure is risky (as is all surgury), quick, painless, not particularly pleasant, but *absolutely* worth it in the end.
I’ll probably not be able to write for a couple of days as my eyes readjust (heal) but I’ll let you know how it went.
