….that my corneas are flat. Did you think I was going to say “the rain is gone?”
2009 has been a sucky year for several reasons – one of those being that I went in for Lasik surgery (PRK actually) in January of this year. I went in for an enhancement in April on my right eye, because it didn’t quite make it to 20/20. Then in September I went in for an enhancement on my left eye because it too had regressed. That’s three eyeball surgeries in a year…and unlike Lasik where you’re back to work and functioning in 3 days, PRK is a 6-8 week recovery and painful for 3-4 days after. It’s been fun, let me tell you.
HOWEVER, I went in for my follow-up appointment since this last enhancement and am FINALLY 20/20 in both eyes. That’s right – 11 months later and totally worth it. I’d recommend it to anyone, even if you have to have an enhancement…or two…because not having to fuss with contacts, rolling over at night and seeing the alarm clock without fumbling for your glasses, and being able to walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night without risk of tripping face first on the bathroom floor, is priceless.
