For the record, I hate the masthead. Expect more changes to the look of the site.
Now, down to business.
For the second year in a row, I developed a serious eye irritation in the month of May. I believe it’s allergy related, optometrist said I scratched my cornea, ophthalmologist said it was because of overuse of my contacts. No one ever named my diagnosis. I went through a week on one treatment, got sent to specialist who gave something different, then got ANOTHER prescription a few weeks later – all that to say I have spent the entire summer without contact lenses.
Glasses drive me bonkers. They slip, they slide, they get filthy, I hate them. And since this is the second year I’m dealing with this, I feel my prognosis is not great for the future.
So tomorrow I’m getting Lasik. Rather than buy yet another pair of glasses I will hate to try and keep them on my face, plus a pair of sunglasses, and all the aggravation of this if it keeps coming back every year – I’m cutting out the whole load of it.
I’m excited, and also terrified. I don’t do well in this kind of situation. Anyone who has ever heard my wisdom tooth story can attest to that. Dudes, your awake during the procedure. While someone zaps your eyeball. And don’t even get me started on how the whole procedure and healing blows my mind. They make a flap, guys. And then just leave it there. No stitches. No glue, nada. It just heals itself right up, allegedly. I’m so terrified I’m going to rub my eyes I’m duct taping those ugly glasses to my head, and ALSO tying my hands to my sides. Or maybe just oven mitts? what would you suggest?
