It’s less than two weeks left and I’m doing the countdown to my laser eye surgery. The treatment that I’m going to get is called LASEK (No Cut) and the healing time is about a week, give or take. I’m totally excited about it, but at the same time I’m nervous because it’s such a big deal to do a surgery for the eyes. I have pretty bad eye sight today so it would be such a blessing to be able to see properly without having to correct it with contacts or glasses. Waking up in the morning and be able to see the clock and where I put my mobile phone. To be able to take a shower and see where I’m shaving without having to put glasses on (that are steamy and watery). To not have to think about taking extra contacts with me if I spontaneously need to spend the night somewhere other than home. There are so many scenarios I can think of that would make my life easier, so I can’t wait to get this done!
My plan is to make a video journal for each day after the surgery so I can remember the progress if anyone ever wants my advice on it afterwards. I’ve been asking people around me at the office if they’ve done it, so I can get some advice, but usually they only remember the result and have forgotten how it felt like during the first few painful days.
So when I’m off to Stockholm for work during next week, I’m going to look for some nice sunglasses I could use right after the surgery. I would need to sit with those on both indoors and outdoors, especially if it’s going to be sunny – even during winter time.
I’ll come back with more details and progress regarding this in two weeks.
Peace and Love,
