… And laser.
Today I will be having my second ever elective surgery (the first being my wisdom teeth) and this one is on my eyes.
As it turns out, I am an excellent candidate for LASIK surgery, and so I have opted to go for it.
My eyeballs will be sliced open and partially vaporized around 3 pm today… Depending upon how long it takes the Valium to kick in.
I am both excited and nervous.
The doctor I have chosen is quite highly sought after, and I have selected to have the latest “custom wavefront” LASIK procedure.
It’ll cost a pretty penny, but I ain’t a scrimpin’ on ma eyes!
And God/Allah/Buddha/Krishna willing, I will have 20/20 vision afterward. Or better.
Naturally I’m concerned about possible complications and such, but the risk of severe, irreversible trauma is quite low.
And the reward is quite high.
No more glasses shopping/expense. No more blindness at night and fumbling for glasses. No more shitty periferral vision. No more struggling to see music.
And best of all, for the first time in my life I’ll finallyget to wear douchey sunglasses!
Wish me luck (the good kind)!
