I was blind….

… Now I can see!

Ok- not BLIND blind, but living with very blurry vision (sans glasses). And in the span of about 8 minutes, my vision was correct to 20/20. Better than, actually.

The whole LASIK experience is quite surreal.

It’s like… A factory. But a factory that specializes in puppies and rocket launching.

They make you comfy, give you valium, talk you through everything in a soothing voice, give you a fluffy squeeze toy, etc… And then it’s all Mission Control.

“We are go for the right eye. We are go for laser. 6 at 32 seconds…*zaaaaaap* 5 at 26 seconds…*zaaaaaap*”

And in a total of 8 minutes you are done and walking out of the room.

I mean, there’s a bit more to it than that, but not much. And no pain at all. There is some pressure on the eye, vibration, the noise of the laser, and I did catch one whiff of… Well.. You know.

But seriously- it all goes so smoothly and with practiced precision that they should pipe in that “Factory” music used in Bugs Bunny cartoons.

It almost makes me sick to break down the overall cost into dollars per minute!

Except for the fact that the surgery went brilliantly and the next day I was seeing slightly better than 20/20.

Completely worth every penny.

And the best part? Wearing SUNGLASSES!!

This is me the day after surgery:

Yup- I’m wearing Vuarnets. My dad brought them back as a gift when he visited France like in 1989 or so. I’ve managed to keep them all these years, and this is the first time I’ve been able to wear them.

And now they’re RETRO!

Also, I bought cheap, d-bag sunglasses today. Although I’m now coining the term “Shore Bag” to describe them:

They’re gonna be perfect Horn Sargent shades!

  1. Congratulations! And, I must say, you are WORKING those Shore Bag glasses!

  2. Congratulations! I know how relieved you feel! (I had to have surgeries for cataracts last year, & even the logistics of getting to & from the hospital sort of wracked my nerves!)

    So, I take it you were not wearing bifocals ?? I think Lasik works best if you are just near-sighted or far-sighted…..

    I always liked dating guys with glasses – it was like the spit guard at salad bars…it protected them from….well….never mind.

    But I always did like dating guys with glasses.

    Congratulations. Lasik is so freeing. No more frosty glasses come winter; all the funky sunglasses you can get. However, it take quite a while before I stopped pushing the imaginary glasses back up to my eyes. Enjoy and have fun.

    I’m so envious. So glad it worked out. Though you made me laugh at Vaurnets. Forgot those existed…..and for good reason.

  11. I wish my dang vision would stabilize enough I could go through a similar procedure.

    And I could get passed that whole “looking into the sun” thing.

    One of these centuries.

    Congrats on the successful surgery. Now, what kind of Rock’em Sock’em Robots tee are you sportin’ in that last pic? Nerdy gay minds need to know…

  13. Rich says:

    Congrats, CB. You may have encouraged me to stop being so chicken s**t about getting that done, too. (You look equally good in and out of glasses, btw).
