So, tomorrow I go under the blade to get the old eyes sorted out. After too many years of wearing glasses I’ve had enough of them, and I suppose I might as well do it while I’m in a place with some scenery to appreciate, and to give me a few years before the reading glasses make their inevitable appearance.
My wife had PRK at the Air Force Academy a couple of months ago, and ended up being off work for nearly two weeks so I’m not going down that route — it’s bladeless “wavefront” Lasik for me. I had a pre-op exam today, immediately followed by a drive across town to take Number Two son for his first swimming lesson. I was feeling felt bad about my searing eyeball pain and nauseous disorientation until I saw what the swimming instructor of seven three-to-four year olds has to go through.
