So its almost been a year since I had my Lasik eye surgery! That has, by far been the best money I have ever spent (on material things). I remember when I went for my consult, the nurse said to me "when you realize you haven't thought about your vision or your eyes or contacts or anything for a few months, that's when you know that it was a great decision! Well, my eyes and vision haven't even crossed my mind in quite a while! The only reason I even thought about this now, is b/c I have it written on my calendar that its been a year! After the surgery I questioned if I did the right thing. My right eye lagged behind my left eye and never saw as well. It went on like this for soem time. Everytime I would go to the dr. for a check up he said my right eye was seeing 20/20 and my left was seeing 20/15 -- no way! Its so funny, even at 20/20 which they consider to be perfect vision, I wasn't satisfied b/c I was seeing 20/15 (Above average) in the other eye. How spoiled can I be!! Well I am happy to inform you that both of my eyes see the same and wonderfully at that! I didn't think it was possible to see like this! I love it - It still amazes me to wake up in the night and see the clock! I think the reason I love this so much is b/c when I wore contacts, I would never take them out! Ever. I would wear the same pair that were meant to be 2 weeks, for about 4-5 months, straight - 24/7 - I was ruining my eyes, but couldn't take them out for the fear of waking up and not being able to see. This was really scary to me. I'm not sure why, but I was terrified. I think b/c my vision was SOOO bad that I couldn't even see my hand clearly extended in front of my face much less a stranger in my house at night....weird, I know. Thanks to Dr. Watson - I'm clear and so happy! This may sound stupid too - but when I can see clear, I feel prettier. When I used to take my contacts out, I would feel so strange like everyone was looking at me. It didn't have anything to do with wearing glasses either...I liked my glasses and thought I looked cute in them...but as soon as I took them off and looked out with my horrible vision, I felt so insecure and strange....not to mention scared....Anwyay.....just some thoughts from my head!
