And by that, I mean better vision. I’ve been a contact wearer for some 30 years (yeah, longer than many of you have been around, I know!). I have been faithful to those little discs, eschewing glasses, avoiding lasik for years
out of fear. I pretty much thought I ‘d wear them forever.
But of late, I’ve kind of started getting annoyed with my contacts. I guess it’s an age thing. Any more, if I wear my contacts for a long, early morning run, by mid-day they are so dried out and uncomfortable, all I can think about is taking them out. Then there’s the fact that I have to put on cheaters now and then to read small type. Two types of vision issues? Ugh.
So, I am going for a consult today about lasik. I’m pretty excited to ditch my contacts, I must say. But I hear from others that you have to go without contacts for a week or two leading up to the procedure? And that I won’t be able to run for seven days post-procedure. Small potatoes in the grand scheme of things, but it will be a long week, no doubt. And when I go for my consult today, if all is a go, I just might be scheduling that procedure for the after I return from Boston. Pretty good planning, don’t you think?
Perhaps the best thing of all, I hear you get to wear sunglasses like these post-procedure. Don’t hate.
Who else has had lasik? Tell me you love it and it is all worth it.
