Can you see this???
Well...this post is a little overdue.
Last Friday, Damon had Lasik surgery on his eyes.
Um.....Saturday he had a f/u appt. 20/20 vision.
Today he had a f/u appt. 20/15 vision.
There are a lot of things they don't tell you upfront...like, you're going to have to actually go to the office 4+ times in a short time frame for f/u appointments.
You can't sleep under a ceiling fan, or really--you aren't supposed to BE around ceiling fans for 3 months. No contact sports for 3 months. Oh, and my personal favorite on the discharge instructions: you can bathe, but do not shower. Do not stand with a steady stream of water going into your eyes.
Cuz you know---we do that a lot. We stand there with the freaking SHOWER STREAM BLASTING OUR EYEBALLS.
Oh...and the drops. There are 3 different drops, plus the wetting liquid, plus the night-time ointment. The bottles of drops: very expensive. Our insurance covers them, but the copays themselves are up there, and seriously---the amount of liquid in each bottle---I can spit more fluid ounces than they've put in those bottles.
But---in the end, it's what he wanted. I personally find glasses on a man VERY attractive...but he was tired of the hassle.
My friend, Susan, once brought up an excellent point about Lasik: they don't yet know the long term effects....
He was made aware of this prior to the procedure....and he had it done.
So far he's very pleased.
Me----I'd choose a boob-job over Lasik any day of the week!
(after I've had all my babies of course...)
