Go ahead...you know you want to sing the song now! Robin Thicke is amazing!!!
Speaking of blurred lines though...I would like to happily announce that I had LASIK eye surgery about 10 days ago! Which is also why I have not been blogging. Sorry July Photo A Day Challenge:(
I was strictly informed by my doctor to avoid computers, smart phones, reading and TVs as much as possible for at least a week. So I pretty much went to bed when the kids did b/c there wasn't anything else to do lol!
Honestly though I am SO happy with my LASIK results. People who have never had vision problems will never understand this. I was TWO years old when I got glasses. My vision just got worse and worse over the years. I finally got contacts when I was 13.
I went about my business happily until this past year when I experienced the absolute worst case of dry eye syndrome. I spent the last 8 months wearing my glasses full time. That really stinks when you are as near sighted as I am. For those who will understand this...my correction was -9.21 in my left eye and -9.67 in my right eye.
I'm pretty much blind.
But no longer!!! The procedure seriously took about 10 minutes tops. They sent me home wearing a pair of dark goggles. My eyes were very sensitive so I really just kept my eyes closed the whole way home. By the time we got to the house my eyes were starting to burn. I won't lie that part didn't feel great. But I took my little prescribed Lunesta and went straight to sleep. I slept from 6 PM to 6 AM the next day.
When I got up the pain was gone. My eye were blurry and hazy which was to be expected.
The first week my eyes were SO, SO, SO, SO dry from the surgery. It wasn't painful but it kind of drove me nuts. I was constantly using artificial tears. I had to sleep in goggles to keep from rubbing my eyes in my sleep. I could not wear eye make up for TWO WEEKS. Agh!!!
Somewhere around the Day 8 mark though things started looking a lot better. My vision has gradually become clearer and the dryness is subsiding. I still use tears but not as frequently. I can read and watch tv again and working on the computer isn't a problem.
Basically, I've decided it was the greatest thing I have ever done in my life. Being able to see is one of those things people tend to take for granted. I have enjoyed so many little things I could not enjoy before. Just getting up in the night to go the bathroom is no longer a perilous journey lol;)
And as cute as my leopard glasses were...I think I'm going to pop out the lenses and give them to the Little Missy to play dress up in. I don't need them anymore!
