Soooo I just got back from my LASIK consultation…
…and I’m not eligible. My prescription is too high (-10) and my eyes are too big.
BUT! There’s this procedure called PRK that is an alternative to LASIK that yields the same results. The only thing is the recovery time is much longer (about two weeks as opposed to immediately) and they scratch your cornea instead of cutting a flap. So basically, I’m going to feel like I have eyelashes in my eyes for two weeks. But hey—if I end up being able to see at the end of this, it’s all worth it.
What’s awesome is, I bought the LASIK procedure on Groupon in September for $2400 and I don’t have to pay any upcharges for PRK! WOOT.
Oh yeah, and I’m wearing my glasses currently and can’t wear contacts anymore and my surgery on February 9th. I just said “and” a lot. Making videos will be interesting. I don’t know if I’m just going to be staring into the camera blindly or if I’ll be wearing my glasses. I suppose we will see. (no pun intended)
But yeah. Guess I just wanted to fill you guys in. Kbye.
