My internet is really slow these days and I hate it. I’ve been surfing around and leaving comments, but some how they don’t appear on the site. I’m sure it’s me, but I can’t do anything about it. But at least it’s Friday! Time to sit back and relax.
Let me tell you what I did this week. Of course I worked and cooked, but I also went for a so called quick scan to see if my eyes are suitable for lasik. Without my contacts I’m pretty much blind and I’ve always been a bit afraid of having it fixed. Although I’m still scared I thought I’d have a quick check up to see what the possibilities are. Of course the cheapest (still 3,500 euro) option wasn’t suitable, but apparently I’m a great candidate for lens implants (5,000 euro). Not to go into details, but they will make a tiny cut in the cornea and slip a flexible lens just in front of the iris. This procedure would only take a couple of minutes. About one or 2 weeks later they will do the other eye. This procedure is reversible so if it doesn’t work out they can take the lens out and I’ll be back on square 1.
I will have to wear my classes for 4 weeks so my eyes can get back to normal shape, but if I decided to go through with it, I could be contact lens free before the end of the year. Four weeks doesn’t seem like long, but for me it is pure hell. My glasses are -10! and give me headache when I wear them. On top of that I have a Vietnamese nose (very flat) so you get where I’m going to right?
If I decided to go with through this, there won’t be much cooking and blogging. It sounds weird but wearing glasses totally kills my mood for anything. That’s one of the reasons why I didn’t want to have it done in the first place. But to have a correct reading of my eyes I just have to suck it up.
To see or not to see that’s the question now. Yes I can see fine with my contacts and yes sometimes they are really a pain in the ass. Is it worth to wake up every day and see things clearly? I guess I can only answer this when I actually can see clearly. As long as I remember everything is blurry. I’ve been wearing glasses/contacts longer then I could actually see without them. People are right…you only miss things once it’s gone. Mine were gone so long that by now I don’t know better.
I still doubt about this so any comments or ideas are welcome.
So what do you all think?
