One thing I have always wanted in my life was laser eye surgery. All my life i have worn glasses and just had a dream that one day I’d be able to see without them. Well, it isn’t always that simple. Some years ago and most recently a couple of months ago I was evaluated for laser eye surgery and found to be ineligible for it. Mainly due to being too farsighted the procedure can only correct so much before causing other issues.
Anyway, as luck would have it there was an alternative. Not exactly a routine thing but I was referred to a great opthalmaologist about what’s called Clear Lens Extraction. Basically it’s contacts that are inside your eye. The natural lens that sits behind the cornea is removed and replaced with a augmented artificial lens. At first, I was hesitant about it. But in the end decided to go ahead and do it! Kind of funny being a technical guy its just funny to think that I have new lenses in my eyes…like an upgrade! sweet! 🙂
So, I am happy to say I am half way there! I had one eye operated on (they do one at a time) and by in large parts a success! I’ll have to wait some time for this one to heal and probably wear a contact in the other eye till it’s time. So far I am excited no more glasses!!
So many possibilities and little benefits I can now enjoy…sun glasses anyone? Can’t wait for the next one to be done!
