What do you see?

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!

New Scion xB Ordered!

I didn’t get a chance to post about it till now but last weekend I ordered my new 2010 Scion xB! I can’t wait, I am so excited to have a new car!! It should be here in about 4-6 weeks from now. I’ve been wanting one for some time and was about to pull the trigger when I found out about the 2010 model which for the same price as the 2009 had a better stereo and some new features. So I went with that one and picked it in Sting-ray Metallic, a kind of blue with silver, which looks different depending on the lighting. I also added in the Bluetooth car kit and the 16″ Alloy wheels. It’ll have window tinting and a few other things added on as well.
