4 years ago today . . .
. . . my eyes changed forever.
I had LASIK surgery. I've heard it called a modern miracle and for me it was a good thing.
I did need an enchancement within the first few months after my original surgery. My eyes were so terribly bad in the beginning, an enchancement is not unusual. I found it was better to be under corrected, rather than over corrected. Over correction would have resulted in needing readers immediately. Even though I'm nearing that age, I'm not quite there yet. :)
After my enhancement, things have been great. I do have some glasses that I sometimes need when driving at night. It's not a bad trade off. I don't need other vision correction, not even readers just yet. It's nice to get out of bed in the mornings without reaching for glasses. It's nice to not worry about taking contacts out before bed. It's just a wonderful convenience.
LASIK is not for everyone and this post is not an endorsement of any procedure or any doctor. It is merely sharing of my personal experience.
