The Results of the LASIK Surgery
I went in at 12:15 on Friday to have my vision corrected. I'm very happy with the results. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, though. I had more pain when they put that device on my eye to make the flap on my cornea. That was a fair amount of "pressure" (as the doctors would say). I also went blind for a couple of seconds in my left eye when they were cutting it (although they said that's normal so I didn't panic - it came back once they were done with the cut). Also, after the surgery was done and I got home, it felt like my eyes were on fire. Some people experience no discomfort; I was moaning on the bed for an hour. But I kept telling myself, this is worth it, this is worth it. Finally, the pain subsided, and I fell asleep for about an hour (valium will do that). When I got up around 4:15, I finally opened my eyes, and I was amazed. It wasn't crystal clear, but it was very good. When I went in to get my eyes checked, my vision was 20/25 in the right and 20/30 in the left (my left was weaker to start out with anyway). So, was it worth it? So far, the answer is yes.
I ended up spending my weekend playing "MechAssault" on my new 36" HDTV. The TV is a freakin' monster (well over 250 pounds). I needed two neighbors to help me get it in the house. It's not receiving a HD signal yet so the picture isn't that good, but I'll fix that relatively soon. "MechAssault" was OK. I played it at level 2 and it took about 10-15 hours to finish. It was fun, but definitely not up to Halo's standard.
