I can see clearly now...

....the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way!

Ya, I can totally see! I'm loving this no contacts or glasses thing! The whole reason I got the lasik eye surgery is cuz I could no longer wear contacts. I'd try wearing them for a few hours here and there and then my eyes would be so sore that I'd have to wear glasses for the next 3 days. And oh how I hate wearing glasses. So annoying at the beach swimming or if you want to wear sunglasses or any sort of working out. Ugh! Anywho, I've been having problems for over a year now with my contacts and my optometrist suggested I look into the surgery. I was going to have the surgery back in February, but it was one of those weeks when everything went wrong and I had to cancel it. So it was a spur of the moment thing this time. Tim came home from work and I told him I booked the surgery and I was getting it done next week. :) I'm so glad I did it!

I saw 20/20
the first two days after the surgery then things started to go kinda blurry. I was worried. But I had another appointment up in Calgary for a follow-up as my one eye was a bit inflamed, and they told me the blurriness was swelling that was causing halos around lights, computers, tv, etc. and it'll all go away! (The inflammation that I didn't even notice was cleared up too.) So tomorrow it'll be 2 weeks and I can sooooooo see! I have been able to see with no halos the last few days. It's amazing to wake up at night to check on Kinsey and be able to see the clock and where I'm going. Love it! And thank goodness I'm not an eye drop junky anymore and I can wear eye makeup again. My eyes feel great.

So if you've been thinking about it.... GO GET IT DONE! I should've done this years ago!! And that's my only complaint. :)
