|one year post surgery|
Not one to leave well enough alone, I'm having surgery again today. This time it's completely by choice. My husband arranged for me to have LASIK surgery as a birthday present this year. Apparently thick corneas are all the rage with LASIK, even my very thinnest friend has them. Me, not so much! Mine are too thin. Not that I mind saying that some part of me is too thin, but it does makes LASIK impossible, so it's PRK for the girl with thin corneas. Pretty much the same procedure to correct the vision, but instead of cutting a flap out of the cornea and doing the surgery on the inner layer of the cornea I have to get mine done on the outer layer. Of course, this takes longer to heal...stinking corneas!
The good news is that this surgery takes four days to heal from and not four months and then this girl will be contacts and glasses free!! Bring it on!
