Yesterday at noon I walked into the Laser Eye Center and less than 24 hours later, I’m playing the “read that street sign” game with myself in my car. It’s absolutely amazing. Went in for my follow-up this morning where it was confirmed that, indeed, I’m seeing 20/20, if not better.
There really isn’t that much to the story actually. I went in around noon and signed off on all their “permission” slips. Less than thirty minutes later I’m in the pre-op room *again* with a Zantac running through my blood to calm my nerves. I meet Dr. Garabet, the head surgeon at the Laser Eye Center. He tells me that he’s performed over 60,000 of these procedures and, as my head spins with what kind of cash that equates to, he leads me into the surgery room. A confidence exudes from him that immediately puts me at ease. I won’t go into the exact details of the procedure, but I will tell you this; it was easy, totally painless and lasted a grand total of about four minutes. As soon as I sat up in the surgery chair, I could see the details in the wall across the room.
And that’s it! Now I’m restricted from hot tubs, oceans, make-up and contact sports for anywhere between four weeks and four months and the surgery did put a small dent in my savings account *I signed a waiver saying I wouldn’t disclose the price I was quoted at*…but I woke up this morning and looked across my bedroom and read the time off the clock on the far wall…and THAT…is priceless.
