Chronicles of LASIK: Day 86

by / on February 4, 2014, 16:35 / in The Chronicles of LASIK

I’ve been pretty quiet about my eyes lately. Part of that is because I’ve been collecting my thoughts. But part of that is also that the changes are gradual, and I wanted a bit of time to feel things out before I wrote again. But were coming up soon on my final appointment at the Shinagawa LASIK clinic, and before […]

The Chronicles of LASIK: Day 30

Showers are important. I mean, proper hygiene is important, but showing is really important post-LASIK. I’ve got fake tear eyedrops to moisten my eyes, but in the morning, they don’t cut it. Or they didn’t until recently. The last few days have been better than ever, and every day I’m getting that much closer to being healed. But certainly for […]

Chronicles of LASIK: Day 12

I held this post off a few days so that I could have a bit of a proper perspective on it. Now, of course, I’m still way too close to the event to have a proper perspective, but that’s sort of the point of these posts. Writing things down while they’re fresh in your mind is important. Memory changes over […]

Chronicles of LASIK: Day 7

Well… exactly 7 days ago at this time, I was done with the surgical pre-screen, and sitting in a waiting room, waiting to pay my monies and get my eyeballs lasered. Theoretically, this means a whole bunch of things. It means I can stop wearing those stupid things to bed. It means I can stop wearing the plastic safety glasses […]

The Chronicles of LASIK: Day 4

I’ve definitely noticed that I can see better when my eyes are properly hydrated. This seems a bit weird, but it’s taken some getting used to to know when I have dry eyes. I’ve always slept with my eyes open. Don’t really know why I do it, but ever since I scared the crap out of my first college roommate, […]

The Chronicles of LASIK: Day 1

by / on November 9, 2013, 20:51 / in The Chronicles of LASIK

When I woke up this morning, I could see! Kinda. I could see perfectly through the holes in the plastic eye shields that I had taped over my eyes. Once I got off the eye shields, I was ready to celebrate. But first I had to put medicine in my eyes. And then shower. But I couldn’t wash my face. […]

The Chronicles of LASIK: Day 0

I wasn’t expecting burning eyeball to smell like that – it smelled like burning plastic. I wasn’t prepared for the taste, either. That took my by surprise as I walked to the recovery room – I suspect the chemicals used to anesthetize and rinse my eyes mixed with vaporized eyeball and drained through my nose into my mouth as I […]
