Lasik Tomorrow

Monday, July 19, 2004
Tomorrow I'm going in for a touch up to my original Lasik Procedure. Thus far my vision has been pretty much the same for the last 6 months. In both eyes I have a diopter of -0.75. Not horrible but bad enough to be really annoying when I'm driving at night and when I go into a store.

I'm hopeful that Dr. Assil, the doctor performing my Lasik Procedure, will be able to get me close to 20/20. Dr. Assil is supposed to be one of the more respected Lasik surgeons in the L.A. area so I'm fairly confident it will work out. I know two other people who have gotten their Lasik done by him. One was very happy and one not so much so. But the latter was supposed to go in for her touch up recently so maybe it ended up working out for her. It is a little strange because I think I'm more nervous this time around than last. I think its because it didn't work out the way I wanted last time and I don't think I could go 6 more months with my current vision .

Thus far having slightly bad vision has caused me to have a headache on and off for the last few months. There are some people who go their whole lives with my current vision and don't ever get any glasses or contacts. How they manage is beyond me.

So everybody cross their fingers and wish me luck. I'll let everyone know on Wednesday or Thursday how everything went.

T,
The funny thing to me is that your current vision is the same as mine. Apparently getting my eyesight all of a sudden is annoying, but having it happen over the course of several years is just mildly annoying.

And relax, it will go fine.

Funny. I was just thinking about your surgery the other day and I was wondering how your eyesight was shaping up. I'm sure the tune up will go well.

Your eyesight is the same as mine, too. It's no big thing, but I guess you had been expecting 20/20 so it was something of a let down. The fact is, except for reading street signs while driving at night, I rarely bump the limits of my mediocre vision. So, no big deal. That said, I wish you all the best: 20/20 and night vision too! Good luck.
