I’ve also been trying to change my lifestyle. Lots of things have changed, I’ve changed. Hence, the break. I lacked the motivation to write again. I was getting comments from lots of disappointed people asking me why I don’t write anymore.
So, today I decided there is just no reason not to. I do enjoy blogging and there are so many things I want to share!
How the Lasik eye surgery works
I got Lasik eye surgery done in January. I absolutely hated wearing contacts/glasses. So, that has been one of the highlights of my year.
Lasik surgery is expensive. Many people ask how much does Lasik eye surgery cost. For those who don’t know Lasik surgery is a surgical procedure to correct near or farsightedness. My vision was pretty bad and it was getting worse! My left eye was -4.75 and right eye -5.00. I decided to get the surgery done.
Initially, I was a bit skeptical. But, once I visited my doctor in Laser Center all my fears were gone. The center was professional and my doctor was amazing! The doctor performed my surgery and guided me pre and post-recovery. Below is an overview of experience without any technical details. If you would like a detailed post, let me know.
Days before the surgery they performed all kinds of tests to make sure my eyes are suitable to undergo the procedure. I probably ate up all the information available online about Lasik surgeries. That freaked me out even more! How long does Lasik take? The surgery itself lasted 10 mins. They put anesthesia drops in my eyes and then used a tool that prevented me from blinking.
After that, I had to look at a light for a few mins and the laser did its thing. I walked out with swollen, watery eyes but my vision was instantly perfect!!! It was the best feeling in the world! I’ve been wearing glasses since I was in 5th grade so being able to see without glasses or contacts was nothing short of a miracle.
Period of Lasik recovery time
The recovery wasn’t easy. I had to take painkillers. It was intense. So, that was four months ago. My eyes are mostly recovered except the dry eyes side effect. I’m treating it naturally with castor oil. Castor oil has been a lifesaver!
