Clear Sight

I open my eyes when I wake up and see the world clearly for the first time since I was 12 years old.

I had laser eye surgery last Wednesday. Within a few days of the procedure I had better than 20/20 vision. It may fluctuate a bit as my eyes heal over the next couple months, but everything looks like I should have 20/20 or better when it’s all said and done. Needless to say, I’m quite ecstatic.

Free from glasses. It’s the kind of confidence booster that I need as of late. I look in the mirror and I get a big smile because my sight is so crisp and real.

I wanted to make sure my parents knew before I posted this. I decided not to tell them beforehand because I’m pretty sure they would’ve gotten way too nervous about it. The kind of nervous that would’ve made me worry too. I had my doubts before the surgery, but in the end there was nothing to fear. The whole procedure was totally painless and quick. The doctors at Lasik have been fantastic and I can whole-heartedly recommend this for anyone who can afford it. I know that sounds like a cheesy commercial, but it’s all quite true. I’m actually a bit in awe of it all.

It’s something I’ve been planning for quite some time and even though we were just moved into the new apartment, Reading Week looked to be the best time for me to rest and recover from the surgery without lectures to worry about.

I have to take precautions for the next couple months, but before the summer it’ll all be finished. No more eye drops or wearing dark glasses in bright light. Perfect timing for summer weather, experiencing new things and enjoying the convention season.

Even now, it’s like a little bit of magic. I want to soak up the sights around me fully and completely.
