If you’ve been following my story, I’ve been sharing my personal experience and my vision story with all of you. You can find my blog about getting ready for LASIK, the truth and details about the procedure in my second installment here, and now I’m sharing how life is after LASIK! No holds barred!!
I’ll be honest in that at times I can be forgetful when I’m tired and had contact lenses and glasses for ages and ages, so for me taking off my contacts before bed was part of my routine. It went right along with cleansing my face, moisturizing and brushing my teeth. So these days I have been skipping the contact lens step, getting into bed and then realizing I “forgot” to take out my contacts. This has happened to me at least a dozen times in the past month. And that, my friends, has been the hardest part of life after LASIK. I kid you not, that is my biggest complaint.
Since having the procedure done at EyeCare 20/20 with the ever fabulous Dr. Silverman and going through the adjustment period of dry and “sandy” eyes, life has been good! I do not miss the hassle of putting in and taking out my contacts and definitely don’t miss waking up and not being able to see a thing. Now when I wake up, I can see what time it is on my phone, I can get ready without worrying if my glasses are on my nightstand so I can see. My mornings are a bit simpler, my evenings are a bit more relaxing. I can visit the park in the evenings with my kids and not worry about my contacts drying out. It’s fabulous!!!
With my daughter on the swim team, we at the pool a lot. It’s a big commitment time wise and in the past I often shied away from the pool because of worry about losing my contacts in the water. Last week I went to family swim with my son and we raced in the lap lanes and splashed in the pool. Not once did I worry about losing my contacts! I simply cannot wait to go to the beach this summer and jump in the waves with the same careless emotion. This has been one of my favorite things about LASIK.
I’ve been doing yoga for ages and it’s something I love for my body and soul. Even being able to go to that and close my eyes for the ending meditation without something “in my eye” feels so good. One less thing to worry about, one less layer between me and my zen.
If you are considering LASIK, I cannot say enough good things about my experience and the office of Dr. Silverman and his team. He is an expert in the field and I wouldn’t trust something as important as my vision to just anyone, and with him I felt at ease and cared for. He’s a brilliant doctor and did wonders for me and my life by performing LASIK surgery for me!
