So laser eye surgery is nothing new. With diabetes though it poses more risks. Obviously when it first came out I wanted it but my vision was continuing to degrade and the procedure was super expensive.
-When I get out of my car there are no clip-on granny glasses to take off (yet I still try)
-one word..... SUNGLASSES!
-after washing my face I don't have to get an inch from the mirror to see myself
-When I snuggle Ryan I don't get greasy nose prints
-plucking my eyebrows just became so much easier
-I can read street signs! Wait, did I already say that one?
-Throwing out all contact lenses, solution, cases and cleaners. Minimalism.
-Falling asleep in front of the TV
-I am still pushing my imaginary glasses up my nose
-I can see what time it is on my phone when I wake up in the middle of the night
-Subsequently, I can see what my BG is when I wake up in the middle of the night to test
-I cut up an onion the other day and it didn't burn my eyeballs
-I just can't stop staring out the window
-I keep feeling "exposed"
-I will miss how glasses helped to hide my tired baggy eyes in the morning
-I'm looking forward to yoga and not having my glasses on my forehead during inverted poses
-Waking up next to Ryan and other things I can't write about
So best shit ever. I can NOT wait to ride my bike! It will be a whole new world of seeing.
The only downside right now is the incessant migraines. It's been a constant reminder of just how much I didn't see before because it's overwhelming me right now.
