LASIK update

Things still fluctuate on occasion with the vision. I had my 10 day appointment and my eyes working together see 20/20. The left eye still has a teensy tiny bit of fuzz on things that are close to me, but since my right eye is dominant I don’t notice it. I know, I’m repeating myself. The starbursts and halos when driving at night are there, of course, as they will be for a while, but I’m actually getting used to ignoring them. Occasionally my eye will adjust and they go away for a second. I expect that will become more frequent as time goes on. I’m now addicted to staring off into the distance and marveling at everything that’s out there given that I don’t have a limit to my peripheral vision anymore. Waking up in the morning and seeing everything is the coolest thing. No more goggles, no more meds. I just irrigate my eyes 4 to 6 times a day as the doctor recommended. It definitely feels good to do that. I sometimes wonder if someone will catch me in the middle of my applying the drops and then eventually wiping away the excess with a tissue. ”Mark, why are you crying?” I’ve decided that I’d tell them I’m crying because I miss the XFL.
