Loving Lasik...

Well, I finally did it. I have wanted it for years and on Monday I went through with it. I had Lasik. I now have perfect vision, almost. I still have a hard time seeing up close and bright lights at night have a bit of an aura around them, but all of that is normal and will be gone soon. I have been enjoying the beauty of the mountains, sunsets, and the view of the lake from our house. It's nice not to have to switch back and forth between glasses and sunglasses. My friends won't even be able to make fun of me anymore for wearing sunglasses to the movies!

I went through Hoopes in Sandy, Utah. They were great... expensive, but great. They even recorded the procedure for me and we watched it last night. I was considering putting it on the blog, but it isn't for the faint at heart (or those considering Lasik in the future). It really only takes seconds and the Valium they give you helps to calm your nerves, for the most part (I kept asking Rick to go and get another one for me, but he wouldn't!).

I am very happy with the results and I love seeing everything so crystal clear!

PS I'm one of those faint of heart people but would've been tempted to watch it, so thanks for not posting it!

Wow, congratulations! You are so spoiled! MAybe by the time I'm 75 I will be able to afford Lasik, but until then I just wear my contacts and pretend I have naturally perfect vision.

Someone should put that photo of your eyes up on a billboard on I-15--gorgeous!

Pretty pic of your beautiful blues! Steve went to Hoopes too and they gave him his DVD and it was blank. Apparently the tech forgot to push record so they said "We can give you a copy of someone else's surgery!" Ha...who wants a copy of someone else's eyes getting burnt off!

Yea!! I hope you love yours as much as I love mine. Of course I don't have as beautiful of eyes as you. They are stunning!
