Lasik - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
"I had an eye appointment last week, but I was out of town and had to cancel it," I told the woman who answered the phone. "So I'm hoping to reschedule it."

"Okay," she said, "do you wear glasses or contacts?"

The realization swept over me with delight. "Neither!"

I have been eyeglasses- and contacts-free for over half of a year. It's still hard to believe, but it is so wonderful! I love having good vision, even though I'm frequently still paranoid about it.

As I explained to the phone, "I had lasik, and am just scheduling my six-month followup."

I'm looking forward to how my tests come out. I think I can still see fine correction-free; hopefully my doc will think so too. The only bummer is that this one is supposed to involve dilating my pupils. Annoying, since it will render my eyes semi-useless for awhile. Much like the day of my exciting Christmas-tree-shopping adventure awhile back...

Fortunately I don't plan on buying any more trees, and I scheduled it for eveningish. Only now that I think about it, I might end up being in Cleveland again. I'm not sure, but I'm all confused about our travel schedule. And I need to find a way to go to New York in August, too -- and Chicago! And I'd like to go Up North sometime soon with my friends!

Good thing my cats are pretty self-sufficient, because at this rate I won't be seeing them a whole lot. (And when I do see them, my eyes will be dilated so I'll be half-blind -- ha! Poor kitties.)

Do you really have green eyes?

How did I miss that?

I have to pay more attention to the world around me.
