Wow. Hope all goes well with your surgery.  Be sure not to stress your eyes too much afterward, so all will heal and do well!

Aah, no time off of work? :o Have you let your boss know what you're having done so they can know what's going on in case of any (hopefully non-occurring) atypical behavior?

Regardless, good luck! Will be sending all of the beneficial vibes your way; I hope that everything goes swimmingly for you and your ojos.
Why did it all go wrong?
I wanna know what's going on.
And what's this holding me?
I'm not where I'm supposed to be.
I gotta fight another fight,
I gotta fight with all my might.
I'm getting out, so check it out -
You're in my way,
Yeah, you better watch out...

Yeah, I told my corporate head I was having the surgery, and the lawyer in charge of employees/vacations is also aware. But according to the surgeons, recovery is very fast save for dryness and sensitivity, for which you get special eyedrops to relieve the pain.

My corporate head asked for a selfie, lmao. I told him at our Christmas party Friday that he wouldn't be around to see me with my new robotic eyes (since he's leaving for Florida the week of the 22). So he told me to take a selfie, lmao.

He clearly didn't know who he was talking to, because I have no shame doing it. xD

But if all goes well, yeah, no need to take time off work. I told the surgeon I work a desk job and everything, and he said that was fine. To just use the eyedrops more often, probably, but otherwise I should be fine.

Good luck with your eyeballs, Shrewdie~ Sounds like it's a great investment if your glasses cost that much. Like, wow. I'm sure everything with be perfectly fine, though. :3

Hope it goes well for you, Shrewd! My grandparents had LASIK surgery and they LOOOOOVED it. Said it was so liberating and such. So here's to a problem-free surgery and an awesome life with great vision ahead!

These lofty thoughts are killing me
Preoccupied by what I could be
I get so high on my ideas
Don't call me down
But you can meet me where I land.

I
Left the bay
In pursuit
Of lucid dreams
Now I
Drive for days
To make my way back to those old familiar places

Oh gosh, good luck Shrewd! I really hope that everything goes well for you. I don't know much about LASIK surgery (or vision-related surgeries in general) but I'm hoping that you get the results you're looking for without any complications!

I wish you luck Shrewd. My nanny went through the same thing and she was fine afterwards. The older you are the longer it takes to recover so it should take you less time than her being as that your in your early 20s. My nanny just turned 87... last week. xD;; gives you an idea how old she is. Only thing she needs now is reading glasses.

That all aside, good luck to you. I hope everything goes well and nothing is too painful.

Good luck, Shrewd! Here's to better sight and no more glasses! *raises a glass to toast*

My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god
You can have my isolation, you can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith, you can have my everything
Help me tear down my reason, help me it's your sex I can smell
Help me you make me perfect, help me become somebody else

Through every forest, above the trees
Within my stomach, scraped off my knees
I drink the honey inside your hive
You are the reason I stay alive

Good luck Shrewd! I hope everything goes smoothly for you. uwu < 33
I look out the window somedays, I see a million ways, and that's fine.
I didn't dance how I wanted to dance, I did a bit of prance, and that's fine.

Take your guess, spurious at best.
Can't you see its all just chaos?

I breathe in and then I breathe out, I've got a trillion doubts, and that's fine.
I took a road that wasn't a road but it was something I chose, and that's fine.

Thank you thank you for all the well wishes~ Surgery is in two days, and I'm here with an update: they called today to confirm the surgery and the time!

I was antsy and nervous all day waiting for them to call. xD; They finally called me at around 4:15 to confirm the surgery, and to give me the time: 10:45AM!

Aaaaahah it's getting really real now guys.

For the curious: eye surgery varies depending on what you're getting fixed (myopia, cataracts, etc), but in my case, it's a very fast surgery that should take roughly 2 minutes per eye. Within 10-20 minutes, the surgery will be over.

Your eye has a layer called the cornea: the surgeon numbs your eyes and keeps them open, and then he starts by creating a flap out of the cornea. He opens the flap to get inside the eye, and then with another laser, reshape the tissues in order to fix the vision problem. He then puts the flap back down, and the cornea will start healing on its own naturally, without stitches.

They do numb your eyes, so apparently all you might feel is a bit of pressure, and it smell a little burnt because of the laser.

For those curious to see it visually (diagram), here you go. It even explains each phase.

Anyway, tomorrow I'm going for the eyedrops, and then Saturday will be the day. I will try to update as soon as possible, even if only to say 'went well' if I can't stand screens and lights. xD

homg, Shrewdie~ :0 I never knew how they did the surgery, so that is some very interesting info. x3 And it's really nice that it'll go quickly!  That's always a plus.  Well, once again, good luck~ ;o; I hope you'll recover quickly so we can be graced with your presence on Evelon once again~ ;p <3


I think back to the time when my search first began,
I left behind those shores of sand
For the endless everlasting world out there.

I know that with this burning passion driving me
Someday, somewhere I'll finally see
The light I have searched for everywhere!
