Okay, making this brief . . .
Yesterday, buoyed by stories of people having the operation and leaving with perfect vision, I had Lasik to correct my vision problems.
Let’s just say it didn’t go as well as I could have hoped.
I have become so sensitive to light that, pretty much, I can’t see. Sunlight blinds me. I can’t wath television or look at a video monitor because they’re too bright. I can’t read because I can’t focus well enough.
Basically what I can do is sit in a darkened room and hope this goes away. Which it probably will.
But in the meantime, please know that if you’ve sent me any email, I haven’t been able to read it. If you’ve made any announcementx on your home page or on places like Facebook, I haven’t seen them. if you need me to know something please telephone, bcause my ears and vocal cords still work perfectly well.
So anyway . . . here’s hoping for better days.
UPDAte, 18 hours later: Things have improved somewhat. I drove a car around the neighborhood this morning, and though it wasn’t comfortable, it was do-able. I can wath TV, though it’s blurry. And I can read a video monitor sprovided that it’s about five inches from my left eye, and I turn down the intensity.
So the trend is positive, though frustration remains the order of the day.
