In graduate school, when discussing lab safety (like I didn’t know it at this point), one of the professors said “these are the two most important balls in my body!”
He then pointed to his eyeballs. Whew.
So very, very true. I think we sometimes take our eyes for granted.
At the same time, at the ripe age of 30, after wearing glasses since 2nd grade, Mr. Serious got his most important “balls” worked on.
After looking at a green light for a while, and the doctor moving stuff on his eyes, he was done.
Seriously, like maybe 10 minutes total he was out of my site (I was only bummed that the Valium didn’t result in some fun conversations).
And, then, no more glasses!
He gets to wake up every morning and he can see. Without glasses. At night, he can look at his alarm clock. He can go help the girls if they call for us.
Did I mention I’m jealous? Jealous of perfect 20/20 vision without glasses or contacts. A girl can dream!
The whole experience (minus about 48 hours of sleeping and pain because his surgery was a little different than a traditional LASIK surgery), was amazing. Every single appointment, we saw the doctor who performed the surgery. He took the time to get to know us (both of us) and was there every step of the way (even calling to check on Mr. Serious on the weekend and giving us his email address…and answering emails at night and on the weekends. It was with Stephen Hamilton, MD who gives being a doctor and surgeon a good name. He’s understanding and realistic.
I’m not getting anything for telling you this (and we paid for his surgery, too), but if you have to do LASIK in the Atlanta area, you should really check out Piedmont Better Vision! The office staff and doctors are nothing short of amazing!
