I have been thinking lately…this might be the last time I go here, do this, see this person. Is the only way I will miss Adelaide is by leaving?
I took a good long look at my backyard and I remembered all the memories that I have had in my childhood…it feels really surreal that I am leaving soon.
I will miss playing badminton with my friends for sure. I am scared and afraid of trying to make new friends in a new city :(.
I am going to have to learn how to cook for myself. Eek…I hope that I won’t starve…
I am going to miss eating out in Adelaide, especially eating out..gymming…since Melbourne is locked down at the moment due to Covid.
Exercising with glasses is a shit house. Glasses falls off, fogs up, and vision is blurry.
That’s what I told myself anyways…That’s why I wore contacts everyday,no matter where or what I was doing. I just feel self conscious, ugly, and not myself. When I feel contacts, I just feel so much more confident in myself that I don’t need to keep pushing up those stupid glasses that don’t ever seem to fit on my face. I just hate all the photos with me on glasses.. you can’t even see my eyes!!
That’s until I went for an appointment to see if I was eligible for Lasik surgery last week. He told me that my cornea was quite thin! The layer on top of the eye…I wonder if this is from my overuse of contact lenses 😦 Apparently you should only use it for 8 hours maximum a day, but I know for sure I wear them for 12-14 hours a day… eek..
Just had an appointment to check my suitability for lasik eye surgery last week…It feels surreal and almost like a pyramid scheme…No glasses or contacts for the rest of my life? Too good to be true surely.
The whole appointment from start to finish took about 2 hours and I had to see three different health professionals.
The first was technician who did all the initial tests and photographs that I thought normally the optometrist would do.. Then I went to see the optometrist to review those results. Then lastly, the final boss…Saw the eye surgeon who went through what were my options and how much it would cost.
It iS expensive..$3000 to do each eye and to utterly honest I am scared shitless of them cutting into my eye and then use laser to burn off stuff in my eye. The eye surgeon booked me in a for an appointment, because he knew I would be too chicken to…and said I could confirm or cancel it the following week. He gave me some eyedrops, the brand name being FML (lol name) and I was instructed to use that 4 times a day until the scheduled surgery. I was to not wear contacts for 2 days prior to the surgery and no make up etc on the day of surgery. He also gave me some Pregabalin capsules that I was instructed to take 1 hour before the appointment, which apparently is supposed to calm the nerves.
I feel like if I don’t do it now, I might never do it ever. Then I will be chained to glasses and contacts for the rest of my life…And worried about infections..losing a contact…or breaking them and having to pay so much to replace it.
Have any of you guys had lasik done?
