Boo Eye Doctors! Yay Surgery?!

Friday, January 10, 2014

It's Friday! And that means I have an appointment with the eye doctor today. I wanted to go get my eyes checked out so I don't have to worry that they are slowly going bad! But I really don't like going to this doctor. Any other doctor I'm okay with.

I've only been to the optometrist once. Pardon my language, but I was a pure bitch when I went. I didn't go by choice, my parents made me when I graduated from high school. They said I needed to have my eyes checked to make sure I didn't have an eye disease. I think from the bad experience and the fear they are going to say I need glasses makes me very nervous about my appointment today. Hopefully everything comes back okay.

In other eye news, John has an upcoming eye surgery to correct his vision. I don't really know what the surgery is, nor do I really want to know. The thought of anything: a laser or scalpels or whatever, coming close to my eye, even that stupid little puff of air machine at the eye doctors, it all freaks me out.

I'm hoping I will be able to be there with him for the surgery. I'm excited that he will be getting better, but I'm not sure I want him to have it (though there's no going back now, paperwork and leave have already been signed and put through). I know that sounds mean but I worry... a lot. I'm worried that it will make his vision worse. The fact that he told me he would be coming out of the surgery blind didn't help. That made me freak out even more. I still have a little bit of time before his surgery to become okay with it. I just want everything to go okay.

Anyway, I hope everybody else is having a wonderful Friday.

  1. I had eye surgery 2 years ago and it was the best decision I ever made. The surgery was easy and I was driving the next day. Kyle had it through the army almost 6 years ago and has never had any issues. Good luck to John.

  2. Aw I'm sure everything will go smoothly but I'll be thinking about you and John. The doctor has probably done the procedure hundreds (if not thousands) of times before...although I know that may not help ease your worries still.

  3. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and informative for Eyes on the Big Acquisition in this headline, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Laser Eye Surgery News As laser eye surgery keeps on increasing in notoriety and laser eye surgery news is a hot topic for the victims, we take a gander at 12 myths that keep on encompassing the method so as to differentiate the fiction from the reality.

  4. Hi
    I let mine go too, but now im on medicare, I try to keep up. Last time I went, late, they were still the same,,lol. I think some of my meds are making me not see small print good, and even having to use a magnifying glass too much. (That's for phone book stull, tho) San Antonio Lasik Surgery

  6. I'm willing to bet John came out of the surgery with nothing but good results! Though I wouldn't be surprised if he joked around with you a little bit after the operation. To make it clear, the laser used for operations like these won't blind anyone. It's fine-tuned to apply the exact amount needed to fix the problem and nothing more. So how is John now?
