Yesterday I finally had my laser eye operation, called LASIK, which went really great. It lasted less than 10 minutes, really impressive. Right after the surgery I was feeling much annoyance in my eyes, like there was something inside them, plus I couldn’t stand the light. I was also a little dizzy, but nothing strong, and most importantly, I didn’t feel much (any?) pain. After two hours I was back to normal, no problem in standing in light places and no pain at all. Of course I have to be very carefull for the next two weeks (at least), and continue the eye drops for about 2 months. I’m not allowed to touch my eyes, thus I’m wearing eye patches at night, and I can’t wash them yet, which is the most annoying thing, as they are itchy almost always since yesterday. On the bright side, I have no myopia at all any more (opposed to my previous -6.50 degrees, to get the picture, everything further than ~20cm was blur). My original plan to stay offline for a number of days is not needed according to my doctor, as long as it doesn’t bug me. Actually, I take regular long pauses, the light is still a bit too intense for me, so don’t expect me to come into active development soon.
I’m too excited now, I highly recommended to everyone, just do the preliminary tests and if your doctor gives you the green light go for it, no second thought. Finally, some freedom. Thanks to all the people that supported me (online/RL), much appreciated.
PS: RSIBreak is great, it notifies me about my next pause plus my eye drop time
