Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Well friends,

 

Tomorrow is the big day.

 

When i part with 7 grand and go under the giant laser and dude with tweesers to have perspex rings inserted into my eyes.

I have a modified version of those going in, clled KeraRings. To treat:

(though my eye is NOTHING like the pics, lol)

 

Its only a one day surgery and i should notice an instant improvement once the stinging and watering goes away (instantly for some, a couple of days for others).

 

Either way, tomorrow is the day and i have 70% odds that my mind will accept the vision correction, and the surgeon has done all 20 of this operation in brisbane, and had 20 successes. So i like those odds.

 

Hopefully all goes well. Juts knew there were a few here who'd be interested in this, so there ya go.

 

Hope everyone is well.

 

Scythe.

Fight natural selection why don't you.

Naturally good eyesight isn't important to a humans survival or success these days - therefore it isn't really a matter of natural selection.

 

Because of advanced in medicine, in today's world someone with terrible eyesight might be more fit to survive than someone with good eyesight - depending on the other facts.

Nope. Dr Frank Howes i think it is.

 

and this isnt a corneal transplant, this is kerarings. mines not far enough for a transplant yet so tey're putting rings in then Cross Linking with riboflaven so it cant progress.

 

hopefully i never need an actual transplant.
