Living with LASIK

I had LASIK surgery one year ago today.

Everything went well, and ever since the initial recovery period my vision has been fantastic.  I have consistently tested at 20/15 in my periodic follow up appointments.  I have to admit that I've just been taking good vision for granted for several months now.  It's been long enough that it doesn't really feel different just feels like it's the way it's supposed to be.

I just had my one year follow up appointment this past Thursday afternoon.  The doctor said everything looks great and that I shouldn't need to see him again until my next regular annual examination.  One of the clinicians at the office I go to suggested I use my insurance allowance to get sunglasses since I don't need glasses or contacts anymore.  I typically just pickup cheap-o sunglasses at Wal-Mart or whatever for $10-15.  So I treated myself to my first nice pair of sunglasses.

I love them!  They actually fit right and everything actually looks clear and sharp as well as shaded through them.  The difference between these and the cheap-o ones I usually get is quite significant.  I guess this is one of those cases where you do get what you pay for.

You may also notice that my hair is starting to get pretty long--for me, anyway.  My hairstylist suggested I grow it out a couple months ago, so that's what I've been doing.  I've tried growing it longer in the past, but it always just gets huge and out of control.  I get frustrated and end up cutting it.  Interestingly, I've been going to my hairstylist more often during this time for trimming and thinning.  It's kept it under control, so I'm hopeful that this foray into longer hair may prove more successful.
