Eye Surgery

May 21, 2010

Journaling Reads:
When I was in second grade, I took a routine test for vision at school and thought a huge E was an A. Starting that day and for the next twenty years, I wore glasses and then contact lenses and then back to glasses. I was practically blind; I couldn’t see anything without them. I remember when I was a little girl, I couldn’t get those glow-in-the-dark stars in my room because when I took off my glasses to go to bed, I couldn’t see them at all.

In 2000, I finally had laser eye surgery. It was a relatively fast decision without much research. I knew that if I read about it, discussed it, researched it, I wouldn’t go through with it.

And I am so glad I did.

It’s now been over ten years and two pregnancies later I can still see perfectly and it’s something I take for granted every single day. But I am so thankful for my eyes. So thankful that I did it. One of the first things I did after the surgery was to go and buy some glow-in-the-dark stars for my room and I still look at them every single night.
