  •  I had laser surgery for my glaucoma... (3+ / 0-)

    Worked well, as of the last tests, a decade on.

    Note to self: make this year's ophthalmologist appointment....to make sure all is still well.

    •  I am very squeamish at the thought of surgery (3+ / 0-)

      But, so I'm told, they can correct my vision while they're at it, to the point where I might be able to see well enough to not wear glasses 100% of the time. For the first time since the second grade, back in a previous century (I'm not admitting which century).

      The concept of waking up in the middle of the night and actually seeing the bedside clock without having to first reach for my glasses definately has an appeal to it. At this point I can only imagine what that is like.

        Took twice in each eye. No pain, very little discomfort, and over in less time than you would imagine ~ and I'm guessing the process has only gotten better over the last decade.

        The first time, ex-husband went with me. The other three times, I drove myself to work afterwards.
