I can see.......

Yesterday was the big day for my laser treatment. To say that I was nervous was an understatement. I was out the nighyt before with some friends and I couldn't really enjoy myself as I had a real bad stressy headache. I woke up yesterday with a really bad tummy.. which I think was just the nerves. My appointment was at 9am and i arrived there with my hubby and good friend, Cyd. I felt ok but tummy was still playing up.

I had my consultation and they confirmed they could do the treatment (which was just as well as I already paid for it) lol. Well I had to wait for a couple of hours then as they were running behind. When they called me in for the treatment, I was taken into a room and asked to put on a lovely white hat. I was then called into the treatment room, laid down on the chair/bed and the treatment began. The whole process took about 15 mins and was pain free. The most painful bit (and this wasn't really painful just uncomfortable) was after the treatment when I git home. I found it very difficult to open my eyes so they tell you to rest on the day of the treatment so I went to bed for a couple of hours and when i woke up I was fine.

Eyes were a little blurry and I spent the evening closing them every now and again ans resting, my sight was still blurry.

I woke up thos morning to lovely clear vision, the first time in just over 30 years that I was able to see unaided...

I have been for my follow up appointment this morning and told I have 20 20 vision, they are healing fine. Need to just continue putting eye drops in and have another followup appointment next week.

It was worth every single penny.

Anyone who may be thinking of having it done - DO IT!

Thanks for reading
