24 hours after Lasik

It’s been 24 hours since my laser eye surgery.  Right eye is 20/20, left eye is better than 20/20.  I’m wearing chemistry class goggles to bed and on the dusty streets when it’s too dark for sunglasses.  Dropping antibiotics three times a day, a healing steroid every waking hour, and artificial tears when needed (so far not needed).  No swimming or boxing or basketball for the next six months.

Vision should improve over the following days as cornea heals.  Video to follow shortly.

  1. Great story JP, I always like the way you tell of your experiences, especially the China moments, which are familiar to anyone who has been submerged in a new culture. Wishing you a speedy and full healing.
