Ok...so Vanessa got very lucky! Because of the economic recession, the place where I'm having lasik done is doing a SUPER SATURDAY which was today. I got $1000 off my laser eye surgery. SO, that mean's instead of $3500 total ($1750 per eye), it's now $2500 total! I'm doing the custom surgery otherwise it would be $1500 total. Anyway, I'm pretty estactic. Supposedly, they just sprung out this promotion because people weren't getting lasik done recently because of the failing economy, (lasik is presently considered a luxury.) Well, I guess this failing economy did one great thing for me!
Today they dilated my eyes and did tons of scans and 3D images of my eyes. I saw tons of curvatures which are called higher aberrations. They stuck tons of light in my eyes and did numerous refractive tests. Pretty much it took an 1 hr and 1/2. I also had to initial through a packet that read like a death waiver. =p
So my pupils have been huge for four hours and I've been wearing sunglasses. It should go back to normal soon.
My surgery is this Friday November 14th at 5:00. I'm Dr. Wyatt's last surgery for the day. I planned it that way so it wouldn't be too long before I could just go to bed. Anyway, my doctor said that I could bring as many people as I wanted to my surgery, so I'm just putting it out there: If anyone wants to go. It's in East Salt Lake City. My actual procedure won't be til 6:00. It will take some time for the valium to kick in. It shouldn't hurt...the valium is for my nerves. But anyway, you can't actually be in the room but there is a separate room that shows my procedure on a big screen for friends and family. You guys get to see the surgery very close up thanks to a camera that is hooked onto the machine. Anyway, if you are interested in attending, let me know and I can give you the address and details!
WOW. 6 more days!
