I can SEE!

Yes, I really can see. I just had ICL surgery for those wondering. It is basically an implantable collamer lense. (ICL) The doc goes in and implants a contact lense that will stay there permanently. I could instantly see, be it a little blurry because my eyes were dilated the size of a plate. So, it seems a little strange still. Last night when I went to bed, I automatically tried to take of my glasses. Seems after 35 years of taking off my glasses to go to bed it has become a habit! Also yesterday my eyes seemed a little tired, probably because I read too much, but I found myself thinking...I should go take out my contacts, because that is what I usually do when my eyes are tired. So....So far, I love it. I can't wait to go swimming and not have splashes on my glasses, or floating contacts. Maybe I will finally be good at marco polo...Oh yeah, I really can't swim very well, so that probably won't really help!

I can't imagine how great that must be! You'll have to let me know how the ICL works long term. Congrats on being able to see at night!

That is so cool! I loved it when I had my PRK done and didn't need glasses anymore. Sadly, age is catching up with me and while I don't need reading glasses, I need distance glasses. Should I try contacts, the I would have to have reading glasses to see. I opted for the distance glasses and just have to yank them off to read, sew, quilt etc. BTW Terra, Did you machine quilt the brown quilt on your bed, it is gorgeous! You might have to tell me more about machine quilting.
