So, after a good 3 or so years of saving money, it's finally starting to happen- The preparations for my ICL eye surgery!
It's pretty crazy- like, when I went in to see if I was eligible for iLasik, I went in expecting them to tell me that I wasn't able to get it, and that I'd have to just keep hunting around for frames that fitted me. I accepted that back then, then I was told I could get not only iLasik, but Implantable Collamer lens surgery
, where they inject a permanent contact lens straight in front of your normal one.
So tonight at 6pm, I'm going to go in and get measured up for a lens, in which it'll be a 14 week wait as they get hand made in Switzerland by a company called Visian ICL, and after that, my surgeon has done the most ICL surgeries in Australasia apparently, and will probably do both of my eyes over the course of a day. I'll probably need a day or two off work so I can get use to my eyesight, but I have a very good chance of not needing glasses after my surgery.
I am VERY nervous right now- I'm 9 hours before my appointment and are very nervous, but it's a thing and it's here right now! OMFG am I going to have vision like normal people do in 3 months time? What does the world really look like? I am both excited and terrified at the same time TBH.
So... yeah TuT Exciting stuff is coming!
