The Big "S" Word

It's not as bad as it sounds. It's elective surgery - lasik. I had a bunch of pre-screening tests done and I am a candidate. I still have a couple more tests to do the day of the surgery and
I could still be turned away, but so far so good. My surgery is scheduled for December 15th.

Yesterday was my pre-screening exam and I had this eye dilation thingy. It was my second one in a month, although this one was a stronger solution. It was really weird having this stuff put in my eyes. I felt kinda woozy and kinda felt like I was drunk. My appointment was at 2:30, and my eyes were finally not dialted 24 hours later. The whole dilation thing was weird 'cuz I couldn't see things up close without extreme blurring. So - I spent the night sitting on the couch watching tv.

May I ask how my lasik costs?

I want lasik. But my insurance doesn't cover it and I am a poor person living in L.A. Actually, I'm poor because I live in L.A. If I lived anywhere else, I might even be rich!

Someday.

It's about $4K for both eyes.

I better get saving my money then!!!!! Maybe in 10 years I could afford it. I would just love to open my eyes in the morning and see whatever I look at--rather than a blurry fuzz.
