Lasik Arizona Trip

For years I have been popping obnoxious contacts into my eyes, then resorting to migraine inducing glasses. I finally got Lasik. We came out to AZ because we got a killer deal and my mom was able to help with the kiddos. The procedure was pretty quick, less that fifteen minutes. I felt like it was straight from a sci-fi book. Eyes clamped, the smell of burning flesh from the laser, not to mention the grinding noise it made. I had to sing primary songs to myself to keep from completely flipping out. I wish they would have given something to relax, as I have heard others have gotten. I have to say that it was a rather unpleasant experience... but I am glad for the improved, albeit imperfect vision. Adios Contacts and glasses!

and of course we did a little playing there too...

first of all, the eye picture creeps me out a bit (glad I didn't see that before I had mine done!). That being said, I'm sorry you had a rough time of it! Hopefully the bruising will go away soon and you can enjoy your new perfect vision :>) Good luck!

So excited for you! Sorry it didn't feel so good though! I love your Mud Run post! Seth and I were cracking up at how clean you guys were! We were so nasty by the end!

So glad you are back in action and seeing things much more clearly now. Yikes on the pic, doesn't make me want to run out and do it too ;)

It took me a while to figure out what the eye picture was!!! But I'm glad you were able to get that done. I will have to get the name of the place you went too. Todd has been wanting to get that done but everywhere here is EXPENSIVE!!!

Ok that first picture of the eye freaks me out and I wish for your sake that they gave you something to relax as well. But I am glad it is done and you are now done with contacts and glasses. YEAH!!!
