The Fourth And Final Installment

Expect a quiet one from me this week. On Tuesday morning I'll be heading to my eye clinic for the fourth and what I expect to be the final laser eye operation to fix my previously piss poor eyesight.

For the last six months or so I've had perfect vision in my right eye and slightly less than perfect in my left eye. That was because, about six months ago, I had the laser thing redone on my right eye after the first op wasn't quite as successful on both eyes as had been hoped. Confused? Me Too.

So, I'll be having the best part of a week off work hanging around the house. As this is the fourth time I've gone through this I'm a bit of a dab hand and know what to expect. I expect some days of tiredness, of headaches, of not wanting to do much and of sheer boredom.

The thought of sitting around and reading, watching TV and listening to music is a nice one but alas, idealistic and wholly unrealistic too. Anything involving use of my eyes just feels knackering for the first few days. Sleeping will be my main activity, which is one that will play to my strengths, then some serious drum practice may be in order too.

I think it will mean some very quiet blogging days. A week of no posts whatsoever is a distinct possibility in these parts. But I know that I'll return with perfect eyesight and the ability to proof read both sides of anything I write rather than just the right side.

I think that I should come back with a full write up of laser eye surgery too. How it feels, how it looks and how it smells. Yes, I think I just might.

Have a good week all.

See you soon!

There are some Mac side things to make Safari go a bit easy on the eyes.
