Bye Bye Glasses!

Very soon, I will be having surgery and I may be unavailable to blog for a short while.

To be precise, I am having laser eye surgery.

I have needed to wear glasses to see long distance since I was 16 and they're definitely something I don't suit. They're a pain too; have you tried being at a concert wearing them? They also make wearing falsies a pain and rub your make-up off.

I went to a consultation at Optimax Express who ran some tests on me to see whether or not I'd be suitable; I'm pleased to say I am!



I'm get the LASIK procedure, which is the one where they make the corneal flap so my eyes will be really gross for a few days. There are two types of laser they can use, but due to my iris I am only suitable for the type that will heal any imperfections in my eye and remove my prescription.

Basically the normal iris in the eye is usually 5mm but mine are 8.4mm and 8.7mm haha.

I'm getting the flap created the mechanical way instead of the IntraLase way since it was sooooo much more expensive. I'm paying a pretty penny for what it is right now!

I'll keep you guys updated once I've had the procedure!

Something fun for you guys; during my consultation they put drops in my eyes to keep my pupils dialated. ...They were like this for hours. Have you tried looking into light and going shopping with dinner plate pupils?!



Until next time!

  1. I'm so jealous!!! I have to wear glasses and I can't seem to ever find comfortable contacts. D:

    I can't wait to read your updates on the procedure!! I had a friend who went for the consultation and they put way too much of the drops in his eyes and they were like that for almost two days - LOL.

    1. I can't wear contacts either as I'm useless with them! I'm so pleased I'm eligible for this surgery - less than a month away now!

      Hahaha I would've died if my eyes were like that!

  2. I want my eyes done, but not until I'm older. Glasses are a pain but I quite like wearing them. My optician said mine are getting worse but they're still visually good. I just need glasses for watching TV as I'm short sighted :)

    My stepmam get hers done a few years ago she's always said its the best thing she's done.

    1. I wanted my eyes done whilst I'm still young. I figured the worse they got the more expensive it'd be hahaha.

      I keep hearing that! I'm so excited!

    1. I'm mainly short sighted and I can't read things too far ahead of me. I have to wear glasses to drive and at the cinema and concerts and stuff.

  4. Good luck with the procedure! I've been wearing glasses for so long that they're a part of me... I can't imagine not wearing them.

    1. Ouch, that sucks! My mum talked me into this since I was really worried about the cost so I'm really lucky to have her. The procedure itself only takes 2 - 3 minutes!
