Knitting. . . and new eyes!

Hi everyone, I just wanted to pop on and say that everything went well with my eye surgery :-) I can now see without contacts and it's AMAZING! To be honest for the first few days I don't think it actually sank in, I mean, because of the 'dry eyes' afterwards I just felt like I still had contacts in. In fact I kept feeling like I was sleeping in my contacts because I would go to sleep being able to still see the room before I put out the light, and I would wake up and the room wasn't blurry and I didn't have to reach for my glasses!

I didn't have to have any down time from knitting, so I've been working on the green bolero still and trying to get past the patterned edge of Soleil so I can keep that as 'easy knitting' when I take it to my daughter's piano lesson (or anywhere else I want to take knitting with me). I just can't show any progress pics cos my hubby took the camera away with him this weekend.

If anyone wants to read more about my Lasik Eye Procedure you can read it HERE on my daily blog.

I'll be back in a few days with more knitting updates.
Hope you've all had a great 4th of July weekend.

I'm so glad it went well. I don't think I could ever do it, but I know people who have and think it's the best thing they ever did. Congrats!

Glad to hear all went well with your surgery! You are so brave! I saw it performed once on TV and it looked just like something from A Clockwork Orange. They'd have to knock me out completely! And how amazing you lost NO knitting time?! Amazing.

YEY! So glad to hear it went great! It must be wonderful to be able to wake up and see the alarm clock without putting on your glasses! :) Awesome!

Congrats on a successful surgery. It will give you a bit of your freedom back. My sister had the surgery done a few years ago and loved it. No more glasses; no more contacts.
I haven't bothered. My eyesight isn't that bad. The only time I need glasses is when I'm driving.
