After waiting nearly four months in anticipation for PRK corrective eye surgery, my day had finally come. I showed up at LASIK MD with sunglasses, a ride home and a white shirt – I’ve been told to show no fear and sweat seeping through colour would have given me away for sure. Nervous? Petrified. I was about to willingly lie under a laser as it reshaped my cornea. What the hell was I thinking?
I’m two weeks away from undergoing PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy) and after fielding incoming questions from my vision enhance friends and colleagues, I’ve started to seriously consider whether undergoing eye surgery is worth the risk.
