To see or not to see..

Dear Dr. G.,

Thank you very much for doing all the preliminary exams necessary making it possible to go through with the Lasik procedure this morning. (to correct my vision)

Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be coming. Nothing personal I can assure you. Just don’t think my legs are capable of getting me there.

Anyway, I am really starting to get used to not being able to see. Really I am. I’m even thinking it comes in handy sometimes. Plus I still have about 10 pairs of Daily wear contact lenses in my drawer, quite frankly it’s not even ecologically correct to waste those lenses like that. Did I also mention that I woke up with torcicollo?(which means a sore neck for my non Italian readers.)
Even if I did want to come I can’t find that 20 page consent form written in Italian, that you sent me. Plus have you seen the sun in Milan today!!?? I mean certainly it can not be a plus to have my eyes operated with this blaring sun!

Thank you also for the Lexotan, I’m sure it will come in handy some day.

If you could just let S-man(who is probably there now) know that I won’t be coming that would be great too!

Cordiali Saluti,

    oh dear! you know something? You’re not alone! I’ve got pretty bad vision and have been wearing glasses since about a month before I turned 7. I would be quite scared of Lasik too, although doctors have said I’d be a good candidate… maybe one day when I’m ready. By the way, your last post on the Lexotan reminded me of when I got pregnant and searched for videos on childbirth, thus rendering myself horribly frightened… In the end I used hypnoirthing and it was NOTHING like the screaming scare stories you see online… it was wonderful! Maybe some self-hypnosis if you try to do the surgery in the future??

    • Hi R.,
      You’re absolutely right! It’s incredible but 3 out of 10 people I talk to have wanted to/thought about having laser to have their vision corrected!(I talk to a lot of people.) ahem (I talk a lot. punto;) Anyway, happy to have done it..and as always I had loads of fun writing about it. Buona giornata, Grace

    Ops…. Done.
    (Unfortunately now you have to tolerate my spaghetti-English….)
    Simply, Lexotan made his dirty job, and Grace’s legs led the whole body to the clinic. She said she wasn’t scared at all. At the contrary, she was very “tranquilla”; that means “very calm”.
    Sure, so calm that after the 20th time she said that, I understood she was terrorized.
    I locked the door of the operating room, and both the eyes went towards their destiny.
    And now?
    Now it’s me, scared. Grace have my phone number of course, and I’m looking at the screen waiting for the fatal call at two o’clock in the morning….

  3. Hahahaha, I truly hope “S” man is not waiting for you, if he is you better give him a valium. Please let me know what happened, Love Angie

    • Dear Angie, you have twitter!!?? I need to get on a move on the social network scene! Operation went well, thank you. I can finally spy on my neighbors whenever I want;-);-) Just kidding. sort of. baci, Grace
