Friday Roundup: Eyes, Taxes, and Life

by Kristina on April 20, 2012 · 5 comments

Happy Friday DINKS.  It’s Friday April 20th and in 5 days I am having eye surgery.  My right eye is crossed and has been this way since birth.  After 31 years of having crossed eyes (or as my parents say a lazy eye) there is finally some new technology that can improve the look (and straightness) of my eyes.

This eye surgery is purely esthetic; it will not correct my eye prescription or vision.  I am not nervous about my surgery; I am actually more excited than anything else. I can’t believe that I am actually going to be able to wear contact lenses without be self conscious about the way that my eyes look.  The only thing that I am a little bit scared about is going under the general anesthetic.  I am a little bit scared that the general anesthetic won’t be effective and that I may be awake surgery. But that is just my own little fear, I am sure that it won’t happen.

Have a great weekend DINKS and enjoy these posts from around the web:
