20/15 and lovin every minute!

I can see, I can see, I can see!! That's right, I got lasik eye surgery. Thanks to my dad, he gave me the gift of sight for college graduation (1 1/2 yrs ago). On September 11, 2008 Quinn and I drove to Hoopes Lasik Eye Clinic, I arrived in my glasses (which I had been wearing for 2 weeks prior)

Read all the precautionary instructions

And had my vision tested one final time before going under the knife (or lazer in this case)

After they cut the cornea, they have you sit in a massage chair for 30 minutes with your eyes closed while your eyes adjust. The whole time the chair is massaging and they bring fresh baked chocolate chip cookies!!

Here I am, with Quinn (my support the whole time), dropping my un-needed glasses in a donation bin. Who needs glasses when you can see 20/15!!!!

Linds!!!! I haven't seen your blog forever. You guys are so cute. We'll I am so happy to hear you got lasik eye surgery. I have been wanting it for years. I want to hear all about it. How bad where your eyes before? Also did it take anytime to get to 20/15? Sorry for all the questions but I am pumped to hear all about it!

Congrats on the successful surgery! My parents have both done it and LOVE not worrying about glasses/contacts.

Best wishes!
