So I'm getting Lasik done. It was supposed to be done this Friday, but it got pushed back to next Monday. The type of laser that I needed wasn't available at the Milwaukee TLC center when I went in for the initial consultation last November, but a new one was supposed to be installed by the middle of December.
So now, unless I want to wait for an indefinite amount of time, I have to travel to Madison to get it done. No big deal, I guess, except that you have to have someone there to drive you home, and my wife and I had already taken Friday off, so we had to undo that and get Monday off instead. Plus, there's a follow-up appointment the next day, so instead of having it on Saturday, I have to take off next Tuesday as well. My boss was real happy about that...
At any rate, I'm excited. I've been in glasses since I was nine, wore contacts for awhile, but they started bothering my eyes and I can't wear them anymore, so I've been back in glasses for about two years now. I hate not being able to wear normal sunglasses.
The nice thing is, my insurance is picking up the tab. If all goes well, next year, my wife will probably get it done as well as she is covered, too.
BTW, I'm writing this with Safari. It's fantastic for /. A page with 400 comments would take about a minute to render in IE for Mac. With Safari, it's on in a couple of seconds. Cool!
