"If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants."
-Sir Isaac Newton
It's been 4 days since I underwent LASEK eye surgery at Dream Eye Center in Gangnam and thankfully it has been the best day yet. My vision is still blurry but the pain has finally stopped and I can open my eyes for longer than 5 minutes at a time. It is still hard to believe that I can see without contacts or glasses but it is real. Technology will never cease to amaze me; the fact that planes stay in the air still boggles my mind, the internet and it infinite wonders is beyond my comprehension and the fact that a laser can scan my eye for a minute and make vision possible is just too unbelievable! Yet all of these things are part of my life, it is really quite remarkable. I am so thankful for all these wonderful blessings that people 100 years ago couldn't have dreamed of! I'm not sure what's more amazing, the technology itself or the people that create it. We really have come a long way...
Quick shout out to the wonderful people at Dream Eye Center! They have such great customer service (Choo, the English speaking eye technician is so helpful, he answered all my questions, explained everything in detail and is such a nice man!), they are professional and give above standard medical treatment. I would most definitely recommend them to anyone even THINKING about having laser eye surgery in Korea. It is really affordable, quick and mostly painless (although LASEK does cause some pain in the following days, but they told me this before and gave me pain relief drops) I am so glad I did this here, it really is going to change my life and I can't wait to be able to see 100% (should take about 1 month for perfect vision, although it's day 4 and I can already see pretty well.)
As you can see, I am always changing my blog up, just can't decide what I like and when I do, I get bored too easily... Like I have said before, this blog is a reflection of me and my point of view which is always learning and evolving. Such is life.
