I genuinely don’t even know where to begin with this post. I am beyond over the moon with my eyesight. To be told that I have 20/20 vision is just incredible. The minute the optometrist told me, I had tears in my eyes. I couldn’t believe that 24hrs earlier I had struggled to read the first line without my glasses in an opticians & now I could read the faintest of letters on the chart.
If you are an avid follower of my blog you will have read my blog post on Why I Chose Optilase as my clinic to get the procedure done. If you haven’t read it, you can read it HERE. Optilase is an Irish owned clinic with the best surgeons and safest technology. They also offer a lifetime quaranttee which I thought was AMAZING and the consultation is free. Some clinics charge for a consultation so that is a bonus with Optilase. They are also open 7 days a week so really helpful for me and my crazy unpredictable rosters. I read a lot of their testimonials and they really helped with my decision too. Optilase also have ten locations all around Ireland. They have extremely flexible opening hours including weekends and late evenings, allowing them to work around your busy schedule.
Nearly a week on after my laser eye surgery, I am feeling so good. My eyes are totally back to normal and I feel great. As mentioned in my previous blog post, I am doing a full video for you all which will be up next month. This will include a 4-day video diary for you all to see how I was feeling the day after when I woke up, after my first appointment and each day after the surgery. It will give you all a real insight into what I felt each day. I wanted it to be so real for you to see so I hope you will like it when it goes live. It will be my first video so I’m nervous but excited for you all to see it.
I will forever be grateful for this treatment and never be able to repay them. There were so many reasons to why I wanted to get this done and I can’t believe how much it changes your life.
For example this all maybe silly to you reading this who has perfect sight but for me, someone who has worn glasses for over 16years now, they are life changing.
- I can see my eyes in the mirror. Don’t laugh but genuinely that was the first thing I noticed. I could stand back and look in the mirror & I could see my own eyes for the first time in FOREVER.
- I can go to the cinema and actually sit at the back of the cinema now.
- I can see road signs on the side of the road
- I can wear sunglasses now driving instead of having to wear my sunglasses
- I can see down the entire airplane without squinting (I work as cabin crew)
- I can go flying in an airplane now and be able to see all the views
- I can see details on things I never knew were even there
- I can snowboard without fearing for my life now. I was basically snowboarding blind wearing now glasses for the past 10 years.
These are just some ways of how laser eye surgery has changed my daily life, both in work and at home. I can only imagine how it would feel for someone who wears glasses constantly 24/7, it must be insane for them. I genuinely from the bottom of my heart cannot thank Optilase enough for this treatment. Without a shadow of doubt, I would highly recommend them to anyone even remotely considering it. You can go for the FREE CONSULTATION if you are considering it, to see what works best for you.
Watch out for the video coming soon. I will talk about the whole procedure from start to finish in much more detail and about how I felt in the run up to the treatment and each day after.
