Today I woke up and felt great! It is so amazing to be able to see clearly.
I believe my body is adjusting to being able to see farsighted, so I am a bit dizzy. Also, since my body is working at healing my eyes, my energy is on the low side. It is a bit like having a low grade flu with aches. Now, I am sure not everyone feels this. Dr. Teplick’s office told me that many go right back to work after having Lasik. I know from experience that my system takes a bit longer to adjust.
To explain the dizzy better, think of holding a magnifying glass in front of your face and doing all your normal activities. That is an exaggeration, but I can’t think of a better way to describe it.
I’ve been using the eye drops per the instructions and using the Refresh drops as well. In general, I feel great.
I am still wearing the goggles during the day as extra precaution to not get anything in my eyes or bump them.
A regular pair of sunglasses would probably work, too. The straps on the goggles are good and tight, and if worn for extended periods, may cause a bit of a headache. The goggles themselves are fine, but the straps, at least on my head, go right behind my ear. For women that have worn plastic, decorative head bands, think of the pressure that is right at the temples if those bands are a tad too tight. For men, maybe press just a bit on your temples (lightly press), and you will get a sense of how the straps feel. To help with the tightness, I have been moving the bands to outside my ears from behind the ears.
I have also been resting my eyes a lot instead of straining them.
Right now I am wearing regular sunglasses. Tonight I plan to go pick up some cheap readers at the local drugstore.
Overall, today has been great! Sight amazing!
