Mo Here - Ok - so this does not have to do with my weight loss, my new lifestyle or even my exercising. Well, maybe it does have to do with a new lifestyle. I am looking for some feedback ...
I recently had Lasik Eye Surgery. I have been waiting for over 5 years to have this done, ok - well, actually FOREVER!! After many years of waiting, doing my research, taking the time to go to the eye doctor and have all the proper tests done, hearing about how successful others have been with Lasik I finally took the plunge. Veterans Day November 2010 - I finally had my surgery. Now, we have all heard the stories - it is wonderful, it is great, the best thing ever - and I really do believe that. However, in the process of having this surgery you can develop a dry eye issue. I am having that issue. I knew the risks, I was ready for it, but not sure I was ready for the next step. With my dry eyes I have been following my doctors orders to the best of my ability - taking my flag seed oil (oh, how to you spell that) and putting in my lubricant eye drops more times then I can count. However, here is the part that is scaring me....my doctor is recommending that he put in Eye Plugs. Little plugs that they will insert into the tear duct area of my eyes. They are not supposed to hurt or you don't even need to have a special "procedure" done - they just "pop" right in. Then these will help lubricate my eyes more. I have done a bit of research and even heard first hand a little bit of information I didn't really want to hear. My appointment is Tuesday. Should I get the plugs or shouldn't I??? Even with the plugs I may have to go back in for a minor touch up, but can't do the touch up until they can see that my eyes are doing better with the tears forming with the help of these plugs.
Anyone out there in blog world had this issue? What have you experienced and is there any real good link or words of wisdom / advice you can give me. Should I have the eye plugs put in, what are the risks, are there really good benefits to it. Thanks for the help!!
