    Upcoming Eye Surgery

    In a few days I will go under the knife, or laser, for PRK surgery. I've always had terrible eyesight (near-sighted, can't read anything that's more than 12 inches from my face), but thankfully the military provides this surgery free of charge.

    I'm not nervous, as I know several people who have had the surgery and had zero complaints, but if you've never seen it before or if you don't know how it works, it is VERY interesting (and hard) to watch. If you want to see something that'll make you cringe, watch the following youtube video of the surgery

    The surgery center is in Maryland, and it's a shame that my schedule there is so tight, as there are plenty of people around there that I'd like to meet! Well guys, wish me luck and pray that it doesn't affect my shooting ability!

    Ok, maybe I'm slightly nervous

    Good luck, Cody!!
    I'm sure you'll bounce back just fine. You're a young guy, and after all you've yet to get a hold of your first M1 Garand!!

          Thanks everyone!
          The surgery went fine. I was amazed there was zero pain involved. I was fine the 1st day after the surgery. The 2nd day my eyes were extremely sensitive, especially to light. I woke up to eat, and then would take some medicine and go back to sleep. Day 3 and I was back to normal for the most part. Eye sight is almost perfect, but it'll take a few months before my night vision comes back. Whenever it is dark, lights are extremely bright and have "halos"/glares around them. I'm happy with it all, though. tu1>
