Well, today’s laser capsulotomy went quite well. The procedure itself took about five minutes and my vision returned to normal after only a few hours. My eye felt irritated for a while, but that has gone away now. It does feel tired, though, and after using the computer for a bit this evening, it definitely feels like I need a break.
Laser eye surgery feels really weird. I don’t know how to describe it, exactly. It didn’t hurt at all, but I could definitely feel each laser pulse hitting my eye with a very sharp (as in quick, not painful) force. It would first hit inside my eye, which I would feel, and then the force, I guess, would travel through the soft tissue so that a fraction of a second later, I felt the same pulsing sensation in my top molars.
Anyway, it all went really well and I’m home and will take it easy tonight and tomorrow, and probably get back to work tomorrow evening for a couple of hours.
