The Day I Got Lasik-ed!

What a wonderful birthday present I got this year! After 19 years of wearing spectacles and 15 years of wearing contact lenses, finally I can say goodbye to them. My eyes went through "Bladeless Lasik" today at Prince Court Medical Centre, thanks to Prof Dr Muhaya Hj Mohamad, a renowned ophtamologist.

Alhamdulillah, the lasik surgery went smoothly and according to the Prof, it went on record time of 20 minutes. Just imagine, it only takes 20 minutes to correct your sight! What a technological marvel!

After the surgery, I had to stay back for 3 hours before being checked by the doctor and go home. The first hour of the wait was agonising for me as I felt that my eyes were burning and I was tearing non-stop. They assured me that it was normal and it differed between patients. After that all was well and good.

The best part of this experience, the whole prep and surgery was recorded by my camera crew so it be shown on RTM soon. So stay tuned for that! :)
