In One Week..........

In one week, next Wednsday, I am having eye surgery, specifically Strabismus Eye Surgery. Strabismus surgery is surgery on the extraocular muscles to correct the misalignment of the eyes. With approximately 1.2 million procedures each year, extraocular muscle surgery is the third most common eye surgery in the United States. I had this surgery back in 2006 and it went very well and I was able to wear contacts for my wedding! For years I have been dealing with double vision and nystagmus. The amount of prisms that I had in my glasses progressively got more and more to the point where my double vision was all the time and my eye was drifting so it was surgery time! I am anxious, scared and excited all at once. I am not looking forward to the anesthesia or the recovery but just want it dont, so I can start seeing better!
