I am logging my healing process from PRK eye laser surgery because I found it extremely helpful and reassuring to read others’ recovery stories. Yes, the burning, the dryness, the sensation of sand in my eyes, the extreme sensitivity to light, the halos around light at night, and the blurry vision waxing and waning are all a normal part of the healing process. While increased safety is the advantage, the disadvantage is longer healing time – it takes 3 months or more for the eyesight to stabilize after the procedure. Several days before the surgery, I used the prescribed antibiotic eyedrops. I was instructed to take gabapentin just before the procedure (to control pain), and valium (to minimize anxiety and to help me take the recommended 4-hour nap post-surgery).

Lauren and Wintour shade themselves from their own brilliance I've never owned a pair of sunglasses—shades, if you prefer. Not because I dislike them, but because if you are as seriously myopic as I am, any filter that blocks light, however bright, reminds you of your poor sight. I could wear contact lenses and buy whatever shades I desire. I could have laser eye surgery to correct my vision, buy a pair of aviator sunglasses, and pretend I am an off-duty pilot, or Howard Hughes as played by...
