Warning: This post may be disturbing to those who can't look at red patches on the white of the eye after intralase LASIK! LOL!
Well, I wasn't informed that I'll have these red patches (due to the use of suction ring during intralase LASIK). It will only go off in 2 to 4 weeks (Not to worry, it doesn't hurt). Meanwhile, I just do not want to scare away too many people.. LOL. My cousin - Dr. Marc Wei (LASIK surgeon in Brisbane) assures me that it's perfectly normal to have these red patches -_-"
Day 1: OMG, I was so worried I went online to check if there's any picture showing how RED these red patches are supposed to be.. can't seem to find any picture to compare with..
Day 2: I consulted my surgeon (Dr. Shamala) and she said my eyes are doing fine. Still, I took pictures of my eyes and sent them to my cousin for second opinion. My vision was 25 (shortsightedness) for both eyes and 50/75 for astigmatism! It'll continue to fluctuate until the redness subsides..
Day 3: First day at work, and managed to scare SL and Charisma. HL, Mao and KK said they can.. accept the way I.. look :P
Day 4: Haven't been going out for dinner for many days.. asked Simon to buy takeaways for me!
Day 5: Went to the club house to visit Simon's parents with RED eyes..
Day 6: Birthday party at work, had to explain to many colleagues about my eyes but still managed to influence a few to go for LASIK :P
Day 7: Went for another eye check up.. supposingly 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 1 year after surgery.. Dr. Shamala said my eyes are recovering as expected.. My vision was 50 and 75 (shortsightednes); 75 and 100 for astigmatism!
Day 8: I thought my eyes look less scary today so I went to order food myself at a mamak store.
An Indian waiter, around 180cm of height, well-built, took my order:
Waiter: Makan apa? (What would you like to eat?)
Me: Maggi Goreng (Fried noodles)
Waiter: Kenapa mata you? (What's wrong with your eyes?)
Me: Err.. operation..
Waiter: Tengok mata you pun I takut (I'm so scared looking at your eyes)
I thought I should be the one feeling scared.. I mean his appearance is quite intimidating.. but can you imagine I scared off a guy who could easily crush my bones? LOL!
Day 9: My eyes were really dry and I bought GenTeal Eye Gel from Dr. Shamala..
Hopefully the redness will subside in another 1 to 2 weeks!
