It took me almost a year to decide whether to undergo LASIK.
Like many, it was probably the fear of the unknown that held me back. The many what ifs. What if it doesn’t turn out well or what if it’s really painful.
Upon prodding of my friends who underwent LASIK, I took an appointment with @shinagawa__ph for a comprehensive eye check up. When they told me that I’m qualified to undergo the procedure, I asked for more time to decide whether to actually pursue it or not (gusto ko pa rin huminde, haha!)
Then Christmas came.
As many of you are aware, I spent the holidays in Japan with good friends. We went to Fuji-Q and took a rollercoaster ride near Mt. Fuji. I felt so bad that I wasn’t able to clearly see the famed mountain during the ride, not because it was covered by clouds (because at that time it wasn’t), but because of my blurry vision — glasses weren’t allowed for obvious reasons.
I knew at that time that I want to, nay, I had to undergo LASIK. And I did!
You know what’s funny? The time it took me to decide was much longer than the entire LASIK procedure. (I’ll tell you how long it took in a subsequent post)
