I’m off to get my eyes zapped by a laser beam.
That didn’t sound right. Y’know, when I was a kid, lasers were far cooler than they are now. Because none of us had ever seen one, except on really bad science fiction movies. In which firing one at somebody’s eyes was almost never a benevolent act.
Anyway, wish me luck. The eye doctor said there’s a fairly high chance this’ll help stave off further deterioration for several years. I seem to recall there was also some mention of blindness, but I’m pretty sure it was preceded by “There’s no chance it’ll cause.”
No, I’m not nervous.
Anyway, I’m not exactly sure whether this thing has any effect on short-term vision but it certainly seems possible. So I may not be into staring at a monitor for a while. Or maybe I will, who knows? I’ll try to report in, though.
In the meantime…
