Eyeball update

So I finally got around to writing about the surgery and posting it. I was going to cross post it from my site, but it did some strange spacing things when I put it into lj, so I'll just link it here. I'd really love for people to check it out, even just to appreciate the tables I made :P I warn you though, it's not for the squeamish!

about the post-op: Good news is I haven't damaged my eye and it's healing nicely AND my vision is better than 20/20.

Bad news is that I sleep with my eyes open (don't ask) and they're critically dry. I now have to put in eye gel and ointment in them to keep them lubricated. I'm hoping this won't be forever.

Anyhoo, that's all I feel like typing for now.

Actually, I don't mind about the gel, it's actually awesome stuff!

Is it sleep apnia? (sp?)

My good friend had the same "sleeping with his eyes open" thing. He went to a sleep clinc and they managed to fix it. I don't think they used staples or anything either.

His favorite story about sleeping with his eyes open was that, just before he fell asleep, his would still be seeing everything. Once, he saw a chip of paint fall from the ceiling and watched it as it landed on his eye.

Ewww!

Re:
Hmm, I don't think it's sleep apnia... as far as I know that's usually accompanied with a sudden stopping of breathing, and I don't have that. I never thought of visiting the sleep clinic though... that might be something to look into.

I can't imagine watching a paint chip fall into my eye.... that would just be.... so freaky! I'm VERY overprotective of my eyes now :P
