The David is getting his eyes lasered today. I can hardly believe that such a technology even exists. I don’t like to think about eyeballs in the best of circumstances. Contemplating the process of cutting a flap in the eye and then zapping around in there with a laser beam… well, just. Shock. Horror. Yuckeroni.
Even though I know it will be fine and that lots of people have done it, it’s still rather terrifying.
The fear aside, I also feel rather strangely about how he just won’t have glasses anymore. He really can’t see at all without glasses, so they are a real part of his face and I can’t believe that he just won’t have them any more. This is a face that I’m so used to, a face that I love, and it’s about to change.
