New eyes

A little life update: On Wednesday the 4th and Thursday the 5th of July, I underwent laser eye surgery at the Ophthalmological clinic at Glostrup hospital.

The result is that I can now see without glasses. Just how well my eyesight has become is hard to say (it’ll up to three months to stabilise). But even so, it feels amazing. And it is pretty incredible to think that such a quick procedure (each operation took less than half an hour) can make such a big difference.

I’ve been near-sighted for most of my life, and I’ve worn glasses since I was around 10 years old. And since I’ve never really used contacts, it has not only changed how I see the world, but also how I look. So, this is me — without the glasses:

Me, sans glasses

The photo was taken at Gjógv, on the Faroe Islands a couple of weeks ago. It is a pretty spectacular place, and a very good opportunity to stretch the eyes and look at things far away. Whee!
