BTW - the reference was to Donut's birthday.

Well time has fair passed by and my trip to ole Croydon town is nearly upon us and I will be making the journey down on Friday.
That means that tonight is probably the last time I will be on-line for quite some time, all depending on what is done and how well it heals.
It also means the last time I will drive for a while too and maybe I will get a little fitter walking rather than taking the car. :)

I will be back . . . . . :) :)

All eye vibes gratefully received. :)

Big BossMan of Optimax is funding this all for free and has agreed that whatever I want they will cover the cost of to give it the very best chance of improving my sight.

Don't know if they intend doing the second eye at the same time till I get down there tomorrow when they will make the decision.

Must admit the time off work will be nice though. :)

My assistant in work is fully prepared to step in and keep things going when I am off - though she did tell me she was looking for another job on Monday. Hope the two things aren't connected! :)

I hope that doesn't mean it's your job she's applying for while your back is turned... I've worked for organisations where that wouldn't have been too great a surprise. ::)

Nope - I have seen the two jobs she is interested in. One is at the same scale as she is at doing very similar work with the advantage that she would get a permanent contract. The other is more or less out of her league and would put her on a much higher pay scale. As for my job she is having kittens just thinking about the next few weeks so doesn't want all the hassle of it full time! :)

Actually when we interviewed her last year we took the decision not to tell any of the candidates that I would probably not be around for the first month when they started. To be fair she was well and truly chucked in the deep end and did very well - though I did walk in to see her on her very first day and popped back and fore a few times a week just to make sure she was settling in OK. I will miss her if she leaves - more so cos they will want evreything she has been doing and everything I do!! :(

Casp is back  :drunk:

Been banned for a week and now me week is up I can pop by for short periods only.

Had a bit of an adventure when I made the trip to Croydon and ended up getting there 45 minutes late. Brother in law had recently bought a new sat nav gizmo (Bargain at £145) which is very very good but instead of going round the bottom of the M25 and up to Croydon I decided to follow the sat nav gizmo and go directly through outer London. This proved to be not the best move in the world cos it was stop-start for mile after mile and took nearly 2 hours to do just 25 miles. The result was instead of getting there about 1½ hours early we arrived late and had not time for food so were both late and hungry!!  :u  :lh:  :hithead:

My fault entirely but I must admit that I was most impressed with his NavMan gizmo - totally reliable and very easy to use. (If you want to go via a direct route).

Met my Professor again who is remarkably down to earth and a very likeable person, had loads of eye tests and scans and have now had the same eye re-treated for the 5th and hopefully final time. This is the best experience of any of them - my night vision is totally free of star bursts, flaring or any of the night vision problems that I had before. I no longer have double vision and everyone who had ghosts stood next to them are now on their own for the first time in many years.

With their simulation I was reading the bottom line of the very smallest text on the eye chart which is superb. I had the wavefront treatment which provides the very best scan of the surface of the eye and aims to eliminate the lumps and bumps that cause problems at night and at the moment it seems to have worked perfectly. I have gone from very long sighted in one eye to slightly short sighted, all in about 30 seconds. As the eye heals and the surface smoothes over it will return to a zero prescription.

Whereas last time I was in constant pain from the irritation of the contact lens they fit this time I didn't have to use a single drop of anaesthetic and the recovery has been excellent.

On the Tuesday following treatment my vision had improved so much that I could read the Sky guide on the TV from around 25 feet away. Unfortunatley, the next day this has gone and my vision is now blurry again but that is normal and that sharpness should return shlowly over the next few months. Even if I get near that clarity it is a massive improvement considering all the treatments I have had previously and a huge improvement over the untreated eye.

All being well I should be looking at around February / March for the other eye to be treated, which will be done using the very latest techniques where healing is less than a day and you can see immediately after the procedure.

So far so good - got to remember to keep taking my eye drops and it should continue on this path. Got a scan in Bristol on 17th November where I will find out how well it has been corrected.
