In my late teens I started work on a new newspaper being launched in my city.

As you may have read previously, I’m a Mum. My son is now nineteen months and recently he’s been waking up every other night at crazy o’clock! Total nightmare. Before my surgery, getting up in the night was really difficult for me. I used to wear contact lenses most of the time, so if he woke up, I would have to roam a dark house trying to remember where I put my glasses. Not that easy when you can’t see. Now, getting up is not a problem at all.

So you’ve already heard about my eyesight history, and my deciding factors for laser eye surgery… now it’s time to talk about the actual procedure itself.

Rather than blog it, I thought I’d vlog it… I think you can see a little difference in my confidence already… I babble on for nearly 15 minutes, so grab a cuppa and make yourself comfortable!
