for once, something on me is TOO thin, and that's bad.

so i went to charlotte on tuesday to dr. christenbury's (christenbury eye center) to get a free screening to see if i qualify for lasik. well after they did like 30 tests and dilated me and i sat around forever, dr. christenbury (OMG! celebrity!) finally came in for about 3 minutes to tell me that my corneas are too thin and my astigmatism is too bad to get lasik. BOO. heredity is a bitch.

he said there is a new procedure that will be approved by the FDA in the next few months that would be good for me. it's kind of like a contact lens implant in my eye. it's a lot like this. so i'm going back in 6 months. another 6 months of contacts :(.

anywho. i'm really excited because Nov. 10-12 jared and i are going to Pigeon Forge! i've never been there before. and i wanted us to go somewhere for a weekend getaway and this is where we've decided to go. just the two of us all weekend with no work! yay! we're going to have so much fun. i'm so so so so so excited. :)

Damn thin corneas, that's why they put down Old Yeller. Isn't it? No?

Booo. Maybe you should just go back to the eye dr in Hickory and let him try more contacts on you. I know it's a pain, but it's worth it to be able to see!
