Hey My Dear Readers!!

How have you been? It's been some time since I posted anything. Oh well, I've been kind of busy - recuperating actually.

I just underwent LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) to correct my myopia and astigmatism two weeks back. My myopia were not very bad to begin with, but because I've been wearing contact lenses for over a decade, my eyes are starting to 'reject' them - I get headaches and dry eyes whenever I wear contact lenses. So after doing my research about LASIK, I decided to take the plunge and had my surgery done by an excellent surgeon at the Singapore National Eye Centre.

Right now, my vision is 6/6(or 20/20) on my right eye. My left is not as sharp yet because my myopia and astigmatism were higher to begin with, but it's improving. I am also having dry eyes now, which is pretty common after LASIK, but should settle within the next 1-3 months. But life is great without having to fumble with glasses or contact lenses :)

I'm sorry for the lack of food-related posts, simply because I have not been baking since the surgery, and also trying to spend less time before the computer to allow my eyes to recover properly. But I promise to come back with more bakes in September. Wait for me, okay? :p Also, a big thanks to those of you who had sent me your well-wishes, appreciate it!

Hi Angie, welcome back! I am sure it feels good to have perfect vision...I stopped wearing contact lens too, after wearing for like 20 years! My eyes also get very dry and red. I don't have the courage to go for LASIK...and I'm starting to have long sightedness...getting real old already!!! Looking forward to your new bakes :)
