On Friday, I had LASIK surgery. My eyes were cut open, the cornea reshaped, and I'm now sitting in bed, able to read small text from across the room. Without glasses. I won't know my final prescription for some time, but I've clearly got good news.
Just discovered an awesome feature of Wolfram Alpha -- enter in your vision prescription, and it'll return an image of what an eye chart looks like with that vision acuity. This is what I see today. Should change in 2 weeks.
