For those who knew my plans:
No eye surgery next month.
I won't go into all the details, but short form is, I am not a good candidate for LASIK. Too much correction, not enough cornea. I am a good candidate for a lens implant, but my left eye needs a toric lens, which hasn't yet been approved by the FDA.
So no eye surgery this year, probably.
Frustrated. Cranky. But it's the right choice.
I suppose this will make getting the novel done easier.
