Thirteen years ago I had laser eye surgery. In this procedure, the patient lies on a table, staring at the light. Behind the light is a computer guided laser, reshaping your cornea to correct your vision.
I so vividly remember this simultaneously exciting and terrifying event. The first eye went fine.
“Stare at the light and don’t look away.”
As they began the second eye, I suddenly realized I looked away! “Oh No!”
The laser immediately stopped. The surgeon told me to look back at the light. The computer-guided memory of the laser began again, exactly where it had left off.
The second eye was better “than perfect” when my vision was checked.
The laser was precision set for my eye. It was exact to the uniqueness of my situation.
