Upcoming Eye Surgery

I'll be out of commission for the next little while as I embark on my second of two eye surgeries.  I have a corneal disease called keratoconus, which makes the bonds in my cornea weak so that the surface bulges (my sixth ever blog post talks about it, and even includes a mapping of my eyes as they were at the time).  Keratoconus is a degenerative disease, and the cross-linking surgery I'm getting is meant to halt the progression rather than improve the situation.  Not so exciting, given the price tag and painful recovery, but better than the possibility of a cornea transplant one day.

I'm going to schedule a few posts over the next few days while I recover from the surgery.  This means I won't be posting links on Twitter/G+/Facebook, so if you enjoy the blog, I'd love to have you stop by, leave a comment for me to respond to later, and maybe even subscribe!
