Thanks mate. I’m day 4 post op and everything seems to be healing up well. Not had to touch any pain meds and no real discomfort. Will throw some pics up once it starts growing in. Hopefully on the Tory comeback

I’m -6 in one and -1.25 in the other. Definitely leaning that way after all the info on here.

get a decent pair like Andy made and they'll last you 11+ years and counting Cool

I've got the start of a receding hairline. Would definitely considering getting it sorted in future. My hair is really thick everywhere else but the receding hairline fucks up the look a bit and I have to keep it pretty short.

Any Patagonia technical fleece is good.

Their Nano Air jackets are excellent as well, and I adore mine.

I wear a Paramo Taiga Fleece for work when it gets colder, is water resistant as well and drys very quick.

More functional than fashion, but I quite like it and tend to live in them in winter when I’m not working.

It was mild discomfort for about 5 seconds and I had perfect vision the next morning and actually drove to the place to have my follow up virtually 18 hours later and got the all clear.

Do it. Cool
