Friday Five: Windows of the Soul



This Friday Five is inspired by my husband's Lasik surgery yesterday....He'd been contemplating it for a while and was pushed over the edge by the fact that we put too much money in our healthcare spending account this year and it would have been gone anyway. (There was only enough for one eye, but the kind people at the eye clinic figured out a way to divvy up the charges between surgery and followup in January=next year's spending account). So please say a little prayer for his safe recovery and share with us your thoughts on eyes and vision.

1. What color are your beautiful eyes? Did you inherit them from or pass them on to anyone in your family?

2. What color eyes would you choose if you could change them?

3. Do you wear glasses or contacts? What kind? Like 'em or hate 'em?

4. Ever had, or contemplated, laser surgery? Happy with the results?

5. Do you like to look people in the eye, or are you more eye-shy?

Bonus question: Share a poem, song, or prayer that relates to eyes and seeing.

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation in the comment box: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a> For a complete how-to, click here.

  6. I played here, thanks for an inspired Friday Five!
    Also, I edited my December 12 and prematurely published December 13 posts to include two lovely YouTube videos. Now, I need to prepare and schedule some more of those. By the way, last night I watched A Christmas Story (an annual event) and there's one color eyes I would not like to have -- those yellow ones that Scut Farkas had in the movie. Suppose those were contacts?

  15. Thanks for the comments on mine! I want to pass the word about Keratoconus - it is way undiagnosed. If you have persistent astigmatism that the docs have a hard time correcting, if you have lots of trouble with glare, see halos around lights, etc., then get to a clinic with computerized topography. Doc in the Box at the mall will miss this.

    The recommended correction is contacts. And your eye exams become covered medical expenses!

    May see beauty all around!

  19. Thanks for the PSA, Prisca--I had never heard of that.

    And thanks, everyone, for the prayers and good wishes for DH. He was pretty trashed last night but woke up this morning sounding like the former blind men in the Gospel..."I can see! I can see!"

    Really enjoying everyone's play.
