The last two weeks!

It has been a while since I last updated. I have been busy a little bit for the last couple of weeks; Eid, photo-shooting, etc etc. As I mentioned in my previous post that I bought a DSLR camera [Canon EOS 450D] and I have been experimenting it and took some shots. Here are some of the shots that I would like to share:

One of the main reasons why I didn't update my blog in the last two week, is that I did eyes surgery for vision correction at Muscat Eye Laser Center right after Eid; namely the Lasek. It was totally hectic and painful in the first two days. I cannot describe the pain I went through but in the first two days my eyes were very itchy (and still till now but less) and whenever I blink my eyes, it's like I feel someone cutting my eyes with bare blades. Along with that, I've been advised not to get exposed to any kind of lights; not to use the laptop or watch TV and keep my eyes closed most of the time for a whole week. You can't imagine how hectic it could be, but literally, I felt like I was prisoned in my room forever.

This is how my eyes looked like in the third day. You can see the effect of tiredness

When doing Lasek surgery, in order to help healing your cornea, usually contact lenses will be placed on your eyes for a period of time. This period differs from a person to another, depending on how flat/soft your cornea is, however, in my case the lenses were placed for a week. A week later from the surgery, I went back to MELC to remove the lenses, despite the fact of their bad services, when the doctor was checking my eyes and going to remove the lenses, he removed the left lense a bit harshly and the consequence of that I got a small crack in the cornea which made me suffer another 3 days to get it fully healed. During these 3 days, my left eye was tearing all the time, even when I'm sleeping. I could have had sued the doctor for his aggressive way of removing the contact lense from my eye, but I was just being so patient and wanting to recover to my normal health ASAP. Notice the redness and the tiredness on my left eye in the picture below:

Thankfully (el7madellh), I am now feeling much more better and I must say that it was worth doing the surgery because now I see things more clearer and more 'WoW'. This is how my eyes look like now:

Just one more thing about MELC which I honstly didn't like. They have one of the worst customer service you could ever experience. If you call their Customer Service Line, no one will respond to you immediately and if you're lucky enough, they'll call you back in no less than an hour later. Notwithstanding, when they schedule you for an appointment and you arrive at the right time, you'll have to wait for another hour till it's your turn to see the doctor. Now for heaven's sake, what kind of a service is this??

Anyhow, immediately after I got my cornea fully healed I went to UAE visiting relatives in Abu Dhabi and shopping in Dubai. Nothing special to mention, but I feel like posting this picture below which I took when I had soms Krispy Kreme doughnuts. (Yes 3anooda, this is a show off :p )

Happy Eid + Happy Anniversary

Happy Eid: I truly wish all of you a very pleasant and joyful Eid, to you, your families and your beloved ones. Have a blast :)

Happy Anniversary: Yes! Exactly today, I completed 1 year working in Weatherford International. What a coincidence that I'm going to celebrate two things in one day? :p

Just a side note: Lately, I was confused on which DSLR camera should I get and I was all hesitant between the Nikon D90 and the Canon EOS 450D. Eventually, I ended up with Canon and only Canon; 'cause I've been using canon in the past 8 years. I'll be posting couple of my shots some time later.

Happy Eid to all of you once again, have fun guys. ;)
