I have two friends that have had Lasik done with fabulous results. My most recent friend now has 20/15 vision! What I wouldn’t give for that as I sit here squinting at my computer screen because I can’t remember where I left my glasses. And, to be honest, am too lazy to get up and get them right now since if I get close and squint I can see the screen.
I’ve asked my doctor about it, but the standard response is that my eyesight isn’t bad enough to warrant it. But I don’t want to deal with the glasses and the frown lines forming because I’m constantly squinting trying to see! The frown lines ultimately being the driving vanity here.
So, what to do, what to do… I really want to do it, but keep waiting for my eyesight to get “bad enough” to warrant the surgery. It IS surgery after all.
I clicked that link up there for a second opinion and it came back that I am an excellent candidate. Hmm, they didn’t even ask me what my current vision is, so I’m thinking that EVERYONE is an excellent candidate and they are just trying to get customers. I’m not gaining much confidence in their conclusion – but that doesn’t mean I’m not still curious about Lasik.
What do you think about Lasik? Wonderful or horrible?
