To See Or Not To See
I have really bad vision. Really. Really. Bad.
In fact, if I’m not wearing my contacts I probably wouldn’t even recognize my family in a crowd of people.
For years, people have told me, even raved, about Lasik. Though there were a couple of horror stories, everyone else said they didn’t know why they waited so long to do it. They were amazed at how they could wake up in the morning and just be able to see clearly. They didn’t have to fuss with contacts and solutions and cleaning and glasses. A speck of dust no longer made them feel like someone just stabbed them in the eye.
There were times when I considered doing it but always ended up chickening out. You see, I’m a little squeamish about things like this. It took me forever to even get the nerve to try out contacts. However, on my last flight, a good friend of mine was telling me that she just got Lasik done and it was perfectly fine. The actual procedure took less than 10 minutes. And the best part is that you are required to go home and sleep for 4 hours! Required! DH can’t argue with doctor’s orders! LOL!
So this time I’m going to do it. I’m calling first thing in the morning to see if I’m a candidate. I have to admit that I am a little excited at the thought of never having to wear contacts again!
Do you have any experiences with Lasik? Would you be able to go through it?
