My eyes are exhausted. In the last week I’ve read more than 700 pages and I’m excited about adding on another 1300. I’m so happy these bifocals of mine are updated or my eyes would be very upset with me. I went through far too much to get these glasses, I’d hate to have them suddenly crap out on me.
This got me thinking about what it would be like if I didn’t have glasses. Of course I wouldn’t want to have issues seeing. My mom, stepdad and aunt have all gotten Lasik surgery to correct their vision. All three of them see really happy with their decision.
I’m occasionally asked by family and friends if I’d consider getting the procedure. Honestly, right now, I don’t think I would. My glasses give me character. My I feel naked without them! Sometimes I forget that they’re on, and I try to poke my eyes just to make sure they’re still there. Yeah…because there isn’t an easier and safer way to do that…
So just in case I decide to ever go ahead with the procedure…you know, after I’ve grown tired of cleaning these things…I did a bit of research. I found this video that really sums up the before, during and after of iLASIK. More information can be found at iLASIK. My eyes seem to be getting worse every year. Ahh the joys of aging! But I’m not sure if I’m quite ready to part with my specs. It’s definitely something I’ll keep on the back burner, but for right now, I think I’ll stick with my glasses.
I’m curious – have any of you had the procedure done? If you have, are you happy with your results? Would you recommend it to a friend? If you haven’t, are you curious about it? Why or why not?
