I’ve had to wear glasses or corrective lenses since I was in the third grade. At first, I thought they were cool. I had the lenses that tinted when exposed to sunlight. The novelty wore off after about a year or two and the quest for contact lenses began. I didn’t get contacts until I was in the eighth grade and I was happy to get them. The glasses just got in the way when playing baseball and basketball.
Unfortunately, I still wear contact lenses and on occasion I wear my glasses (only in my house). I’ve been looking into laser eye surgery for quite some time and I have to admit I’m bit freaked out by the process, but the clutter that my lenses add to my bathroom drawer is a bit more than I’d like. My drawer includes: my year supply of lenses (I wear disposables), my large container of saline solution, my glasses, and my contact case. So almost half of my tiny drawer is taken up with products to help me see.
The ability to see when I wake up is definitely the highest priority, but also I’m tired of keeping my drawer stocked with lenses and solutions. So, should I be freaked out by laser eye surgery or should I go ahead with the procedure? I checked to see if I was a good Lasik candidate and it turns out that it doesn’t look like a problem. Now if I could only figure out how to pay for it?
