I have a love/hate relationship with my eyes. I love that I have two of them and that I am not legally blind. However, I hate that I have to wear glasses/contacts and that although my insurance covers glasses; I typically have to pay at least $70 for lighter lenses. A high index lens would cost me about $180 – $200 extra. I am near-sighted (myopia, for the medical fashionistas) with -10.00 diopter. In essence, my glasses are coke bottles.
These are the frames I picked out today:
Interestingly, the eye doctor asked if I ever considered LASIK surgery. Please, I’ve been wanting that surgery since the early 90s! She thinks I may be a good candidate for it.
However, my Rx is crazy high so most likely, I can’t get 20/20 uncorrected vision post-op and it would be a trickier lazer. But even if I have a lower Rx… that means that I can get glasses w/o paying extra money for thinner lenses.
So now I’m sitting on the strongly considering part of the LASIK fence. Of course, I’m going to several places and reading the FDA’s LASIK page while proceeding with caution.
So any fashionistas considering LASIK or have previously had LASIK?
