I’ve had contact lenses since I was 12 years old, and over the last few years they had really started to bother my eyes. Probably due to all the time I spend staring at a monitor, but of course I’ve been doing that for years as well.
Anyway, this winter I decided to pull the trigger and trust modern science to fix my eyes. After two months of wearing glasses in public for the first time in my life (it’s not so bad), I just had lasik surgery on Thursday. It was true that it was a painless procedure, but it was rather uncomfortable to have people doing strange things to your eyes, and it felt like something out of Clockwork Orange.
However, the results are phenomenal as my vision is now as good as it was with my gas-permeable contacts. I’d highly recommend it to anyone who wants a long term vision fix.
