Default Bad eyes no more!

Okay, not yet, but soon. I'm going to have LASIK in a couple of weeks. I just went in for my preliminary exam today and they said everything looks good. My eyes are a great candidate for the surgery.

Any of you guys had this done? I'm getting pretty excited. I've worn glasses since the second grade (that'* 16 years for anyone who'* counting). I'm more than ready to get rid of them for at least 20 years.

all the people I know that have had it done said they wish they would have done it sooner. All of them love it.

Glorkar, what'* it costing you? I've considered it several times. It would be nice not to have to wear contact lenses every day. But the price has been too high for me for too long for LASIK.

I'd be too scared to have stuff done to my eyes.

I've been considering it for about 3-5 years. Each year I wait..the process gets better and I get more sick of my lenses.

My plan is to consider an medical spending account at work to save up and use to do it next year.

If you wait too long you will be too old Just do it and be done with it.
