Much like my wish for curly hair, I wanted to wear glasses when I was younger. I would wear cheap glasses from the drugstore just for fun. As I got older and picked up my first pair of reading glasses for working on the computer, I was excited. Finally! I have a legitimate reason to wear glasses! That excitement wore off real quick when day in and day out of wearing the glasses became uncomfortable.
Now that I’m even older and noticing my eyesight deteriorating a bit, I’ve started looking into other options like laser eye treatment and weighing the pros and cons of my options. I’m a little tired of squinting my eyes all the time but don’t want to wear glasses all day or have to put something in my eye. Just the thought of contacts make me squirm!
In looking into laser eye treatments, LASIK is one of the most popular types of treatment and the option I’m considering. The great thing about this is improvement is immediate with the ability to drive or return to work within 48 hours. The results can be precise and one of the surveys I read says patients saw an improvement of 90% and up after the procedure. I like those odds!
