Almost exactly a year ago I got LASIK. It cost me $2,600 and was one of the best decisions of my life.
My eyes were terrible, -7.0 and -8.0. I couldn’t function without glasses or contact.
But I didn’t want to look like a nerd going out so I’d put my contacts in then. But I’d always get drunk and sleep with them in which was awful.
LASIK is such a no-brainer. Anyone who needs glasses / contacts in every day life should do this ASAP.
In 50 years every kid out of the womb will get LASIK on the spot since it’ll be cheap and obvious.
I have no scientific evidence to back that up, and in fact I’d guess that’s a terrible idea since the eyes probably aren’t developed yet.
Still, get LASIK.
