[ignoring hyperbole above] Well, the laser doesn't go past the cornea (the very front of the eye), and couldn't go into your brain. [/ignoring hyperbole above]

The 10 year data has been released (Lasik got FDA approval in early '96), and so far things seem to be staying stable. The procedure was approved in the early 90's in Canada, so they're past the 15-year mark. From what I can see in my practice as an eye doctor, eyes and vision are staying pretty stable, aside from the inevitable 'my arms are too short' thing that happens to all of us in our 40's, with or without surgery.

I'd look far too friendly in glasses. I'll use contacts when I finally get an eye test and get told what I already know; my eyes are stuffed.

"Arms are too short thing?"

Please to explain that one a bit, I'm 38 so I've got impending curiosity

Over the past 20+ years, I've

*puts on her sunglasses*

come to see them as another part of jewelry.

YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Bad jokes aside, I really don't feel complete without my glasses, it's just bad that I need longer to choose a new pair of glasses than I need for buying new pants.

Glasses are fun, theres a certain hotness about a women in glasses.
I wore glasses throughout my younger years moving onto contacts when I was in my 20's, I had corrective eye surgery when I was 5yrs old too. I was thinking of buying a new set with plain glass just because I miss wearing them.

I love my glasses, I just wish they didn't rest on the bridge of my nose and cause breathing problems or make wearing hats uncomfortable, maybe I should try contacts after all.

I just really really hate touching my eyeball.

It's just really annoying for me when my glasses slide down my nose a little bit. That, and a curious 2 year old and glasses don't mix. I just dream of the day when I can wake up in the morning and see perfectly without having to put anything on or in my eyes.

For those of you curious, my contact prescription is -5.75, which means I can't read a book without it being a couple inches in front of my nose without some sort of corrective lenses.

I went to get glasses, and told me friend (who is a girl) to pick them out. She found me hot pink girl "youth" glasses, and then complained that not only do they fit me perfectly, but I looked good in them /shrug

FYI: I didn't get those, I got dark rimmed glasses that match my hair and eyes well.
