What is wrong with having your eyelids taped to the back of your head so they can lean a high powered laser against your eyeballs and fire it repeatedly directly into your brain. That and the newness of the whole process and lack of long term data sounds like a blast to me
[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.
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.
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.
