    Default LASIK eye surgery

    I got my LASIK eye surgery done last week, and taking things a bit easier until they settle in.

    Driving at night was different. I had a wider field of vision than I'm used to.
    I my have to change my picture to one without glasses.
    During the day, I'm still using sunglasses.

    I'm looking forward to skiing and swimming with my new retooled eyes.
    So far, just looking around at everything is kind of fun.

    Terry,

    Do you know if there is any kind of lasik that repairs old eye reading problems. My vision is near perfect, all but the reading thing. I don't like the idea of contacts, (if they even make them for that) so I run around with a pair of readers in my pocket.

    Oh, and did it hurt???

    Well, I'm old too, so I have the readers too.

    Some people go in for "mono" vision.
    One eye is done for reading, the other for distance.

    That might have been a good idea.

    So they do have something for reading. That might be the ticket. I have been carrying these readers around for 15 years.

    problem with the reading thing--your eyes just keep getting older--you will either need glasses again in a few years, or to have the surgery redone.

    I should have known. I'm not big on surgery, as most of are not. I might get up enough nerve to have it done once, but twice or thrice. I think not!

    Anyone know where I can find some good readers for under $10.00?

    Did you use any special lasik procedures to get your results? Such as Wavefront or Intralase?

    Lasik is soooo yesterday. Go for implantable contacts!

    Ok, I'm being a bit facetious. Consider the risks and use the appropriate technology. You've only got two eyes and probably depend on 'em pretty much. Be real careful with any cutting, burning, or chopping since it will change the eye forever.

    I had implants installed about a year ago. No regrets even though vision at 12 inches is shot. It's 20/20 at anything over 2 feet.

    I keep seeing the ads for laser eye surgery, but a lifetime of near-sighted astigmatism has me so used to glasses that I'll just chug along with them, and be grateful for having UV-blocking plastic armor between my peepers and a cruel world.
