Do you wear glasses?

Postby SoGone » 27 Feb 2011, 01:31

I've needed them since I was a little kid, but only last year did I start wearing them regularly.

Wow; I'm surprised, because you're so young for that...were your eyes that bad, or do you have different insurance rules over there? I know here you have to wait for cataracts (if that was it) to completely ripen before they'll do surgery...and if one eye's really bad but the other's not (though getting there), they won't do both eyes at the same time!


Stupid bureaucrats.

The pic I posted showed me wearing my prescription sunglasses.


So there.

but we couldn't see you clearly enough!!!!! :( prescription or not from what I can remember you looked good!!!...

omg you're calling sun young Andy???!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: Maybe you need your eyesight re-testing, he has to be at least 40 something!!!!... :lol: :wink:

As far as I know laser eye surgery is now quite a standard choice for people that want/can afford it but as I don't know too much about it i'll leave that to sunshine to explain...

...I was under the impression that 40's-early 50's is young for eye surgery...but what do I know.

you can do it as soon as you stop growing, as i did... i did not have much but i did not like having to wear glasses.
it's quite simple... they put some drops... the cut the cornea and lift it and the burn it with the laser (you smell it), the put it down, some more drops... and then they do the other one!

!@#$%, that's not bad at all (relatively)! You weren't lying!


I'm fairly sure it's a lot more than that here. Either they use different techniques or they're simply royally screwing us. Both are possible.
