How fit are your eyes?

I was given a coupon for half off on eye checkup.
Turns out I was nearsighted by enough to make glasses a huge difference.

Was never really an issue, but it was a flaw that I now have huge gains in.

      Based mate. Been wearing them since 4th grade here, 31 now. Also getting lasik at the end of May. I also can't wait. Glasses have been extra annoying lately, I need a new pair and literally said frick it I would rather have my eye balls reshaped than shop for new frames and get used to them. Very near sighted here, I can't even use my phone unless it's 6 inches from my face.

        Nearsighted too plus some astigmatism, anything past a foot starts getting blurry. Also same on glasses being annoying. I mean they've always been a hassle, but frick they've pissed me off lately. I can finally afford lasik, so I bit the bullet.
        It's going to be amazing to not need them anymore, and even though it costs over $4,000 it's going to be cheaper than spending $400+ each on new glasses and sunglasses every few years for the rest of my life.

          Ya I was quoted $4k. I don't even care if it's more expensive than the straight up glasses comparison over the course of 10+ years. Not having to deal with things on my face is worth the price.

            Good point kek. I don't know that I would care either if glasses were cheaper long term. Being free of them would still be worth the cost.

        I don't know that the place I am going to does PRK. I'm not too worried about blows to the head, which is a good reason to get PRK over lasik if that is a concern.
        For me its going to be about $4,300 total, but I think it depends a lot on how fricked your eyes are. I'm still deciding if I'm going to pay it off in installments (zero interest) over two years or all at once, I can do either.
        If they don't have penalties for paying it off faster than the two years, I'll probably just do the installments and pay it off in 4-6 months, just to spread it out a little bit. Two years is too long.

            I have it a bit in one eye too and I'm still a good candidate. If you're interested, go for a consultation. They'll do the tests and tell you if it'll work for you or not.

            I can't remember my exact prescription, but the astigmatism is not too bad. And yeah, like

            said, consultations are usually no cost (really they just fold the cost into the lasik procedure) or pretty cheap. Even with my astigmatism, based on everything else they tested about eye shape, etc., I was in the lowest risk category.

    I'm the first in my family to have glasses because of environmental factors of growing up inside on the computer.
    I'll definitely get eye surgery when my eyes are finished changing. I hate wearing glasses and won't wear contacts

    I met a top eye doctor in my area and asked him about lasik. He said he didn’t want to tell me what to do but to take note of the fact he still wears glasses himself. That was enough for me not to get it lol

      There are definitely risks, some of them quite severe, but the likelihood is pretty low, especially if you are a good candidate. One of the worst ones is the corneal flap can get lifted out of place and torn off, even years later, by shear forces. Usually it just gets dislocated and has to be moved back into position—also rare—but tearing can and has happened. Basically the cornea never is as structurally strong as it was before, in certain directions less than 3% of original and in others about 30%. As with any elective procedure, people should be aware of all the risks and make informed decisions. I’m aware of the risks, and I’m still going to get it done.

    I'm 20/20 vision. A living example of how wanking to a laptop screen for 20 years won't always knacker your eyes provided you don't start till you're 18
