I’ve been wearing contact lenses for almost four months now. Mainly they’ve made me realize how much my glasses suck. But the contacts are far from perfect. They tend to get uncomfortable after a while — I get a bit of a headache. They’re blurry unless they’re sitting in exactly the right part of my eye. Every time I blink, they move a little.
So I’ve decided to get Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (better known as LASIK) or some other form of refractive surgery. I’ve been reading up on the risks and benefits and cost and I think it’s worth it. My dad had it about ten years ago and recommends it highly. So I’m boning up on the various lasers and hunting for good eye surgeons now.
