... is now my colleague's vision after undergoing LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) eye surgery. He opted for this instead of LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) because of its advantages like less (or no) eye dryness and less post-operative pain. It cost him around 1.7M KRW or approximately 1,500 USD.
I asked him about it cos, now, I can actually relate to it... kkk Having such a poor vision myself. But it's not THAT terrible (or that's what I'm just telling myself:) I can still go through my routine without glasses (though with difficulty cos I keep on squinting every now and then.)
I got my first prescription two years ago but being the stubborn me, I refused to wear the glasses cos I found them bothersome. So, I just put them on when I feel like using them. (pasaway!) And using contact lenses is out of the question. (I just can't... though I find choosing the ones with nice colors so tempting.kk) And So! last month, when I had an eye check up again, I was told that my vision got even worse especially in my right eye. tsk tsk tsk My lenses had to be changed and I was advised to use my glasses ALL of the TIME. NOOOoooooooo. :(
Wouldn't it be nice if, through LASEK or LASIK, I don't have to wear glasses anymore? But the thing is (1) We definitely have NO budget for that! and (2) I'm a scaredy cat! What if something went wrong? Though I've heard how safe it is (two of my co-workers had it... and some relatives of a Korean teacher, too... and they are all okay:) I still can't bear the thought of someone or something "poking" into my eyes.lol
Would you have it? I think I'd stick to my glasses :)
