I remember being a teen in my early high school years and wanting to get glasses.
I went to the eye doc and tried to fail the test so that they would tell my mom I could go and pick out my frames.
Apparently, he saw it often and he saw right through me.
But by the time I was graduating and heading off to college I was not only wearing glasses, I depended on them. I could not see in class. I could not see to drive, particularly at night. And if I didn’t have them on and you were not right in front of me, I could not even see your face.
At night, once I climbed in bed, I would put on my “night glasses” to fall asleep watching TV. I ultimately got what I wanted and more I suppose. I started sleeping in my contacts because I hated not being able to see when I woke up in the morning.
On my annual visit to the eye doctor, he brought up Lasik surgery. It had gotten THAT BAD.
I told him I was a little scared of that, because you know, “what if?”
The doctors response blew my mind…
Here is what he said:
Think about those people in Hurricane Katrina. All of their belongings, including the glasses were literally a wash. In your case, someone who can’t see without their glasses or contacts, and you are fighting to stay afloat, it could be a matter of life or death. Survival or not.”
It all made it perfectly clear. The investment that I made to improve my vision with Lasik has been one of the greatest I have ever made. It truly could be the difference between living through a crisis or not.
If someone broke in my home in the middle of the night I would not have been able to identify them. With Lasik I can.
If a hurricane washed away my belongings, I very well could have been lost for lack of being able to see to navigate. With Lasik, lack of vision wont be the reason I didn’t make it.
If my glasses broke while I was driving, I would be stuck. With Lasik, I can see while driving in the day, and the night!
