I was told my astigmatism was so bad before I couldn't get it. it may have changed I don't know....I really don't care anymore though. I wanted it when I was younger, 47 now...Just curious, why can't you get LASIK? I heard they can even do it if you have astigmatism now.
Ive heard stories of where people cant drive at night anymore. lights just blind them. Its like a spectrum of colors blasting your eyes....that scares me. That one reason I don't even care to get it anymore. soft contacts are fine for me...I have worn glasses and contacts since i was in the 3rd grade, so for over 35 yrs now.. For a long time, I couldn’t wear contacts because i have an astigmatism, and the only available option were hard plastic lenses, which hurt like hell to wear.. i hated, hated my glasses, so when LASIK became a thing circa 20 yrs ago, i thought seriously about getting it.. but over the years, though most people i know who’ve had it say it’s the best money theyve ever spent- I’ve also met a few who had their eyes seriously messed up.. I’ve even read about people who committed suicide b/c LASIK made their lives a painful miserable hell (Google it).. So now that i’m able to wear contacts, I’m going to stick with them b/c while the odds are that LASIK will be a success, i dont want to be part of the minority of people where it goes wrong.. Just a personal choice, your mileage may vary.
It's really cheap now compared to what it used to be so you may want to look into it if you want to have normal eyes.I was told my astigmatism was so bad before I couldn't get it. it may have changed I don't know....I really don't care anymore though. I wanted it when I was younger, 47 now...
I would be terrified to have that surgery.Wins a Heisman and a nat’l title in college ball with bad eyes, but can’t avoid umpteen picks in the NFL without Lasik. Something doesn’t add up
I had Lasik 16 years ago and my vision improved mightily, but I’m not trying to play QB in the NFL, though.
