I’ve just recently been referred for an in-clinic eye laser treatment by one of the best if not the best clinic that offers the eye lasik process locally. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was about ten years old. I’m frightfully near-sighted and have spent thousands of pesos having glasses replaced or updated every three to four years. I tried contacts but I find them absolutely bothersome and I even developed eye allergies. I’ve already been given a screening/work-up and have been deemed eligible short of the retina test. So right now, the clinic is simply waiting for my decision for the retina screening.
I’m nervyous…but I want to…but you know…I’m nervyous…however I do believe I will be pushing through with it after all this thought twiddling. It just wasn’t such a good idea to watch mom’s eye lasik surgery on a high definition screen right outside the operating room with her cornea scaled as big as my entire torso, but now I do envy her. After enduring one very tearful night following the surgery she woke up the very next morning to the clearest view right outside her window. I do miss wearing stylish shades and being able to enjoy the beach or the great outdoors in general without the hassle. That’s not to mention the added ease to make-up artistry on myself should I have this procedure done.
I don’t have the most flattering of eyes, they’re sleepy, small, uneven, and they flaunt the saddest set of dark circles you’ve ever seen. People who’ve seen me without my glasses in person usually prefer I put them back on. It’s super unlike in the movies or TV (She’s All That, Ugly Betty, Princess Diaries) where the removal of lenses changes everyone’s view of the girl into an extremely positive one, in my case their reactions pop the balloon “Mas bagay sayo mag glasses” and I get so, so frustrated when people say that. Glasses flatter me, but I don’t want them. If I do push through with this procedure I still plan to have a dummy pair of spectacles on hand in case I feel uneasy. I really envy girls with beautiful exotic eyes with long lashes and a large lid area, Indian and Middle-Eastern Women especially shine in this category.
I just really don’t like my eyes, because of my grade when I remove my glasses, the irises even have a problem aligning evenly so I look lazy-eyed. I need some cheerleaders, what do you think about the offer? Have any of you been through the eye lasik procedure or are at least considering having it done someday? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear from my readers on this subject.
