    Can't wait, I feel much blinder than when I last went two years ago. Need glasses to read.

    When I was 47, I was reading the stock page in the paper (tiny print)one day and the next day it was blurry. The eye doctor gave me the choice of glasses for reading or just the magnifiers. I chose magnifiers and I've upped the number over & over again. I still get the eyes checked because diabetics are suppose to.

    I'm a 3.00 magnifier now.

    We get one free pair each year. I have two pair so I have one pair upgraded this year and the other the next and so on.

    At my last appt I asked them to see if I would be a candidate for Lasik--I'm not.

    I am. I am seriously thinking about it. There is a Dr in Syracuse who does the more advanced version. NASA approved?? I don't know. He's a good eye doctor. I wouldn't have wanted to grow up with his last name.:blushing2:

    I can read any size print up close. I always get chosen to read stuff for my vain friends at the saloon who won't admit they need specks. But if the big E is 10 feet away I can hardly pick it out without my specks. While employeed at UPS I wore contacts for about 25 years. I remember my eye doctor telling me after he found out I had been drafted in 1968-----"You don't have to worry about being drafted because even in WWII they weren't taking guys with your vision-"-----------------I eventually sent him a letter from Vietnam.

    My son-in-law had lasik about 2 months ago. He has the eyesight of an eagle now.

    Boy, the description of what they did almost made me ill !!

    Husband had lasik and swears by it. Don't cheap out looking for a 2 for 1 special the way Doug did for Carrie. Go to someone who's done a lot of them successfully.

    That's this guy. He is a well respected doctor, whose father started the practice. He's very good. I don't know the details, as I hate gore and didn't want to hear, but he doesn't do what the strip mall lasik guys go. Like I said, he said something about NASA approved. I am guessing the other 'styles' aren't. A girlfriend's ex-husband has it done strip mall style. One of his eyes has issues still. I didn't know they actually cut. Enough! cant take the gore!!!

    How does a person gain experience when everyone who goes to this person wants someone with experience?
