>>26133286 My dad had one...10-12 years ago, so when it was in its early stage, his sight is starting to degrade again, but at least hewas reimbursed by his healthcare, and even it was not that expensive.
>>26133404 Some people have to get their LASIK readjusted every ten years or so. As for me, I'm legally blind without my glasses and ca't see past my fingers. I'm myopic, have astigmatism, am. Sensotive to light, have horrible depth perception, and to top it all off have a slightly lazy eye. Meanwhile my parents didn't have to wear glasses until they were well into adulthood. Fuck me.
When I put my glasses on I'm practically a normie, I literally could look people in the eye and such. Without my glasses I'm fucking blind af and I can't do anything. I'm better off than some of you though.
When I asked my parents for help with getting LASIK they told me to fucking pay for it myself in the future.
>>26133516 Well that sucks. At least I know it's a family thing. Everyone has glasses in my family,but I'm the only one with my dad with such a bad eyesight. Sisters and mother are either age or reading and computer screens.
>>26132331 my eyesight is almostblind/10 wearing glasses is real fuckin nightmare >always get dirty of dust, rain, snow w/e >glasses do not cover whole eye-vision (aka field-of-view) so i need to turn my head like retard up/down/right/left >cant use headphones over ear because for longer period of time because ears start to hurt >start sweating, sweat gets on glasses >start sweating, the frame that holds on ears gets wet and slippery >expensive as fuck >breaks easily >left-side glass needs to be tighten up to frame constantly or else it fells out and i will have hard time finding a milimeter-sized screw and see-through glass on fucking ground (happened few times)
Pretty mediocre, senpai 1.5 in right and 1.25 in left >can't even try to put on contacts without flinching >running/exercising is bothersome with glasses >they get dirty easily >less atractive with glasses >can't wear headphones without my ears hurting after 30 minutes
>>26134407 Yeah, but mine are thinned down, and that basically adds 300 euros to the price, otherwise the glass is wayyyy too thick, becase of my shitty eyesight. And astigmatism as well, so different glasses, more expensive.
Really looking forward to getting the surgery done. I'll be a different man.
My eyesight is one of the few things I feel extremely fortunate about. 20/15 vision with perfect color perception. I'm an oil painter and an archer so I don't know what the fuck I would do if I had shitty vision like you poor fucks.
My eyes are still getting worse with 1 dpt a year or so. I don't dare to wear glasses outside anymore, because I look ridiculous with them. And a bit of a trauma because I always have been bullied for them.
>>26132331 Legally blind without glasses Not allowed to drive Contacts are not strong enough Lasik place said sorry, can't help Glasses look like double coke bottle bottoms Had my glasses tinted red, since all you can see are my pupils and some of the iris, without the tint I look like a monster Can read with out glasses, under a strong light, about 1 inch from my face at 48 point type School made me learn Braille as a kid, so I can still read in bed at night Have to carry a cane, in case I loose my glasses, I always have two pair with me, always Work for the government, as a disabled hire, get lots of benefits and free stuff for being blind, no taxes either Even with glasses everything is still pretty fuzzy, like a fogged window I use a big monitor and a text reader, high contrast and a magnifier on my glasses As you might guess, I am a 27 year old virgin, I don't even bother anymore Women consider disabled men to be completely invisible, unless they are rich, and I am not Not too bad really, I love music, have a great service dog
FUCKING CANADIAN OPTOMETRISTS NEVER GIVE ME MY DETAILED EYE MEASUREMENTS NO MATTER HOW MUCH I ASK, JUST SO I CAN'T BUY GLASSES ONLINE FOR A TENTH OF THEIR NIGGER PRICES. THEY ALWAYS MANAGE TO WORD IT OUT REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
When you get to the place there are some prep tests they do. They do some of these tests weeks ago in the pre-screening, but they did them again to double check. They advise you on post op care as well. The actual procedure is like this:
>Lie down >They put numbing drops in your eyes >Put some thing on your eye that holds it open. This is actually the most uncomfortable part. Doesn't hurt, just uncomfortable >Doc cuts tiny flap in your eye, you can't feel it at all because of the numbing medicine >Stare at a little red light while the laser starts burning away. Lasts about 10 seconds. Can actually smell the burning. Again, can't feel anything >Doc puts flap back >Repeat for other eye >Doc says congrats
Takes about 10-15 minutes. Vision is slightly better immediately after but its still blurry. ~2 hours later there was some irritation for me and some foreign object sensation (feels like something is in your eye), but thats normal. Went to bed like they said and woke up next morning with great vision. Went to the doctor for my followup, took the test, told me 20/20. Had to take 2 eye drops 4 times a day for a week following surgery to prevent infection and inflammation.
