Since elementary school (the mid 90s) I’d worn some form of corrective lenses and for as long as I can remember I’ve disliked them. For a good while I had huge, dorky glasses and as I got older I BEGGED my parents to let me try contacts and they didn’t put up too much of a fight.
For several years I wore soft contact lenses during which time I tried every contact lens brand under the sun and they were all. very. uncomfortable.
The biggest complaint I had was dry eyes, regardless of the brand. I finally settled on Acuvue Oasys contact lenses, but even those came with their limitations: I could not shower, swim, or nap with contact lenses in.
Over the last few years Anthony and I have become a bit more comfortable with our finances so similar to how I BEGGED my parents for contacts, I BEGGED Anthony for this surgery. Also similar to my parents, he didn’t put up much of a fight (because he loves me). I knew that LASIK was not covered under our insurance and that it would come with quite a price tag as well as other side effects, so I started to do my research.
