I’ll stick to the contacts and the glasses that make me handsome.

They both said it transformed their lives and when the eye patch came off couldn't believe how ugly their partners really were.

One of my late family members had it done in the 1990s. It worked brilliantly for the first eye but not so well for the second. A bit hit or miss back then maybe.

Got it done just under 2 years ago...both eyes same time..lasik procedure took about 10 seconds per eye and noticed the difference after about 15 mins..had thumping headache and watery eyes on spin home but once i went to bed and slept for an hour or two i was perfect...didn't suffer much haloing at street lights after the next day....mine was 2900 but with health insurance discount included and got about 700 tax back so about 2200 all in...still perfect,last check my eyesight was better than 20/20 (which is only a standard,20/15 is actually better)
all in all a great decision,just raging i didn't do it 10 years ago
