Eye Surgery

Almost every morning I sit down to the computer and think "Gee, I can't see well today." Sometimes I even comment to my coworker about it before I realize that I don't have my glasses on yet. Duh. I don't know if I'll ever get used to them. At night it feels like they are still on my face when they aren't. I don't know if that is normal but it's aggravating.

My mom had eye surgery a few years ago and now only needs glasses to read small print. She wore contacts almost her entire adult life and was happy to give them up. I read an article in US News & World Report about laser eye surgery and the differences. In it, they quote Glenn Hagele, founder and Executive Director of the Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance (http:/www.USAEyes.org). From there I went to the USA Eyes site and found a section called 50 Tough Questions For Your Lasik Doctor that is helpful in knowing what to ask beforehand. I don't know if I'll ever get brave enough to even look seriously into something such as eye surgery but I will be bookmarking this site.
