I come from a family with very poor eyesight. But, I have the poorest eyesight of them all :-P. When I was in highschool, my parents offered to pay for lasik for me, but after discussing it with a specialist we decided to wait until after I turn 22. Now that I am closer to that age, my mom has asked me to think about getting it done as she would like to put aside the money for it. I would love too! But, I have also been told not to set my expectations too high as my eyesight is terrible.
Eyesight: -8.5 and -9, but I have to get new contacts because these are not strong enough. This is the prescription I have had since I was 17.
Has anyone else had an experience with this procedure, possibly with eyesight such as mine? How well did it work for you? Was it worth it? Any issues after? It has worked very well for my parents, but they were -2ish and -6ish, if I remember correctly. So, mine are a bit worse! It will be a couple more months, but I am having an eye exam soon so that they can verify that I am a candidate for this surgery (and to get new contacts!).
