LASIK – Know the risks — 2 Comments

  1. This post is so interesting. I’ve always wondered about Lasik. My father who is a doctor himself has always been against it. He’s of the opinion that it is unwise to take the risks of undergoing a surgery unnecessarily. I do agree with him, but then again not having to deal with losing your spectacles or those very glamorous nose dents left by wearing one for a long time. And don’t even get me started on contact lenses. Yesterday I lost one lens inside my eye and did not find it until the next morning.
    But after reading your post I’ll have to rethink about Lasik. I had no idea that Lasik is not the end solution that we all think it is. Thank you for clearing that misconception and some others.
    It was a good read, keep up the good work! 🙂

    • Hi Shizza, thanks for the nice comment! HAHA “very glamorous nose dents”–I totally agree with you! If only there were a magical cure for wearing glasses… I’m not surprised about your dad. I think most doctors and nurses, too, are pretty risk averse. We see so much of what can go wrong, after all. Thanks again for reading and commenting, and better luck with those rogue contact lenses ;). Cheers, FN
