LASIK Laser Eye Surgery Review by Collette Todd
Aug 1, 2004
I began wearing glasses when I was nine. I needed them permanently at 11 and they were the bane of my life at school. Those huge plastic NHS Deirdre Barlow ones that everyone made fun of. Not surprisingly, I started wearing contact lenses as soon as my optician let me when I was 14. By profession, I am a singer, which means I could never wear glasses on stage.
I constantly had to worry about remembering lenses etc and cope with getting the ton of make up I slap on every night, caught behind a lens in the middle of a song and ending up with tears and black lines running down my face. The bright lights also have a tendency to make lenses dry up and fall out mid scene.
The only answer was the laser eye treatment. Since having the operation my life is simpler. As I love to go out for a few drinks of an evening, I don't have to worry about waking up in the morning and trying to remember what I did with my lenses. Are they there? Are they in the right pot?
Is it in the right solution? I can see my alarm clock without having to hold it to my nose. And I don't have to fumble around for glasses when I get up, knocking over water, books, etc in the process. I believe you cannot go through life thinking 'what if?' If you really want something, you have to take chances and I believe this laser eye surgery treatment is worth taking the chance for."
