No end in sight for my glasses!


A little while back I was wanting to save up my money and go to get laser eye surgery done...I was asking friends who had had it done and they raved about it, "Its so simple!" "only takes 45 seconds per eye!" "you have to get it done!" So I was all excited about the possibility of not having to squint at hot guys, whom I thought were good looking but in the end would be someone only a mother could love...haha...anyways....back to the story, so I thought it out...priced it out and after many a heart attack thinking about how much it would cost, an angel fell from the sky and it was called...."How its made" or "How its done..." something along those lines....a television show from heaven. That day it happened to be....How Laser Eye Surgery is Performed! I was so excited! I could finally see the process and be in awe of how simple and wonderful it was! So I watched....and I watched....and I covered my eyes.....and I squirmed.....and almost barfed....and I decided I never wanted laser eye surgery again!!.....I mean, why do you need to cut open the cornia or whatever to perform the surgery?! Why not just shine the big laser into my eye and well get it over with! Anyways....needless to say within 10 min I had changed my mind completely and Im not going to have it done unless they bring in the booth where you pay your 2 bucks and be done with it...no cutting....no nothing! Maybe they can throw in a gift certificate to have before and after pics done in the booth next to me!
Cheers!

The sketched captions are a hoot! Our son and his girlfriend had the surgery. They did okay. There is just some blood shot eyes for a week or so. I am sure each case is based on the individual.

I've heard mixed reviews on it. I can't stand watching anything surgical that relates to the eyes. Totally grosses me out. Cute cartoons!
