Since I began wearing glasses as a teenager, I wished for a better situation. Contact lenses were too much hassle and glasses just got scratched, broken, and lost. Finally, when I knew I would be deploying for Iraq, I decided to go through with LASIK and not be bothered with glasses in a combat zone. I knew the improvement would be great, but WOW! Not a day goes by that I am not aware of how incredible my vision has become. I joke with people that if it were any better, I would have to wear a cape! I would gladly refer any of my patients considering LASIK.
