Apparently getting laser surgery, over the course of my life, would be cheaper than what I currently spend on glasses, lenses, eye drops, solution, etc. Assuming, of course, that my eyes don’t crap out again on me further down the track.
An acquaintance recently encouraged me to do it. $6000 wasn’t a lot of money, she said.
I wanted to ask: “Are you sure you’ve been working in journalism for the past 10 years?”
I could afford Lasik right now and have money left over – but I don’t think I’ll ever do it. I’d sooner pay for my wisdom teeth to be taken out, which is more urgent.
I’m not particularly active or outdoorsy, and I even kind of like waking up to a soft focus world in the morning.
My med school friend, on the other hand (next year is her last year, when she’ll start getting paid – $26,000, just under minimum wage), reckons it’s the first thing she will do as soon as she can afford it.
