Should she..or should she not?

I have a friend that wants to have Lasik surgery..and earlier today we were discussing pros and cons...shoulds and should nots. She was saying that she has done a lot of research and the the percentage of Lasik Complications is actually very low. I reminded her while that is true... if a million people have lasik every year..that "small percentage" is pretty high!

I gues I am just sensitive about eyes..I only have one good eye..I am blind in my left eye. The thought of losing my vision in my other eye freaks me out! Today I was driving and something blew into my eye and while I was rubbing it and trying to get it out I honestly couldn't see and it scared the crap out of me. Then I started thinking about what I would do if I never saw my kids faces again. :(

So..messing with eyes is just very scary to me--BUT I can understand the attraction of Lasik..and I can totally understand her desire to see the alarm clock without setting it on her face. LOL

I never realized you were blind in one eye. You sure can't tell by have beautiful eyes :)
My sister-in-law, my hubby, me, and my brother have all had has been awesome. I LOVE was worth every penny spent. If you get a doctor that is very experienced the risks of problems are much less...I would say go for it, but that's just me :)

Thanks Jennifer..I have the fear that my blind eye will start straying and looking in another direction. I always ask Kyle, "are my eyes looking the same direction?!?" LOL

I will pass on your good experience with Lasik. I'm just chicken...but I'm not the one that can't see the alarm clock in the morning!
