I started researching LASIK eye surgery at some point in 2006. However, I was still scared of the surgery and wasn't sure if I wanted it, the price was high, and I gave up on it.
Well, recently, I don't know what happened, but I became interested in the surgery again. So I did some internet research, and actually signed up to go to a seminar at Strong Vision yesterday morning. So I went, and... well, it was a bad idea. Because now I really want LASIK eye surgery. And the problem is I really can't afford it.
If money weren't an issue, I would make my consultation appointment as soon as possible, and then have my surgery ASAP after that. It sounded pretty amazing, and this doctor is supposedly the best in the area, and one of the best from all over.
What I would give to be able to fall asleep at night while watching television! Or to be able to see when I get out of bed in the morning! Or to be able to swim with my eyes open underwater! It would be really nice to have it done before we get married and go on our (absolutely fantastic!) honeymoon... but alas, it most likely won't happen. I just don't have $4,000-$5,000 laying around that I can put toward the surgery, and even with the payment plans they offer... it would be a stretch to make the payments every month with everything else we are currently trying to pay for.
It just really sucks. Maybe in June 2009, after my car is paid off... :(
