Met with a Lasiks doctor to see if my eyeballs fit this procedure. My left eye is to bad for Lasiks but I can get what is called a Clear Lens exchange (CLE) The surgeon will make a small incision in my eyeball, destroy my original, born with lens and replace it with a new one that my eye will grow around. The right eye can undergo Lasiks and then I won't have to wear glasses and my vision will be close to 20/20. Sounds easy enough and only takes about ten to fifteen minutes to complete. The price for my left eye is $2,400 and my right eye will be $999. What to do? Is this worth not wearing glasses? What if they screw up? Do I REALLY trust the medical field? These procedures will not effect snowboarding, running, mountain climbing, scuba diving or night vision with a headlamp and tired eyes. Might have to sleep on this one. Next step is to meet with the eye surgeon next Tuesday.
