I have never had great vision, having strabismus when I was a small child and then surgery to correct it my vision has never been perfect. I wore glasses for a couple of years during high school but then stopped wearing them and didn’t go back to the opticians until I noticed that my eyesight wasn’t as good as it once was.
When I finally went to the opticians they told me I was long sighted in one eye and short-sighted in the other – we all like to be different right! My right eye doesn’t have much of a prescription and I don’t wear a contact in the right eye either but the sight in my left eye isn’t great at seeing detail.
More often than not I wear my glasses rather than wearing contacts, when I first started wearing contacts they irritated my eyelid so I only wear them occasionally now in the hope that I will get used to them. Glasses are really popular at the moment and I have never had a worry about wearing them, there are so many frames and designs to choose from. I chose my glasses around 2 years ago now and love them, they suit my face shape and look smart.
There have been occasions when I have been in a rush and left the house without my glasses or contacts and after a few minutes it hits me that I can’t focus properly and I had to go back to get them. It’s only when I don’t wear my glasses or contacts that I realise just how bad my eyesight is.
I have thought about laser eye surgery in the past to improve my sight, it is quite costly but I think if it can improve my eyesight then it’s worth every penny. Optical Express offer laser eye surgery, in fact they are the number one provider of laser eye surgery in Europe. Unfortunately I had to put the thought of laser eye surgery to the back of my mind for the time being as earlier in the year I had surgery on my eye but it is something I will look into again as soon as I can.
If you think you need glasses or have noticed any changes in your sight make an appointment with your optician – don’t risk your eyesight.
Have you thought about having laser eye surgery? Or have you had laser eye surgery. I would love to know your experience if you have had the surgery.
