Recently Sophia has been objecting to me wearing glasses. Whenever she is within range of my glasses she says “bueh!” (her version of I don’t want or 不要) and grabs it off my face. Which re-ignites my interest in lasik. The thought of a future spectacles-free contact lenses -free life really appeals to me but reading all the medical literature about lasik flap complications really freaks me out. Of course, there is information saying lasik is a rather safe procedure and everyone around me who has gone through the process emerged happy with it. Still, it is unnecessary and has a potential risk (albeit small one) to cause serious vision issues. So I’m still in two minds about it.
I’m really sounding like a bimbo who only only cares about looks in this post but I’m just bursting with the desire to shout out that I met a bunch of new people yesterday and they all thought I was a student! When they knew I was a lawyer they got a shock then assumed I was fresh out of law school so they got a second/third shock when they realised I have been working for some 6 years and already am a mum!
Anyway, sorry to digress, back to lasik, what do you think? To go for it or not? The thought of being able to run after Sophia without pushing up glasses slipping down sweaty noses or blinking back blurness caused by dry contact lenses is very appealing. But the thought of potential complications is not. Oh what is a mum to do?
