I was denied LASIK at my consultation because my cornea is too thin compared to what it should be sad day

Had it earlier in the week as well. Glad you're feeling better.

I asked my eye doc about LASIK and she laughed in my face. That's how bad my eyes are.

Don't get a laser surgery. Just... don't. While it sharpens your vision, it also causes both short-and long-term health effects, such as decreased field of view. It's also a risky procedure.

I'll rather wear glasses than go for a laser surgery, even if I could afford it.

I like having glasses. Can give you a completely different look, makes the wardrobe/fashion choices endless, depending if you wear Contacts or glasses that day.

I typically wear contacts everyday...

Glasses + hat = disguise.

I looked good in glasses when I had a longer hair. I decided to shave it off prior to the new year's eve. Yeah, all of it.

I checked some glasses on Monday, found similar ones that I had before. They look reasonable, but because I've been eating too much and gaining weight again, they don't look as good as they could. The frames were 80% off but the lenses alone would've cost 159€, so the total cost would've been 198€ and some cents. That's almost 200€. Not gonna spend about 60% of my monthly income on glasses.

So I guess I'm stuck in the 240p vision for a bit longer.

Also, my mom's cable TV box broke today. ****ing awesome. Tried to fix it but in vain.

And of course there are simply no 20-30€ basic models, in fact the cheapest ones are on 70€ range. Screw that, she ain't gonna spend that much and nor will I, as I don't own a TV or ever watch it.

Man if I could get Lasik I would do it in a heart beat. Most of those risks have been minimized by modern laser technology, and I have been wearing glasses since the third grade and I am sick to death of them. I would really like the option to just wake up and NOT wear glasses

LASIK was awesome. Only part that freaked me out was the smell.

Long term damage to the eye? What sort of myth is that? lol.

I'm the only member of my family who has never needed any sort of glasses or contacts. I always felt like I really lucked out on that, but instead of glasses I ended up having one of my permanent teeth never grow in. Basically, that involved me having braces twice for a total of 4 years (because the first orthodontist screwed up) and having major jaw surgery (which has been the cause of my occasional sinus problems) when I was 20. All because of one tooth.

So yeah, there's my medical issues. Thought I should contribute.

I'm glad the doctor didn't decide you needed amputation. Even minor surgery can be very dangerous. #oblivioussuburbanmom

Made some annoying girls that were trying to get "White girl wasted" really mad at Reids last night. They were apparently very into the new Drake album that was playing front to back on the juke, so my friends coughed up enough to play 2112, Echoes by Floyd, and a 30 minute Miles Davis tune in a row.

Started off at Burger Mo's, went to Reids, to Mcgoverns, then back to Mo's for a burger, nightcap, and to call a cab. Good night overall with no real speed bumps like usual.

At the Burnsville Mall with the gal. Walked by the Hockey Lodge store there. Lulz. People are nuts. There's barely anything left in the store and its just jam-packed with humans. Oh the smell...

I'm protesting the lockout by not buying merch this year... Actually I'm just broke. Really want an Aeros hoodie, my little cousin just got one and they are sick.
