Hey,Fred,my arms got too short a couple years ago,bought 1.25 glasses at a discount store,$5 a pair. I'm at 1.50 now,still $5. Have about 6 pair scattered everywhere. Will probrably have to go to 1.75's at some point. I'm not going to do any surgery till I have to,besides the glasses hide the wrinkles under my eyes, LOL. And you are right,any advice we need is on this site.

fred--the 2 best investments i have made that made me feel good was #1 (close/almost tie)-eye surgery--then a very close #2 a heart transplant (also elective) for the scarab-blue lighting made me feel as comfortable as diamond vision--john

Let me add another option for those of you who don't have too bad of a lens perscription....Intacts. Also known as corneal rings. I was a little concerned about any long term effects of Lasik and my eyes weren't too bad, so I opted for the Intacts.
They insert small, clear C-rings over the cornea to correct the sphere of the cornea. came out with 20/10 vision - that's fighter pilot vison! Just a little pressure on the eyes, a microscopic stitch over the lens of the eye, and you're otta there.
Best part is, it's not permanent. If I need a heavier ring they can replace them, or if I'm just unhappy with them - they can take them out. So, I could then go with Lasik as a final, permanent option in thened. Just thought I'd share that with you guys!

Thumbs up dangerkitty, 28 Pantera

Wifey had Lasik done 2+ years, in Orlando Dr Brock Mcgruder and"ME LIKEY" ! ! ! !. She makes a great navigator in the boat at 75+. She came home, took a nap and wokeup to see the clock across the room. May need readers in a couple years,but may not. No more messing with contacts on planes, in boats, or snow sking.

She says she'd do it again, we even have her video of her procedure, Both eyes 10 minutes. "Yes , I.m glad I did it". (Wifey)

Go for it.
