eye sight help!!!

Today i realize my right eye are seening things a bit more blurry, usually cannot notice with two eyes seening one thing. my vision is very poor, left eye .7, while right eye is .85. I suspect it just went up to .9 to .95

sigh worrying gonna go blind and shit, so much tension building up with my eyes. At this point im very stressed, been dealing with poor vision all my life since i was a kid.


Therefore im thinking doing laser surgery? will that solve the problem? making my eyes bullet proof? LASIK or PRK procedure?

Could you please share your experience with them and if possible, how much you paid for the procedure?



I believe the surgery costs $2-3g, which is a lot of money.....definitely not chump change.

please share your knowledge and experience.


One of my friend got it done in asia, he paid roughly $1000 cdn for a pair, took him 6 months to fully recover, as he was very sensitive towards the light. And he said it was actually rather painful for months

This has been covered in a lengthy thread if you search.

Coles notes: PRK>Lasik.

Lasik will get your eyes back to 20/20 vision, but like you said, it costs around 2,000$. Honestly I wouldn't because the procedure scares the shit out of me and glasses are fine for me. But if poor eyesight is really bothering you, I guess it wouldn't be such a bad idea.
