I hate having poor eyesight. I need new prescriptions every year, it used to be every few years. I know I should bitch and moan since some people can't see at all but I really do hate it. I am legally blind, though not truely blind thankfully. I'm thankful that I can see at all but it still depresses the hell out of me.
Tomorrow (well, today) I need to get my eyes examined so I can get new prescriptions. *sigh*
New glasses and new contacts.

No surgery option? My dad had an operation on his eyes after developing cateracts, he said it was amazing how clear his vision became and really annoying that they hadn't suggested the operation mega years earlier when his vision started getting bad...

I'm afraid to get it. I read that a lot of the laser eye surgery goes bad :x
Plus I don't know if my insurance would cover it, I should look into it but I'm still paranoid

I'm not a fan of hospitals and surgery either...

My dad didn't have laser, they replaced the lens or something, it all sounded very unpleasant but apparantly it was fine and didn't bother him at all...

Ah I know of that surgery. I hear it's fairly painless. Of course, my doctor said that getting my tonsils removed wouldn't hurt too much. I have an ok threshold for pain and I can tell you it DID hurt. I couldn't even eat the ice cream I was supposed to have :|

My problem is needles mainly, I guess it's a mental thing but anything involving an injection/blood taking triggers a massive pain response in me. Yet oddly getting a piercing or a tattoo doesn't bother me in the least!

The last time I went to get a new perscription (about a month ago) was the first time my eyes havent gone down every 6 months since I started wearing glasses.

Do you know how bad they have to be to be considered legally blinde? I wonder if I am..lol. What is your contact perscription?

I'm legally blind too. :( It sucks. I can't see further than maybe two or three inches in front of my face without glasses.
