    I didn't have to wear contacts or glasses...
    By Galen of Edgewood May 09, 2001, 01:27 AM

    to see.

    They get quite annoying and I can't afford Lasik or any other permenant sight correction technique...

    By koby May 09, 2001, 05:23 AM

    true.

    Try ripping your eyes out with a spoon, then no glasses. But you'ld have a new problem then. Please tell me if my thoughtful suggestion has helped.

    Just wait until they come out with that visor thing that Geodi wears in Star Trek. Then you'd be stylin'. Of course, Mrs. of Edgewood would probably dis-own you.

    This is a dream of mine. Just got new glasses; I am officially blind as a bat. sww thinks it's funny. He wears one contact, if he feels like it, cause his vision isn't really bad without correction -- he can still pass the driver's test! I have to walk around with my hands out in front of me when I don't have my glasses on so I don't bump into stuff! Why, oh why, won't insurance pay for vision correction surgery?

    Can you not get surgery with a downpayment scheme over in the mighty US?? My g/f is about as blind as you and still a student so for her that's going to be the only option.

    That's kind of strange, because just about everyone in my family needs glasses. Both sides, 3/4 of the people.

    Thats my dream too Galen.

    I used to have 20/15 vision myself. Then I hit the 5th grade and they've gone down ever since. Granted, I'm only needing -2.25 contacts to see 20/20 or so, but hey...

    Just wait... they (as in they... i dont know who they is) are testing a new for of laser surgery, where new optical and computer technology can even correct the minute imperfections on the cornea.

    It has the potential to give PERFECT vision.

    Galen, you're farsighted? I don't know very many young farsighted people. And you know that's hardly any correction at all! I thought when my prescription was -2.5 and -2.75 that I couldn't see. Now that my prescription is -7.5 and -8.0, I know what it's really like to not be able to see . . . if they put the eye chart in front of me at the prescribed distance, I can't even tell it's there . . .much less read the big E.

    My father recently asked his dad, who has severe vision problems at 84 years old, whether he should still be driving. "Dad, can you see the other cars on the road?" Gramps says, "I certainly can! I can't tell you if they're cars or elephants, but I can certainly see them!" I sympathize with his problem.

    My eyes have just started getting bad (9th grade). Now I wear -2.5 contacts (not too bad). But what's really funny is that b4 I got contacts (a month ago), I played basketball a lot, and killed people at it! Don't know how, the rim was a red blur...

    Sorry, I'm dumb. Got that one backwards. It's -2.25 or -2.50.

    Sorry!
