      Most laser eye surgery reshapes corneas to sharpen vision and you can’t do this without surgery so no 🙁

      You can however get contact lenses that you wear for a full month without having to take out every night! I wear these now and they are amazing!!!

      Often as you get older (old old, like 35 and over!) your eyes start getting more and more long sighted. For people (like me!) who are shortsighted, this can sometimes work to correct their vision, fixing their shortsightedness. This doesn’t work for everyone though, and you have to wait till your middle aged 🙂

      Wow John really? Fingers crossed that happens to me 🙂

      I am short sided and often wear contacts or glasses. I have fortngihtly disposable though (take out at night).

      I had a friend who got the eye surgery- he said it was one of the worst experinces he had getting it done, you ever seen what they do. You have to be awake when they do it- youtube it and that is enough to put me off of it. That being said, his eyesight is perfect and doesnt have to worry about glasses anymore which is pretty cool. But then again, glasses are in ATM- geek sheek baby!
