One Response to A Lasik Story

  1. i tried to get lasik years ago but the doctor told me my cornea was too thin when they were doing the necessary pre eye testing. supposely it needs to be a certain thickness for safe surgery. he said that there is a risk of my cornea collapsing if i went ahead. no thank you!… i’ll go with the hassles of glasses rather that being blind.
