If anyone can give me input, I could use it. I'm trying to take my mind off of my anxiety by focusing on another thing, perhaps.
So I wear glasses. One of my eyes is so bad. Like, nearing legal blindness. The lense for that particular eye is very thick. Every one notices. My other eye is fine, even through imaging tests. It's near 20/20 with regular lenses.
Since one eye is bad, I'm wondering would it be worth it to preform LASIK surgery for just one eye? Instead of continuing. I heard, from doctors, even driving and all of these other things might pose difficult for me later on, and more damage to my eye, like getting hit in the eye or other injuries, could leave me blind in that eye.

I would speak to the doctor and ask him would surgery be the best option. East for us to suggest one thing or another. We are not in your situation. If I was certain it would fix the problem, I would sway towards having it done. I would want to know the success rate. Plus is it something that would last forever. Or would you have to get it done again further down the line. Those are the sort of questions I would be asking my doctor.
