I kept weighing the price of the surgery with the cost of my contact lenses and thought I was saving money. When I finally had laser correction surgery done I could see things I had never even noticed before. Not only did my vision improve but my life improved as well.

My only regret is that I wish I had done it sooner, I think of all
of these things I may have missed over the years.
