Usually, there’s a trigger involved in making you opt for LASIK. Something happens and you say to yourself, “that’s it, I am tired of glasses.” For me, it was joining a gym and realizing how big of a nuisance they were—always slipping off, always having them to wear them off and on.

My eyesight had started deteriorating when I was in the 11th grade. By the time I was 25, my prescription was -5.25D in both eyes. That made me practically blind without glasses. For the longest time, I didn’t mind wearing frames and vision correction surgery was never on my mind. Slowly though, little things started to bother me:

Even if I ignore all the annoyances—at the assumption that I am overstating them—being totally dependent on glasses just sucked. There were times I didn’t want to wear them while going out, but that was impossible for me.

When I was 28, I decided I should get the surgery. The timing felt correct as my prescription had been stable for a couple of years now.
