One Week Away

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had terrible vision: nearsighted and astigmatism.

I’ve had all flavors and sizes of glasses and contacts, some good and some garbage. My latest contacts, Acuvue Oasis for Astigmatism, have been excellent: long wearing, very comfortable, good vision, and almost zero maintenance fuss.

However, I spend many hours in front of a computer screen, so inevitably my eyes get tired and if vision is even a little sub-par, I get minor headaches. I’ve never had really great vision with glasses, I’ve had better luck with contacts, but I’m simply tired of fighting with this.

So next week, I’ll be changing my approach: LASIK here I come.

Right now, I’m both excited and scared. Fortunately, I’m working with a great eye surgeon, Dr. Cary M. Silverman M.D. of Eyecare 20/20. It is a bit of a drive up to East Hanover, NJ for the procedure, but these are my EYES that we are talking about.
