Insertable contact lenses
So i've been thinking of doing the lasik surgery for some time, and finally got off my duff and had a consult today.
Apparently because of my extreme near-sightedness, i'm not a very good candidate for the LASIK, as they'd have to do a lot of reshaping, which increases the chances of side effects like halos, and would prevent them from doing further lasik surgery as my cornea would have been thinned considerably. (So no touch-ups down the road)
But, the doctor did push for the insertable contact lens, and i was wondering if anyone else here has had it or knew of someone who's had it done. Apparently its been around in europe for 13 years or so and just got approved by the FDA pretty recently. One nifty thing is that its reversible, they can actually remove it later, though its not neccesary to do so.
There have been a bunch of lasik threads in the past, but this is slightly different, so i made a new thread, apologies if you think otherwise.
