    I wear glasses and contacts and like you, have reservations about getting laser surgery. My grandfather had a botched eye surgery that pretty much ruined his life, so I have seen first hand the devastation of losing your eyesight. However, this is very rare and life is about taking chances. To some, it is worth the risk. To me, I’d rather deal with the lenses.

    I got laser surgery on my eyea 2 years ago, and for me, it was the best thing I could do. I have dry eyes so I couldn’t bear contact lenses (they hurt so much), and wearing glasses made me very nervous and uncomfortable. I hated my glasses, and my lenses as well! The eye doctor said that, 5 years ago, she wouldn’t have recommended lasering, but today it’s much safer so you can’t get blind anymore. (At least this is the case in Germany when you get lasered by a certified eye surgeon, and this is what I did.) The lasering itself is done within a minute, and during the procedure you have around 20 seconds of severe discomfort per eye, but then you’re done and fine. They even gurantee you free re-lasering if the result is below the eyesight you’d have with glasses or lenses, and in my case they did it perfectly in one session, and I have 160 % eyesight now. I’m very happy! The only necessary condition is that your eyes have been stable for at least a year or two before lasering, otherwise they might get worse again. Mine are still fine. 🙂

    Hope your eye exam went well. I’ve been contemplating laser eye surgery for the same reason also. I know the chances are slim that something could go very wrong, but like you said, these are my eyes. Hope you can get the bumper thing estimated soon. Maybe you can call and ask if they do off site estimations, like if they could go to where your car is or something. Hope you’re having a great weekend.
