in thread The state of my vision

I don't wear glasses, although my most recent eye-test said I'd probably benefit from some glasses for reading and computer work (+1.00L/+1.25R).

But I have been doing some reading, and you may be selling your opthamologist short. I'm apparantly far-sighted, and my reading tells me that Lasik doesn't help far-sightedness, just myopia. If your Dr. is far-sighted, then he may need glasses, but can't benifit from Lasik.

I also have friends who have been told that Lasik likely wouldn't provide enough correction to eliminate the need for glasses. Based on that, they don't see a real benefit from Lasik. Your Dr. could be in the same boat.

If you are concerned, you might want to ask him why he hasn't gone for Lasik.
