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.
