Due to our proximity to the Gimbel Eye Center, we see a lot of people going to get laser beams shot at their retinas. It's a moderately expensive procedure, and there's always a slight risk of failure. So, why do it? Sure, it helps your vision, but then again so do glasses and contact lenses.
#4. You Can Finally Stop Squinting at Everything
Above: Two of the most accomplished squinters in contemporary history.
As effective as squinting can be (according to Seinfeld), it's no way to go through life. Unless you're George Costanza. or Clint Eastwood. At any rate, it actually doesn't help your visual acuity in any way, and it'll give you wrinkles. Which, again, is probably fine if you're a Cowboy but otherwise is something to be frowned on.
#3. It Costs Less In the Long Run
While the operation can be expensive, it's not very much when compared to the cost of buying new glasses and contacts for the rest of your life. You also save in time. You only spend a few days recovering from having the lasers gouge out bits of your eyes, and then you'll never have to fiddle round with glasses or contacts again.
#2. The Longer You Wait, The Less Effective It'll Be
The effectiveness of the surgery depends somewhat on the rigidity of your corneas. The older you get, the more rigid your eyes become. So, while the length of the term is measured in years and decades, it is true to say that the longer you wait, the smaller the benefit you'll see from the surgery.
