Never mind him! If you can't see this post, you definitely need glasses!


Whatever about glasses, I think you've just made me go deaf.

Yes. I like to drive by sense of smell.

So if you're short sighted the cornea is thick?
If your long sighted the Cornea is too thin?

I'm long sighted and was refused Laser Eye Surgery so basically because my Corneas are too thin the Laser can do sweet f all, Correct?


It's all about the curvature of the cornea. Laser Eye surgery just reshapes the curve so that it focuses light onto the retina correctly. A tiny lasers fires about 400 times per second to vaporise (not burn), the corneal tissue into a new very smooth shape. An eye tracker checks for movement of the eye about 4000 times per second and adjusts the laser accordingly.

It's actually quite rare for someone to have cornea's so thin that the procedure can't be done. Very unlucky.

Do contacts hurt at all?

I've heard it takes a while to get used to them, but i've also heard they can become stuck and stuff?


Ironically, I find the injury or a "scratched retina" to be horrifying, so I'm not too keen on trying anything that can endanger me at all. Only one set of eyes, and I am not too fond of the thoughts of anything except my eye lids touching them

Infection-Causing Amoeba May Be Resistant to Multiple Contact Lens Solutions

ScienceDaily (July 21, 2009) — A new study suggests that some contact lens solutions do not properly disinfect against Acanthamoeba, a free-living organism in the environment that can cause a painful vision-threatening infection.

You think that's bad they also said my fekcing eyes are flatter than the normal.
If you thought life was bad enough imagine having flat eyeballs

Too many years of watching porn on 2D computer screens will cause the flat eyes. Buy one of them new 3D screens, and they'll be fine in a few years.

Do you have to have glasses for a certain amount of time before you get laser eye surgery or not? not really liking the idea of contacts as I'm one of those people who dread the thought of touching their eyes


Lucky for you then that you don't touch your eyes. The lenses touch your eyes.

Wearing glasses full time since I was 9.

Stopped noticing a long, long time ago.


Probably time you upped your prescription in that case.

my physics lecturer says that it doesn't really help much at all unless you're really seriously impaired. and never get it done if you're still young. it burns your cornea off and reshapes it, leaving you with a much thinner cornea that's more prone to damage. and if you're young, your cornea hasn't developed fully yet so you would need to get it done again as your cornea changes shape.

Very true. I got it done in my early 20s and was wearing glasses again within 2 years.

I don't think I'll get it done again. I'm used to my glasses now. I need new lenses though.
