I agree about the eyes and teeth "degrading." Frickin B.S.I do find it odd that our eyes degrade so much. Wonder if that was an issue in earlier humans. That and teeth, why are our teeth so fragile? Don't brush and floss regularly? Your teeth rot and fall out. Animals in the wild don't have that problem.
Maybe there will eventually be an update to fix all of this.
I got LASIK so I'm glad I don't need glasses anymore, but was told once I hit 40 I'll need some for up close. I guess the LASIK was worth it either way though so it basically bought me 10 years of no glasses and even when I do hit 40 I'll only need them for close and not necessarily have to put them on all the time.
The part I hated about glasses is that the lenses are coming smaller and smaller. It's one of the things that drove me to get LASIK I was tired of always having tunnel vision. I hate that fashion takes precedence over functionality.
I don't mind my glasses, though. I used to wear contacts (started at like 19-20 I think) then went for several years without and then got glasses cause I was sick of screwing with contacts. Mine are for distance vision (I'm nearsighted). Plus the glasses help in offsetting my balding head. I'd consider LASIK if it was guaranteed to work and didn't cost a fortune.
But I'm pretty satisfied with my glasses; they don't bother me when I'm wearing them and I just take them off when I get home (they're mainly for driving). Not sure if my prescription wlll change next time I go in for check-up but I don't think it did last time.
