    I had a really positive experience with my laser eye treatement! it cost me just shy of 2000 dollars but was totally worth it. My recovery time was quick, no more discomfort within 3 days, and was back to work at day 6! If you want to hear about the specifics of the whole process...

    The Best Thing I Have Ever Done

    I wanted to have laser eye surgery

    since I knew it was possible, and I finally did it just this February. $3000 Some people have said that's expensive, but to never have to worry about falling asleep with my glasses on, or losing my friends at the waterpark, it's so worth it. I'm so happy, although I'm constantly...
