I'm Indecisive

I'm 15 years old and I have Strabismus since I was three. I got really sick at that age and had a stroke that almost killed me. I saved in time but the stroke caused a problem to my left eye, making it turn outwards. At times it's not noticeable but when you look really closely, you can tell.

At first I didn't know I had this until I looked into it a year or two ago. I wasn't really sad about it because my friends treat me or accept me as me. Either they noticed or didn't, I'm grateful to have true friends.

At times I would be afraid to make eye contact becausey eye would drift. I would look at the person speaking and then turn away and then look back at them.

I wore glasses all my life and I asked my doctors for contacts but he said that he didn't want me to wear them because he wants me to protect my good eye. He suggested surgery but I don't know if I should have it. I'm afraid that I would have to have surgery again if something goes wrong. I don't want to worry my parents.

So what should I do? Get surgery or wait a little longer?
