If you really had the choice, would you choose to be short-sighted?
It is not normal to be short-sighted.
Many people who are shortsighted say that they don’t mind wearing glasses or contacts. They say its part of who they are and what they are used to it. Some even feel that they like wearing glasses.
But think about it. It is not normal to be short-sighted. Let’s imagine that you always had normal vision. You can see everything clearly from the moment you wake till you go to sleep and you never have to reach for glasses or contacts to put your world in focus. That’s normal vision.
Now let’s suppose that you have an operation or an accident or something happens to you and as a result, you have to wear the glasses or the contacts you have now in order to see clearly again. So you would go to an eye specialist and ask them how do you get your normal vision back. Imagine that the specialist tells you that you must wear glasses or contacts every day for the rest of your life. It’s unlikely that your reaction would be “Wow, that’s great. Thanks”. By now you would have realised that glasses or contacts do not cure Myopia, they merely make it survivable. And then when they tell you that you must come back every year to get a new prescription it is probable that you will ask “But is there any way I can have my normal vision back and not have to bother every day with glasses or contacts?” They would answer “Yes, you can have Smile laser and in fact, it’s safer than soft contact lens wear.” We believe that your answer is a no brainer. “Yes please, can we do it today… now!”
So if a shortsighted person really had a choice they would choose normal vision over short-sightedness. Because shortsightedness creeps up on you over the years from a young age it can seem that it is OK to live with glasses or contacts but in fact, it is not.
Modern laser eye surgery is now so safe that it is safer than contact lens wear over the lifetime of a shortsighted person. It even can be adjusted if required (rarely) every decade or so if the focus shifted. And it brings normal vision, the vision we are all supposed to have.
Make that no brainer decision now and get Smile laser correction. Be normal.
