Do you wear glasses most of the time, or contacts?

I've thought about doing LASIK. My wife had her eyes done a few years ago and she maintains that its the best thing she's ever done.

Ive had lasik and it is one of the best things I've done!

My eyes weren't so bad, but I couldn't drive without correction. Had lasik on thursday, rode my motorcycle to followup on friday and was at work on Saturday! oh wait, work on Saturday

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I wear glasses when I wake up and while getting ready, then contacts for the day, and glasses again at night.

I've thought about LASIK, too. Maybe someday.

Look into ICL procedure
It is much more expensive compared to lasik
but the biggest advantage is that ICL is reversible
While lasik changes your cornea shape and thickness permanently
You never know what will happen to your eyes in the future... Such as glaucoma or other stuff

I'm sort of ashamed to admit that I'm one of those people who wear the extended wear contacts for weeks and months on end without doing anything. So far, no ill effects that my eye doctor can see.

So one day when I'm whining about how my vision is ruined by all the ulcers on my corneas, you can point to this post and remind me that it's all my own fault.

My wife does that and has already had an ulcer on her cornea. There are no long term consequences......yet.

i had lasik done too (about 4 years ago). i'm pretty happy with it; it's great not having to take your contacts in and out every night, losing a contact, etc.

She didn't even know until she went in for her annual eye exam. They don't cause any pain or major issues until you get a bunch of them. That's when scar tissue can form and fug up your vision.

Their casual shoes aren't bad at all. Hell, if a person doesn't wear nice shoes but once a week their dress shoes aren't a bad option, either. It all depends on the intended use.

If memory serves, I think they've got some good looking driving loafers/moccasins.

Here are some of my recent shoe purchases (have been purging the closet and buying some staple items) to give you guys an idea on what I have, which may spark an idea for the J&M gift card - was thinking a lighter brown dress oxford...? Socks are a good idea, but I'd rather just buy some gold-toes and put this towards something more substantial.

AE Strands in WalnutMagnanni Antonio OxfordNordstrom Arutro Oxford

...or do I just sell the gift card and put the $ towards some AE's?
