Just a bit on the lasik thing: lasik surgery can have negative effects, not in all cases but its still a possibility. Getting normal eyesight using natural means such as the Bates Method surely takes more time, but it has no negative side-effects...
I have worn glasses since 2nd grade and I personally am not going to get surgery, unless they start boasting a 100% success rate w/ no negative effects. We're talking about eyes
here, ya know?
I suggest you check out the Bates Method and the website Improve Vision Naturally: Improve Your Vision with Daily Eye Exercises
