As the optician charged me for my new glasses, we began to talk about laser eye surgery. “I wouldn’t do it in a million years,” he told me, and I asked why.
“The horror stories, man. Blurred vision, blindness,” he replied.
“People don’t see me because their eye surgery went well. The ones it worked for stop seeing me, and the horror stories come back.
“So I’m the wrong person to ask,” he said. And I knew he was wise.
