Just found out the other day. With glasses I can see well enough to live normally, but over time my sight will continue to decline. My condition can be corrected with surgery to replace my lenses and corneas, but the Surgeons I have spoken with say they want to put it off as long as possible in the hopes that if we can buy another 5-10 years in glasses, medical technology will be better and they will have more options. My glasses now cost over $1K a pair because of the special kind of lenses I need to have made.
honestky, I’m very thankful that I am in a position that allows me to get the glasses I need without struggling. I’m also very happy to live in a country in which we have access to very talented and brilliant Physicians to treat us. If socialism happens, these conditions will cease to exist.
