Doc,

The good news is, NOW I CAN SEE PERFECTLY!

The bad news is, NOW I CAN SEE PERFECTLY!

Now that I no longer wear glasses, I have to ask you about a plastic surgeon to take care of those bags under my eyes!

And now that I can read so well without reading glasses, I see how lousy the market is doing...

Despite these (temporary) issues, I still think that LASIK is one of the best things I have done for myself, ever.

I enclose a photo from a country club membership card, to show you what I used to look like with glasses.
