I'm really not sure what to do. I went to my appointment today and it went fairly well. It's just going to be rather expensive...like $3300. I can get a $0 down 0% interest for one year thing, but that will still be $275 a month if I don't want to pay interest. I'm really not sure. I want to get the procedure done but the payments don't sound appealing at all. But when do they ever? Stick Out Tongue My eyes are dialated and it's giving me a headache. I will have to consider this more when I can think straight. I scheduled a tentative surgery date, though, and it's next week, so I need to do some quick thinking.

August 8 Spending:
$7 mochas for SO and me

He bought some groceries at the whole foods market, about $24. I offered to pay but he said he would!
We made an Indian dish for dinner and I made a raw dessert (interesting).

    I don't know what your work situation is, but if you have a health flex spending plan and you can enroll/increase your deductions soon then maybe you should wait. By putting the money in your flex plan you can put money aside throughout the year and you don't have to have the money all at once, but you can go ahead and get the procedure done in the first month. Plus the money you put in the account is before taxes so that should save you at least 25%. Might be worth waiting a few months if this option is available to you. The only downside would be if you lost your job, you would have to payback the flex plan for the money you spent on Lasik. Also I guess you need to verify you can use your flex plan for the Lasik surgery. I know people who have done this, but your plan may be different.

    Hi Kashi!

    My dad got Lasik a few years ago, and he swears by it! If there's anyway you can swing the payments, I would say go for it! (GFI!!) It'll make a world of difference.

    My sister got Lasik over six years ago and she had problems - star patterns on the streetlights at night. She wasn't blinded or anything, but she still wears light reading glasses if she's doing something important, like driving. I don't know whether the problems occurred because it was a newer procedure at that time, or that she tried to cheap it out. She'd tell you that she sees better than before, but that's it.
