Visiting the opticians shouldn't cause any distress to you.. everyones eyesight deteriorates with age, same as mine! Laser eye surgery does not stop you from having appointments no, as I think it's mandatory for everyone in the UK to have their eyes checked as a lot of issues can be detected through examining the eyes.
If you're worried about glasses on the other hand, opt for contact lenses.. if you can see everyday objects easily though then there's no need to worry about anything!
hope this helps..

Reason: Misuse of anonymous
This is crazy. You're willing to let someone laser your eyeballs, but scared of reading an eye chart? Getting laser eye surgery will involve reading eye charts on several occasions, and in addition involves having part of your cornea vaporised with an excimer laser. Needless to say, it's the vaporisation that most people would be nervous about.
Just go and have an eye test. If you can read to the 6/6 line or beyond with both eyes, there's no problem. If you can't, then they'll probably be able to give you glasses or contact lenses, thus improving your vision. It's a win:win situation.

I always feel pressurised by them to buy the more expensive glasses.
