I get on fine without glasses with -2.25 and -2.
Sometimes I do have to squint at people to see if i recognise them though. Maybe try using your glasses less?
I was quite fine without glasses with -3.25 and -3
I still had them but I hardly ever wore them.
And then my sight got worse (-4.25 and -4) and now I'd die without them
The thing with glasses is - the more you wear them, the lazier your eyes get. Your eyes don't have to work as much, so they're just like 'meh, can't be asked', they get used to having a perfect picture that's delivered by glasses. That's what I was told by my optician, at least
Even now, when I just can't see properly, I try not to use glasses when I'm at home. It gets easier after a few days, shapes/faces become familiar, you basically learn them all over again.
What I tried to say - I think you should really try to use them less, before you go for contact lenses
When it comes to the surgery - nope. A friend of mine had one a year ago, and she says it's the worst thing she's done. Apparently it hurt for a while, eyes become very sensitive, and the whole experience is terrifying.
