I'm having surgery on my collarbone and then a Lasik consultation on Friday. I have way too many race reports involving "losing contacts." I used to lose my contacts in roller derby and keep a pair in my sports bra. Earlier in the year, I lost both of my contacts during a breakaway and kept riding hard because I couldn't see 100m behind me. I lost a contact in the time trial the day before when I was wearing glasses. Those stories are sort of funny--being motivated to go fast because you can't see behind you-- but crashing isn't.
I just remember trying so hard to concentrate around the turns and squinting to try to figure out if the pace motorcycle was turning left or right ahead. I think I just relaxed for a moment and then BAM! hit the cone. It's frustrating thinking about it.
I hear Michael Gilbert is the bomb for Lasik. I hear it's only $1950-$2750 per eye! I saw all these coupons for other places for $600/eye. I guess the idea of using a coupon for surgery isn't that great of an idea.
Anyone have any Lasik connections or recommendations?
