I'm going through a rough patch in terms of how I feel about my looks. What it usually ends up boiling down to is 'glasses vs no glasses'.
To clarify, this isn't a vague "are glasses good or bad?" question; I know glasses look fantastic on some people, like Richard Ayoade.
This is more of a, "If I feel more confident without glasses, is that worth risking the potential complications of Lasik eye surgery?". I know the success rates are actually pretty high, but it really only takes one or two "my sight got ruined for life" horror stories to make this a seriously tough decision.
It may end up being the case that I have to post the glasses vs no glasses pictures of myself, but this would come dangerously close to one of those rate-me posts... which I've never done so the idea unnerves me, to say the least!
I'd love to hear what people think before I resort to that, though! Cheers for reading.
(p. s. I hate contact lenses with a passion. Let's consider those as being a last resort only!)

well, I don't know. if you really truly cannot stand wearing glasses, and you can afford lasik surgery then just go for it. yeah its a risk but basically so is any other surgery. find a really good doctor to perform the surgery on you.
i wouldn't mind if you posted a picture of glasses vs no glasses. i wouldn't look down on you for it. it may help you make up your mind, although it should be up to you and your own taste.1
