    Hi Scotty, yeah mate, I had it all and just about have a pair of new eyes. On both eyes have lens implants, duel laser treatment and floaters removed and pumped with gas inside. Best investment and decision I ever made....

    Must have cost you a fortune, they want 4- to 5.5k per eye for lens replacement, that will fix vision all round, long short whatever and remove the cataract slowly forming.

    Might have to sell some toys lol

    I did it 4 years ago at around a total of 15k and my private insurance paid half... Best thing I ever did and now days, technology is more advanced, so as long as you have the money, it can get done.

    I did look into it a few years ago.
    Went in to the place in melbourne.
    Looked good.
    The cost was up there
    I was told that it is good but after the age of 40 your muscles in your eyes relax so even if i got the surgery at age 30 there was still a chance id have to wear glasses again. So that put me off it.

    Plus glasses are cool superman wore a pair

    Had it in 2012 for long sighted. Couldn't see shit. Best thing I ever did. No more contacts or glasses. But as per Ben, they did tell me that as I age, I will need to get reading glasses - which I am fighting as hard as I can to ignore... Losing battle I reckon - maybe at most 6-10 months before I give in.
    About $2.5k per eye I think..
