Life After Laser Eye Surgery

pros and cons of laser eye surgery

I first started wearing glasses when I was 9 years old.  Fast forward two years, it went from wearing them occasionally to see the chalkboard, to all the time. When I was 14 years old  I got braces and I asked my dad to get contacts. He originally said no and told me to wait it out.

I have three beautiful nieces. The eldest Amiya is 9, then there’s Ayanna, age 5 and the youngest Aileen, whose 16 months. My sisters and I had very humble beginnings and I strongly believe that our drive, ambition and appreciation of our blessings is attributed to that.

My nieces are the first children from both sides of the grandparents, so it’s only inevitable they are showered with gifts.
