Brad often refers to his LASIK surgery as phase one of the resurrection. I guess he feels that part of him has been, as the scriptures say, "made whole."
He got his first pair of glasses in 1972 while in the 5th grade. For the next 26 years he wore either glasses or contacts. What a pain. His eyesight was so bad he used to call himself - bear bait. Meaning, that's what he'd be if he ever lost his glasses while out hiking, because he would never be able to find his way out of the woods.
In 1998 he finally made the plunge to get lasik surgery. It was expensive ($5000) but we both feel it's one of the best investment we've ever made.
