I hate earthquakes!! I live in Los Angeles County, California. Not too long ago we had a 4.5 earthquake, and it completely left me in shock. I unfortunately wear contacts and glasses. Without them I cannot see very clearly at all. At the time of the earthquake the last thing on my mind was to go put on the contacts, because I could not find my glasses. I was way too scared to stay in my room and look for them, so I just ran out with out them. It was very hard to see, but I knew that I just had to deal with it. Even if you are not living in California, emergencies and earthquakes can happen at anytime, whether we are ready or not. Recently my friend got caught in a tornado in Chicago (the windy city) I want to be able to at least see clearly when things like this happen. The only way I can make that happen is by getting LASIK Surgery.
