LASIK is not an inexpensive surgery, and we acknowledge that it can put a financial burden on some households and individuals. However, there are financing plans available that can make the surgery a reality for many prospective patients. Let's look into these matters right now.

As is the custom with Antarctic youth, I spent much of my childhood assigned to guard-duty every other night at the penguin defense watchtower situatedatop the northern gate of my village. The watchtower wasa sort of landlocked crow's nest that provided first warning against an impending penguin attack. Though the long, exhausting nocturnal hours were punctuated only byhowling Antarctic wind, litsputteringly by asemi-circle of whale-oil lamps, and soured always by the possibility of a hoard of fanged penguins in their characteristic spiked hatsleaping over the walls and razing our village to the ground,I could always depend on myguard-shift culminating with a lovingly prepared chunk of spiced glacier awaiting my arrival home, courtesy of Mother.

I apologize for the immense delay. I was busy. Writing reports. Meeting with important people in New York, Hong Kong, London, and Berlin. Harvesting Rice Krispie squares from the depths of the Amazon rain forest.
