Help Lauren get her eyesight back

I’m fundraising for laser eye surgery for the ability to see the world in a clearer picture, I have 3/4 of an arms length vision, after that it is blurry and I can only see colours and blurs, I can’t read signs and I can’t drive or work properly without help from glasses which I do wear, but even with them it’s still blurry (I’m not a danger to anyone I can see the legal limit to drive, but they hurt my eyes and give me headaches so they’re not working for me, I’ve had them for years so I know it’s nothing to do with ‘getting used to them’). Without vision aid I can’t even see my phone in my hand unless it’s close to my face, it’s blurry, and I can’t watch tv or do simple daily tasks, I can’t even recognise friends, family or my boyfriend when they’re over the road from me. I’ve been told by my optician it won’t stop or get better it will just continue to get worse. When I don’t wear my glasses it gives me headaches but when I wear them too much it also gives me headaches. Vision is a gift we are lucky to have, and it’s honestly so sad when it gets taken away from you over time, I would love to be able to get it back and with your help I can, any help is very appreciated even if it’s just a small donation or sharing my page around, Thankyou. With the surgery costing £5000 I could have 20/20 vision and see clearly, with a 10 year care guarantee so if it gets worse again they will do a repeat surgery for free. “Eye sight is so important and glasses dont work for everyone and contacts are not for everyone. For you glasses are not a viable option and being so young and it already affecting you so much is wrong it is so unfair.” - Havana Bailey
