Farzana's Lasek Surgery Fund
Organized by: Farzana Gafar
My name is Farzana and I am a 24 year old female who resides im Queens, NY. All of my life since the age of 9, I've been wearing glasses. Through out the years my vision has became worst. My vision is currently at a -14 and within another few years it will increasingly become worst. Insurances don't pay for LASEK surgery due to the fact they consider it to be a "cosmetic surgery", and with juggling college and paying for bills it's nearly impossible to save almost $9000 towards having a surgery that can potentially change my life. I've had hopes and dreams of joining the US Navy but even if I was to join I wouldn't be accepted due to my eye sight. Having my vision being so bad, it prevents me for perusing a life like other individuals my age.
