What percentage of frum families make over 200k yearly?
No way, you would have to completely insane about becoming a physician to just start undergraduate studies at this point in your life. Take it from someone who just finished a health graduate school with kids.

smartcookie- I am training to be an optometrist
According to the wills eye manual, other treatment options include: epithelial debridement(they gently remove any loose epithelium and hope it heals properly), extended bandage contact lens wear, anterior stromal puncture, and the last option is using a laser to ablate the middle layer of the cornea. This is called phototherapeutic keratectomy, and they claim that that it is 90% successful in patients with recurrent erosions due to corneal dystrophies. Do you know what caused your erosion. Was it trauma?
Depending on how long you have this problem, you may need various eye drops or a protective contact lens. Did you go see an eye doctor yet?
eclipse- I am actually taking a contact lens course right now in optometry school and the reason it is dangerous is because as it is with a lens on the eye you are getting less oxygen to your cornea, when you are sleeping and your lids are closed you are getting even less. this can lead to all sorts of problems. that being said, there are some contact lenses that are FDA approved for sleeping with although it is up to your eye doctor to decide whether you are a good candidate for that. Finally, in general the daily disposables and silicon hydrogels (a type of lens material) are the most expensive.

I just feel that this is wrong, thats all
