Tom Sandoval has been sporting glasses and contacts over the years while starring on Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules” star and now the reality star is undergoing a vision makeover.

For Tom, he feels like contact lenses are “very annoying” and his busy travel schedule makes managing them difficult. “I just want to get up in the morning and feel like I’m good to go,” he says. “When you can’t see as well, you feel like your world is smaller. I’m just looking forward to expanding my world.”

The Doctors sent Tom to ophthalmologist and Lasik surgeon Brian S. Boxer Wachler, who says that the reality star is great candidate for the surgery.
