    Had it done a few years ago. Best money I ever spent, and I'll probably have to spend it again. I got it done too early. Should have waited untill my late 20's, as now my sight is fading a bit. I an still see 20x better than before the surgery though

    i still think the procedure is not completely perfected yet, but i'll give it 8 more years before i get mine done....don't try to save your money on this by any means usually it ranges from 4-7K to have it done by a reputable specialist. Many still wear glasses at night due to blurry vision.

    I had it done years ago and it was a disaster.

    I won't go into details, it's not a time of my life I like to remember, but suffice to say I got many complications and the doctor refused admit anything was wrong and "dumped" me.

    My life was a nightmare for a year and I was lucky to find a benevolent doctor to fix me up.

    Did you know that the Lasik "success rate" is a bullshît statistic. After the operation I was in constant eye pain, had chronic dry eyes and had double vision out of one eye, but since I could (barely) read the 20/20 line on the doctors snellen chart, I was a success. NO mentions of my complications in my file.

    Check out those sites...

    Oh and it's been 3-4 years now and I'll be needing (very low power) glasses as my vision has faded a bit, and loss of contrast makes driving at dusk quite unpleasant.

    You only have 2 eyes... before you make any decisions research research research!

    i had a few days of horrible pain where it felt like i had an endless amount of sand in my eyes which sitll water everytime i think about it, but they said that reaction is rare. Other than that it is well worth it if you can round up the cash it takes. Went from 20-80 vision to 20-20
