I heard that at nighttime stop lights will %+!@ it up or it'll be different without havin Lasik. Blurry-wise.

I asked my doctor if I should get Lasik but she said if I do since I'm near sighted, that I will end up sacrificing my close vision forcin me to read withGLASSES by the time I'm 40. I thought Lasik was a long term cure...but unless someone could prove her wrong I'll reconsider.

I would just consult a dr. It has it advantages but it is unlikely that it will last you forever.

My girlfriend used to be blind as a bat but she got Lasik back in November and has 20/20 now. She's only been back for one check-up. There are SOME caseswhere you shouldn't, like if you have an astigmatism, like myself, then it won't fix that because you're eyeball is just misshapen.

i hear that it's best to wait until you're at least 40.

my eyes are majorly messed up and get much worse each time i go in for checkups, but i'm just gonna wait it out before i pursue surgery.

hell, i may never get the surgery. i think my glasses look pretty snazzy..

my vision actually has been getting worse since i began wearing glasses about 5 or 6 years ago in 4th grade.

But one of my teachers got eye surgery so he wouldn't need glasses, he has to go get a monthly check up and if he gets hit in the eye or any noticeablecontact, you have to go to the doctor or you might get blind from that eye
