Lasik

To have or not to have?

Discuss. What are the success/horror stories?

While we were falling asleep last night, Todd suggested out of the blue that I do it. And truthfully, the thought of living in a world of no glasses or contacts even if it's just for a few years is amazing to consider.

But I need some wonderful testimonials from people I know before I even make a consultation appointment.

I'm needy like that.

sorry, but i have no experience in this area. however, i think glasses are great! LOVE 'EM! especially these days, when they are so cool!

i say, spend your lasik money on several pairs of glasses instead. one for each outfit! :)

I think you already know our views on this one. But, DO IT! (and Todd gets massive props for suggesting it in my book) Dan still wakes up each morning grateful for the miracle of Lasik.

A friend of mine had the procedure years ago and said her only regret was that she hadn't done it sooner.

I dream and dream and dream of having it done. To be able to just go to bed, without taking out contacts. To be able to wake up in the morning and be able to see the clock clearly. Yes, I dream. Go for it! Janine just had it done. Talk to her.

LASIK changed my life. LASIK eye surgery, is a way to restore or enhance the quality of life—regardless of the reason. I had it done from Columbia Laser Vision Correction, they has a team of experienced eye surgeons with over 15 years of expertise serving.

I think Lasik would be wonderful, but I'd be just a little sad if you didn't get to wear awesome colored contacts anymore.

So I do know someone that was under the laser just long enough to permanently damage his eye. He is double visioned now. Not the best story, but you wanted good and bad. I think these cases are really rare, but they do exist! Statistically, you are probably safe, so I guess it depends on how much you are put out or off by glasses every day. Good Luck!
