Thats the problem, Im afraid. Alot of folks have it done, and everythigns fine....others have it done and its a major nightmare...most fall in the middle, I expect. A little glare, some sensativity, some dryness, but worth it to be free of glasses and contacts. I was told that I should have had PRK, not LASIK...after the fact by my original cutter.... this of course based on the complications I had..not the original diagnoses....which after reading others stories of their evals now seems hurried and somewhat lacking in both the depth and the warmth of theirs. If you are considering this type of surgury...get several opinions, get evaled by a few docs (even if you have to pay for them), and definately think twice. You may be fine, or, you may not be...once its done, there is no going back.... Sometimes, its worth it to me..othertimes...it wasnt. Everyones different, so get as wide an experience base as you can looking at you...and definately check out those websites.... I wish I had before I got it done...probably still would have done it (this is me), but then again...maybe not. Good luck.
