I had lasik more than 10 years ago (can't remember exactly) and it was one of the best things I ever did for myself.
The pros are daily, I had a heavy script and I couldn't even find my glasses if I took them off and mislaid them.
The cons, well, the concern that it would go ok. I did a tremendous amount of research, chose my doctor carefully, etc. However, I couldn't ignore that some people have had terrible results/problems. Kathy Griffith, the comediene, is basically blind in one eye, she speaks of it on her website.
However, for a lot of reasons I trusted the opthamolgist and the next day when I woke up, I was seeing 20/20.
The only problem I have today is that I'm really not found of driving at night. It's hard to describe, my vision just isn't as good. I mean, I do drive at night when I have somewhere to go, and I don't feel unsafe, it's just not the same as during the day. Driving on overcast, cloudy days ditto. Just off somehow.
When I first got it done, I had to increase the size of everything on my computer for about a week, then could put it back. Your eyes are just adjusting.
One time, within the first month, I guess I had a rough day anyway, but I had this headache, my eyes felt grainy, I felt like I couldn't focus well either close or far. I remember getting home, not comfortable watching TV, or reading, or bright lights, and I put my head back I the couch and thought "Oh no, did I make a mistake?"
I went to bed, got a good nights sleep and when I woke up everthing was fine.
I can read fine with no assistance, like contracts or papers at work. However, if I'm going to be sitting and reading for pleasure for a couple of hours, I use a pair of the lowest power non-perscription glasses, like you can get at the drug store.
I have a question for you questioner....How old are you?
You should get lasik done when you passed a certain age, when your eyes aren't changing much anymore.
It's important to remember that lasik puts your vision back, but it's not going to stop the process of aging.
If your perscription changes every year, than this isn't the time to do it.
Unless you don't mind glasses, and just want to get back to square one.
