    If you move your eye the laser stops until you look back then the tracking picks your eye up and it begins again

    I've contemplated it, researched it, and decided against it.
    Well, you're operating on a healthy eye. If it could be guaranteed that it's 100% successful and will be perfect, then I'd do it. I'm not prepared to take the slightest risk with my eyes, any imperfection would drive me nuts, so I'm sticking with contacts. That said, I know quite a few people who've had it done, and it's been great for them.

    Oh well.............at least you won't see the shovel coming upside the head when she finally thinks to herself, 'Enough with the questions, already'.

    As soon as the doctors doing laser eye surgery have laser eye surgery, i'll consider it.

    ^ This.

    My prescription is -7, so I'm pretty blind, but my daily disposable contacts at 75p per pair sort me out for 20:20 vision. I can't see when I get out of bed at night - but then I don't put the light on, so no great loss!

    My sister had it done and loves it - her procedure involved using a scalpel to open the eye up and then laser to shape the lens. She said it was quite disturbing.

    My GP has had it done too and recommends it - maybe he's on commission

    I can't even wear contacts because I can't stand putting them in. Glasses, all the way, though surely they should be called something like plastic vision correcting devices these days, since they're not actually glass.

    A teacher I know had it done last year,said it was painless and hasn't looked back ( )

    I am short-sighted and I looked into it a couple of years ago but they said we can only correct your distance vision, but you will need glasses for reading, so I decided against it.
    There is a new procedure too that is more like a cataract operation where they dont shape your own lens,they take it out completely and put in a new one.

    Had mine done last March. Would definately recommend it. Occasionally I get dry eyes but optrex fixes this easily and it takes me slightly longer for my eyes to adjust to the light in the morning but the upside of never wearing distance glasses again far outways this.

    I am very squeamish but the drops mean you can't feel a thing. Make sure you have a driver for the day of the surgery and plan to sit in a dark room for the rest of the day as your eyes are extremely light sensitive. The next day though my eyes were perfect. you have 3 types of drops to take for a week or two but that is it.
