    I want it. Bad. What is the worst that can happen? Just that it doesn't work and I have to go back to contacts or glasses...right?

    My ex girlfriend's brother in law had it done, did one eye at a time (in case of a problem you still have one eye) He was on his third procedure on the one eye when I broke up with her. He was in a lot of pain. That was 1999.

    I had it done. No problems now, but my eye flap would stay still and had to have contact lenses/permeable ones put one until they healed. drove home with my vision like the worst fog storm you ever drove thru. It was kind of "the fuck is going on". More to the story but i dont feel like typing.

    Co-worker had it done, multiple surgeries later, and he's had nothing but problems from it. He tells me his vision now is like looking through wax paper.

    I went with the interocular implants instead. I see colors much better now.

    The last eye doctor I saw told me to get it(was not a doctor who did the procedure BTW) because I can't read the big letter on the chart without glasses or contact lenses. I was told that I have cataracts forming and its diminishing my peripheral vision and Lasik would cure it, but I still have my doubts about the long-term side effects.

    I'd like your doctor's name please. :coffee:

    Friend of mine had it done, but then started having issues. They had to re-do the surgery, which involved putting a thread through each lid to prop the eye open for the second surgery. She still has small holes on both top and bottom lids, from having that done.

    I rather figure I'll be deaf and blind with dementia by the time I hit 70. WTF will I care anymore? Can't see or hear you, and wouldn't know you anyways if I could. Watch out for my drool and feed me soft food when you visit.

    The optometrist checked my prostate. He had one hand on each shoulder.
