    Right is 20/20 and left is 20/30 plus most of the near vision I lost right after the initial procedure has come back. I'm just getting the left tweaked.


    :nooo:

    I'll have to do that in a couple of years. When talking to doc before original surgery 10 or so years ago he said in my 40's I'd probably need to re-do. Be nice if by then the technology got to the point that I had the 20/20 and 20/15 vision of the first procedure, plus the near vision I had prior to having anything done.

    Do they just do the bikini line or is a full Brazilian thing?

    I just had mine done last year and the nailed my right eye but just missed on the left. I woulda had it tweaked sooner but I've been busy with side jobs and am just comfortable enough to take a week off. :woot:

    So have things progressed any further that you don't sacrifice near-vision for the gains made in far?

    I don't know what normally happens. I was told my near would suffer and it did. Over about 3 months though it bounced back. Not quite as good as it was pre LASIK but I rarely need my granny glasses now.

    I was told that I'm not a good candidate for LASIK due to my astigmatism. I was pissed :argh:

    Same. But then I was all "wgas/Wgaf". I've been blind forever. All is good. :cool:
