    I had my eyes done a little over a year ago. Best money I ever spent. I didn't have Lasik though, I had PRK instead. Its a older technique that involves nothing but laser. No cutting what-so-ever. The only downside to PRK compared to Lasik is that PRK has a longer recovery time.

    They stick these little clamps in your eye lids to keep them open. It's kinds Clock Work Orangeish that way.

    I'm dying to have this done!

    But I'm afraid I'll be the one guy in a billion whose eyes get fukked up for life.

    What kind of cha-ching does this procedure end up runnin' ya?

    I'm not worried about the doctor messing up, but I'm worried that I'll drop a chunk of change, it'll be wonderful - no more glasses - then I'll get hit in the eye with some object that my glasses would've stopped and be blinded!

    $2500.00 . I would spend double knowing the results. My eyes are now 20/20 and the Doctor said they will improve even more up to a month post surgery . It was freaky and nothing like I have ever experienced before . My wife watched it on video and said it was wild . The insane thing was watching her brush my eyes and not feel it . Whoa ! I recommend this procedure to anyone that has contacs or glasses .

    Does it last a lifetime and if not can they zap them again if your eyesight gets bad when you're older?

    I asked my eye dr. about this a few years back, at that time he said they could only do it once. Maybe it's changed now I don't know?

    P.S. Anyone want to borrow me $2500 ?

    My doc told me they can do adjustments down the road if I need . It's not as detailed as the Lasik procedure though . I'm tellin' ya , it's worth it .

    The only downfalls that I've heard of is a loss in night vision. Is this true? I'd love to have it done myself, but I heard this last spring, and decided to wait a bit. What do you guys think?
