Lasik QuestionContributors to this thread:
Saw this warning from an FDA Adviser
I had it done in 2004... best money I ever spent
I read this yesterday .... 10-30% of those that have it done have some kind of on going vision problems afterwards, there is no going back if it screws up your eyes... you only have one set and is why I stick with contacts .......
JTV... it’s the reason I’ve not had LASIK surgery. I’ll just wear contacts, and not take any chances.
dagaboy x2. Best $3500 I've ever spent. I see 20/15 and the entire procedure took less than 10 minutes. It's down to a science at this point and the margin of error seems mighty slim.
I think that`s the point of the thread...."10-30% post surgery problems" doesn`t fall into the "mighty slim" category....especially when it comes to your eyes....lol
I had it done in 2000 and it took me to 20/15 19 years later I'm 20/20 . doc said because i refused the valium drug to relax me i shouldn't move at all during the procedure. no problem doc I'm not moving a muscle. wife and two friends also great results with same doc. a year later he gets shut down for law suits against him. i think it is a personal thing of how good a doctor is in figuring out if your eyes are a good candidate to be fixed. my laser was 15 seconds my wife 55 seconds to correct she was 20/25 after laser and 19 years later wears contacts to get her back to 20/20. just depends on how bad your vision is and if you have stigmatism in your eyes. pick out a good doc and go for it.
