I had it done a good 5 years ago, and so did my uncle. Well worth it.

Yes you could go blind if it is done wrong, that is why it is important that you do not go to the "$500 Special" place you see advertised in magazines or billboards. You need to check it out yourself and get a decent referrel that will let you know if you are truly fit for it or not (some people are not suited for Lasic due to eye shape, corneal thickness, perscription instability, Iris size or other factors. The place you want to go to is the one that will say "no" if you are not suited to doing so).

It is an ookey feeling, and the first few days/weeks/months have their phases. But being without glasses for, geez, I think about 8 years now has been great!.
