I am pretty much against any type of unnecessary surgery (especially for something as sensitive/important/precious as the eyes).

LASIK has serious complications so it’s not something I ever seriously considered, especially after I:

(1) noticed a newspaper article on a LASIK surgeon smiling and posing next to the machine, while he was wearing glasses (I don’t know if that’s more twisted or ironic),

(2) read/heard about many people still needing glasses/contacts after their original LASIK surgery.

For more info, you can check out these informative websites on some of the risks and long-term consequences from LASIK.

    thanks for the sharing the other side of lasik and other alternatives, you definitely need to be informed before making a decision one way the the other!
