I had Lasik done in 2010 and it was the best thing I've ever done for myself. It really changed my life; it has been so great to not wear contacts anymore. I used to get eye infections easily and was always bothered by contacts, and glasses were even worse for me. Such a nuisance! I don't have to worry about that anymore thankfully. The Lasik actually corrected my vision to better than perfect. It's 20/15 now. I'm amazed with the detail I can see from so far away. I haven't had any adverse reactions. I had the typical glares and sensitivity to light for the first few weeks but it went away and everything has been perfect since. I know that doesn't happen for everyone, though.
Now, the actual Lasik procedure I will admit I don't think I would go through again... That's saying a lot considering I'd go through childbirth again before Lasik. I can get free touch-ups for life from the place I had it done at, but I don't know if I'd utilize it! I don't think the level of pain I felt while recovering right after the surgery was normal, though. So I don't want to scare anyone out of it. My eyes were really sensitive to having been cut.
