I was soooooo blind. The lasik completely changed my life! I have never been so happy. Whereas once i was blind, now i can see. Its the closest thing on this planet to a real-life miracle. There were no side-effects except slight starbursting around distant bright lights at night.
I have had my new eyes for 10+ years (believe it!) and they are as good as they were the day i walked out of the surgery. GO GET IT!
