I didn't have the Lasik procedure done, but a similar laser surgery here in Canada where the eye isn't cut (thus called no-touch). Much the same as Lasik and the results are fabulous. Had only my right eye done to see for distance and still maintain my reading vision in my left. Sounds weird I know, but the best of both worlds for sure!
It was done 5 years ago and still going strong. I am starting to lose my reading vision in my left eye as I'm 51, so considering having the left eye done and then just buying really nice reading glasses :)
