I wore glasses or contacts since I was ten. I was 31 in 2008 when I decided to have LASIK.
The procedure itself was simple and easy. Some discomfort and dryness for a few weeks, then it didn't feel so bad. On a nice, clear day, my distance vision is amazing. MT corrected vision is 20/20 in each eye. Success story, if you ask the doctors.
At night, though, it's horrible. Headlights and traffic lights look like big blurry stars. That throws off my depth perception. Not good for driving!
Sometimes if I sleep on my side with any pressure on my eye area, I have blurry vision for a few hours when I wake. I'm worried about my vision getting worse as I age.
The LASIK clinic I used later went out of business. I don't know why but it makes me glad I didn't pay extra for the "lifetime" plan!
Once you have this surgery, you can't go back. It's depressing.
