I had it done 5 years ago and I love it. No more foggy glasses while trying to shoot.

Its a pretty easy procedure but if you are worried then I'd stick with a real doctor that is associated with a hospital. They aren't going to let some quack with a certificate in that got their lasik machine off of ebay. I had Stewart Shofner do mine. I don't know where he is now but he was associated with Baptist. Jeffrey Horn is another good one. He used to be associated with Vanderbilt. I don't know if he still is.

Thought about doing it but afraid of the problem of blinding lights in the dark. I work driving at night and would hate to have that complication. Let me hear your experiences with this.

With all the testing they did on me, they can give you percentages for probabilty for certain side effects. Certainly they can guarantee nothing. But they also told me that they turn away as many people as the do the procedures on. Where I went, if they don't think you will have a very good outcome they won't perform the surgery.

Personally I have had zero effects other than being able to see like a HAWK!!!!

Ditto, I paid $1600 or $1700 total on special. DR. Colby Stewart. TNlasik has a website.

I would have paid $5000 if I had known it would be this good.

I had just slight haziness with lights at night for about 6 months, but it clearup up.

My last eye exam I read EVERY LETTER ON THE BOTTOM LINE of the eye chart with no glasses.

My only regret is that I waited so long before having it done. Now I'm in my mid-50s and need reading glasses for anything within arm's length. I can follow a blood trail if the drops are pretty clear, I have to carry glasses for those tiny drops on red and yellow leaves that you have to hold up to see if it's really blood.
