Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Well after finding out that my cornea is only thick enough for one lasik procedure and no enhancements, I'm pretty put-off by the idea. I've been doing a lot of research and it seems the risks are pretty big and no one really knows what happens to you in the long run. Might be great if you are a prime candidate with a thick cornea, low scrip and small pupils, but since I'm fuctioning well in contacts I can't see the risk being worth the gain for me at this time. If they screw up, which there's a good chance since I have a high myopia, I can't have it done again and since the corea will be flattened I can't wear just any contacts again and would have to get special ones. My pupils are large which gives me a good chance of never seeing well enough to drive in the dark again. Doesn't sound like the miracle it's touted to be! I've been reading a lot of boards and sites from people who had complications and when it's bad, it's really bad. Even if it's a small percentage, that wouldn't matter to me if I was one of them. I hope in five or ten years they've got it down good.

Anyone else look into lasik and decide against it?
