Hi Everyone-

I am considering Lasik (I have an appointment for my evaluation scheduled for next week). Please provide your thoughts. I have read a lot of Negative / Positive feedback (more positive prior to visiting this site which is making me nervous now about getting it done). My prescription is fairly high ( -8.00 in both eyes, w/ a Astigmatism in my Right eye, and very little in my Left) – which has me wondering if I should even bother I know they can’t correct 100%.
How safe is it, are there any long term side effects that anyone is aware of? I did read that no one has ever become blind, which is one of my main concerns.
I already experience dry eye; I work on a computer all day long so my eyes become extremely dry during the day. By 5 p.m. I just want to get home and remove my contacts b/c of the fatigue / dry eye I feel when wearing them. I am just tired of my contact / glasses. I have been wearing glasses since I was 6 years old and kind of fed up. With my Astigmatism in my right eye I can never see “perfect,” unless I switch back to Gas permeable which is not in the books (too uncomfortable).
I have always considered Lasik, but never could afford it until now.
Thanks in Advance!
