Like any other surgery, there are risks. Both of my brothers got this surgery, and they see perfectly now.
I have glasses, and I hate them. So I got contacts. If the only reason was because I didn`t like how glasses looked on me, I wouldn`t get surgery. That`s why contacts are good. :-)
He is entitles to his opinion, but it doesn`t do a fat load of good to the people who have been maimed, wounded and crippled by this surgery. You are simply saying those things because yours turned out okay.
My friend is blind because of Lasik.
Never see his wife`s or children`s faces again, never drive, no sunsets...nothing.
He is very intelligent and researched the hell out of the surgery. He got referrals, called the CMA, the BBB, and it still went horribly, tragically wrong. Read some of the other stories on these websites.
It`s fine that your surgery turned out `perfectly`. You are the exception to the rule.
Try to be a tad more empathetic, hmmm?
I now have a pair of ultralight memory metal glasses, which i can wear even while im asleep ( yep happens quite often, I forget im wearing them :P). I can completeley distort the frames and they spring back to the shape they should be.
And I had 20/600 eyesight. That`s effectively blind. Couldn`t drive a car, read a book, watch TV, hell, even recognize a person across the room without my glasses.
Now? No glasses. I can count the antennae on top of the mountains. Perfect vision.
OF COURSE THERE ARE RISKS. The cut a flap out of your eye, fold it back, then BURN OFF PART OF YOUR CORNEA. You can actually smell the flesh burning.
It`s surgery, not eye drops. There is risk involved. I think the reward outweighs it.
