I had lasik done years ago, so did my wife. Both of us had 20/20 vision the next morning. Even better a couple weeks later. I had astigmatism but she didn't.
It's been at least 17 years since we had it done. My vision is still perfect. Allison needs glasses for night driving(depth perception) but she had problems with that before surgery.
It was well worth it, but I would follow the surgeons advice If they say you aren't a good candidate, there's a lot of experience behind that opinion.
I read a couple responses on cheaper places to get it done. This is one of those things you want quality over price
. It's your eyes, spend the extra on a reputable place.
