    Default LASIK Risks and Benefits

    I want to share this article that I read about Lasik.Since Im also planning to undergo in the near future. Hope this one will to give more knowledge about Lasik. Most patients are extremely pleased with their LASIK results. LASIK eye surgery benefits include improved visual activity, freedom from corrective eyewear, and possibly new career opportunities. Patients who achieve a successful LASIK outcome can eliminate their need for glasses or contact lenses, and enjoy the freedom of clear vision at all times. Patients can play sports, swim, spend a day at the beach, and participate in various activities without the restrictions that glasses and contacts bring. LASIK eye surgery is a safe and effective treatment that has continued to gain popularity among patients.
    As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with LASIK, but in the hands of a highly skilled and experienced surgeon, LASIK is a particularly safe and reliable procedure. Nevertheless, you should talk with your surgeon about any risks associated with the procedure, as well as all the benefits.

    I think .long term risks are not yet known. I suspect eventually your vision might get even worse than before and you might get some more vision problems. We will see in about 15 years or so.

    Funny I thought you were going to tout the latest side effect warning the FDA now requires for Lasik candidates.

    Lisik can induce suicide.

    The plan to go for Lasik actually saved my father's vision. When he went to the doctor to say that he wanted it, they found a hole in his retina. He had to get it fixed before they would do the Lasik. He's now rethinking the Lasik, not for any of the reasons you guys talked about, it's just now that the surgery is freaking him out.

    I had Lasik over two years ago and don't regret it.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
