  • my husband did it and it was great for him... he did the PRK procedure because he's in the army (as opposed to lasik)... it was a slightly longer healing time but its supposed to maintain the structure of your eye better.
    his vision is 20/20 still after 4 years (it was better than 20/20 at first actually)

  • My SIL got it about 10 years ago with lifetime free adjustments. Ever 3 years she gets it done again. Dosnt sound good to me. I wouldnt get it because there are NO long term studys on the side effects of it. What if after 30 years you go blind from having it? Id rather wear glasses. I guess it depends on how bad your eyes are to begin with on how well it turns out or dosnt.
