Mine were -5.75 and my husband's eyes were -3. We had ours done in December of 2007 and it was one of the best things I've ever done! Our eyes have been perfect ever since. No more hassle, no more not being able to see in the middle of the night, no more irritated eyes at the end of the day. The best part is that I can see stuff I was never able to see even with glasses or contacts. I live by mountains were I couldn't see the texture in the rock, and now I can see it clearly.
If you do it, I would suggest two things:
1) Make sure you get a blade-less procedure, because it's much more precise, has little room for human error, and the healing time (especially haloing) is much faster.
2) Research your doctor. Don't ever go for discount LASIK. Always choose someone who has done lots and lots of procedures and has a good reputation. When I was searching for my doctor, he had already done 40,000 procedures.
