Has anyone here had Lasik?

It's almost time for me to get new contacts, and my DH just said that if I wait for summer, I can get Lasik.  Have any of you had Lasik done?  Will I love it?  Hate it?  

I really want to have it done.....I honestly can't remember what it's like to open my eyes in the morning and see everything clearly.  I've had glasses and/or contacts since 4th grade.

My husband had it done in 2005. He had been wearing glasses since he was 5. Best thing he ever did.

OMG i know how you feel.  I have had glasses since 5th grade, and i got contacts in college.  I have been having infections constantly for the past year.  They changed my contacts brand 3X, and i still get them.  I am so tired of this crap!!  My sister had the lasik  last year, she loves it.  She can wake up and see.  

Are you considering it?   I am .  They have a place i called, and they do free consultations.

Are there any side affect? Was it hurt? Were you scared

I had it done 7 years ago, cost me $1800 per eye. Best money I ever spent. The more time goes by, the more I'm glad I did it. The actual surgery only lasts a few seconds per eye. I had it done in the morning, afterwards my vision was blurry (of course), but cleared up that night and almost perfect the next morning.

If you get the chance, do it. Don't go to the cheapest place, you don't want to mess with your eyes. They should include the consult, the surgery and your follow-up visit in the price. Make sure to use the eyedrops they give you afterwards in good faith and you'll be ditching those contacts in no time!

Do you have to use the drops the rest if your life or just for recovery?

I want to get it done. My vision isn't bad but it isn't great either. I don't wear my glasses i feel like i look stupid. I have needed them since 3rd grade. I would be afraid. Is there a chance theycould mess up and make you go blind?
