As stated in the thread Lies quoted, I had the surgery earlier this year. Mild discomfort the day of and clear vision the day after!

Expensive, but good investment.

Haha! Yes, that's how it was when I first got my glasses! Three years of awful near-sightedness and my parents could finally afford my glasses. I'm hoping it will be the same feeling when I can afford the surgery.

I've been thinking of LASIK for a while myself. A friend of mine got it, and she's been very happy with it.

I'm severely nearsighted (-11 on both sides) and astigmatic. It would be nice to be able to see the world without glasses, and have peripheral vision again.

A friend of mine told me that she considered getting this procedure done, until she heard that if you've had this surgery, and someone hits you in the right spot on your eye, the eye will burst or explode, or something like that. This, she said, is because the surgery thins the eyes, and makes them easier to damage. She emphasised that they have to hit you in the EXACT right spot, which she thought might happen while playing sport. I really don't know if this is true; I hope it's not.

I also don't know if it's true but I would think not.....

Yeah, but you can get a detatched retna from sports/other hard hits even without the surgery.
