    Default Anyone had laser eye surgery?

    I've been toying with the idea for years but the idea of my eyes being sliced up is a little scary... being able to see is pretty important after all. I'd rather lose my legs or man-parts (or both!) than my eyes...

    I've been thinking of it too, I have to wear reading glasses now, which is an annoyance.
    Can they correct that with laser surgery?

    I can read news print six feet away, any closer and it blurs

    Yes, we've cover it before. There are basically two types of surgery. One done on the surface of the cornea and another that is done underneath a thin corneal flap.

    No.

    There are experimental techniques than can relieve the symptoms of presbyopia, but they aren't all that effective or long lasting.

    I'm sure there was a debate not too long back on this !?

    Personally I'd stick with being a speccy four eyes if it was me

    Yep, I’ll stick to being a four eyes too; really, specs are a very minor inconvenience, so it isn’t worth even a tiny risk to the eyes to get this surgery done.

    Both my brothers had it done years ago, they are both blind now. But that could be a coincidence.
