I am so happy for you!
My entire family has gotten lasik and they are loving life. It is so much easier to be active, esp for skiing and windsurfing.
I guess the "paraopt" as she said above is that there are risks to all surgeries, but for well over the majority of people are completely fine and change their lives for the better! I am sure people who have poor eyesight have to weight the risks to decide on lasik but for my active family and friends who have done it, it has been a very freeing experience.
YIPPIE so happy for you!

ETA: Hahahaa, D, I hear that! Luckily I'm doing it thru my pre-tax expense account, so it's coming right out of my paycheck each month and (hopefully) I'll barely miss the money!

I am 4 years post surgery and everything is perfect. I'll take reading glasses in 10 years over my legally blind status before the surgery anyday.

I agree, Rachel, you are too funny. Gotta run, I'm off to feed my sled dogs, gotta get them ready for the trip home, lol.
