I would recommend not going through with Lasik unless you are prepared to deal with a less than optimum outcome. Based on what I had read, I believed that there was less than a 1% chance of dissatisfaction and I was willing to accept those statistics. There may have been a 1% chance but if you are a member of that 1% you will be 100% dissatisfied. I think the statistics are inaccurate, anyway. When the foxes are guarding the hen house, so to speak, it's hard to get an objective, accurate assessment of the likelihood of Lasik success.
Once a mistake has occurred, it may be possible to correct it, but it may not. I was called an ideal candidate. I had mild myopia in both eyes, moderate astigmatism in my right eye and.............I've grown tired of this. I usually do when I write something that seems tedious. As I stare at the computer screen from a seriously screwed up left eye, I am filled with rage that seeks an outlet. What that outlet will be is hard to figure at this point. I will probably internalize it as I usually do and die a little bit more every day in every way.
When I look through a hole I have created with my curled index finger, what I am looking at on the computer screen becomes bolder and clearer. I believe that is the kind of correction that should have resulted from the LASIK SURGERY, itself!! Thank doc. For nothing.
