If healing time were not an issue and you had a choice between lasik or epi-lasik which one would you choose?

Epi-Lasik. Wish I had it to do all over again.

Thanks JPD. Did you have epi-lasik? Saw your previous posts and concerns noted still after 3 months. How are you doing now?

JPD - sorry to hear there's no improvement. Hope it goes well with your continued follow-up. The way I'm digesting all of this issue / risk is that this is my chance to get out of glasses or contacts with minimal risk of losing my vision entirely. Primarily, the worst case is still having to wear glasses. Thankfully, the cost of surgery has come down considerably and techniques are pretty well practiced. For those reasons, felt it's time to take the leap and have more freedom.

Wish you well.
