Default Laser Eye surgery?

Anyone here had laser lasik eye vision correction? Any first hand account of benifits or drawbacks?

I'm leaning toward getting the "procedure" as the spectacles are a problem for diving and other active sports. Contacts don't work for me, and I need a new avitar.

Maybe some other alternatives?

My friend was classed as "clinically blind" without her glasses, she had the surgery, went very well but did need to go back for a correction. She doesn't wear glasses or contacts any more, now has 20/20 vision. She was 38 I think when she had it done.

Never talked to anybody who had this done except for workers at the clinic.

Seems reasonably save, and considering the risks of falling off of a cliff because I can't see, I suppose it equals out.

Good to know even old people survive the "procedure"

I've not had a conoli, but I have had granola. Does a canoli have a hole in the middle? Does it come with cheese. I love donuts. I have used canola oil.
