Laser eye surgery

Postby faith177 » Mar 12th, 2018, 4:09 pm

Wondering if anyone has had this done with very bad eyes? I am around a -6.50-7 in both eyes with an astigmatism and wondering about prices and experiences. Thanks

My sister had it done and she is happy with the results. However...if you value your night vision, it could be effected.
Transport Canada will not issue a aviation medical to a person that has had it done.
Some would view my above politically incorrect opinions as 'harsh' and may even be offended by them...That should just about cover why some nations are laughing at how soft and weak we have become.

I had laser surgery to treat a retinal tear (in the hopes of preventing a full detachment). Worked like a charm, did not quite save 100% of my vision but pretty nearly and much better than the alternative. Took about ten minutes altogether, maybe five minutes or less of lazering. But I'm not quite brave enough to do it to improve vision.

-6.5 diopter is an easy fix for eye surgery and so long as your eyes are healthy, you should expect perfect results. Saying that, depending on your age, if you are over 40 you’d naturally be losing near-sightedness and may have some choices to make with your surgery. I had bad eyes 15 years ago and my eyes are still good today.
I do diligence and sometimes diligence does me.
