Comments: LASIK UPDATE

I was thinking of getting Lasik done, but you are the third person I have heard was not 100% happy with it. I will use my money and begin my gun collection while I still can.

You're not the wet blanket with babymaking! I have The Bad Seed for a first child! I'm the wet blanket!

I have been urged by many people to get lasik, but I haven't because the doctor told me that even if I get it, I would still have to wear contact/glasses, just not as strong. (I am at minus 9.5) Like you said, what is the point?

They only way I could justify it is to save money, but if you still have to wear some corrective lenses, that goes out the window.

Hmm... I guess the real question is: Can you shoot well without the glasses? ;-)

Ooh, Kannie, good question. I seem to be doing OK in the shooting department. But my shots typically land about 2 inches northeast of where I aim, so maybe my eyeballs are the problem. Yeah...let's blame my vision...

Thank you for your honest feedback on Lasik. Befor this, I had heard nothing but great reviews about it. It was good to hear another perspective. And I think I will hold off on having it. (Besides, I am too chicken to get it done anyway. :)

I've been told that if I had it done, I would likely still need glasses for reading. If I could shoot and ride turret without glasses, I would take that in a heartbeat. Glasses on deployment are a major hassle and occasionally an impediment to warfighting.
