Lasik eye Surgery

Ive have some question regarding the above surgery, i heard from some people that Lasik causes complications as you age? Is that true? Plus, if i were to go for the surgery, does that mean i can watch TV very close, read book in the dark all these doesn affect my vision any more?

Sorry, no experience yet.

Even if i have done lasik, no people who get old yet. A numbers of my friends went through it, at least they are feeling very great now without contact lens or spec.

since they are cutting the lense of your eyes, will people look at your eyes abit differently? as in like your eyes will look abit funny?

So true! And now can also see how I look when trying on various sunglasses!
And most importantly, I finally can see what I look like without my specs!

and can give reasons why they went for it?

and surely there must be some cons to it. only matter to the person if the pro outweigh the cons.

thats all the cons? besides the price thats all? nothing bad at all?

well...you need to apply eye drops every few hours for a while after the surgery (extra $$)
troublesome, but these are for recovery, so LL

and i think my face looks fatter w/o specs, but that one also LL
