a friend of mine just came over who had it done and just loves it. She went to a guy that uses the newest laser machine s3K or some such laser that can pace the eye a lot faster.
She had the temporary plugs put into her tear ducts initially till the eyes healed...she went to a guy that was conservative.
Her correction was a -7.5 with bad astigmatism and he told her right off the bat that it would require 2 surgeries as he didn't want to be too aggressive initially so healing would be better (he only charged one fee so it didn't matter, she could have re-do's for up to 2 years).
she loves it and would do it in a heart beat
I'm also on the verge of contemplation....even if I had to wear glasses if they weren't so thick and heavy, I'd be content.
Good luck. Keep us posted on what happens
