I find it interesting how many/most laser eye surgeons still wear glasses...

I heard that once u do the surgery, ur eyes can't focus for an extended period of time and they get dry easily. Reading becomes difficult. Any proof to what I've heard? Posted via RS Mobile
When I am reading a book for a while, and look up things aren't crisp and clear and are a bit blurry but nothing that would affect my quality of life.. This only lasts probably 5-10mins.. Weird thing is that it does not hapen when i am looking at the computer screen for a while..
I had prk done at london eye 2 years ago.
As for the surgeons wearing glasses, it is probably for reading, not for myopia or hyperopia
Coal Harbour. They'll pre-screen you to see if you're more suitable for Lasik or PRK. Cost for either PRK or Lasik was ~$2000-2500 a few years ago now.
If you're into contact sports or anything physical, you may want to consider PRK instead of Lasik.
Lasik cuts a flap which never truly fully heals (it can become dry - MUST remember to stick to the eyedrop routine they give you) and can be dislodged in contact sports.
PRK "shaves" off the top of the eye, so it does take a bit longer to "heal" the surface, and you'd have to wear these funky large contact lenses at night for... I think it's a few months, I'd have to ask my brother.
Both brothers and an ex had laser eye surgery done. One brother got PRK, the other got Lasik. My ex got Lasik.
I'd say get more info on what may be more suitable for you, and then find out which places specialize more towards one or the other.
I'll tell you now, Coal Harbour is one of the better ones for PRK, and is definitely no slouch with Lasik either.

I don't have an anger problem. I have an idiot problem.
my one friend went to a top of the line expensive ass doctor but ended up having some issues with sunlight. might have been his fault. he is fine now.
my other friend (well ex friend) went to a moderately proced doc on the cheap side and had NO issues. but shes a total piece of cunt so who knows.
point is, i think its very safe nowdays. if i were u id go with someone well reviewed but in the moderate vs high priced category. i dont think u need the guy who does henrik sedins eyes. just make sure to be careful afterwards (ie avoid sun) as i be most mishaps nowdays are the recipient's fault, not the doctor's Posted via RS Mobile
I did PRK at Coal Harbour and it took me 12 days before I could confidently drive again. I had crap vision from day 2 to day 11 (day 1 vision was great, but that was expected apparently)... then suddenly day 12 vision was BAM excellent.
