Have any of you geekzoners had this done or thought about it?
I opted for it when I was 22, back in 1992/1993. I can't remember how short-sighted I was, but I couldn't focus on anything more than about six inches away.
At that time, there was only one clinic in NZ doing this (in Auckland). I got a procedure called Photo refractive keratectomy which was the only one available then. This was years before LASEK came along.
I'll be 44 this month and my vision is still pretty good. I have not worn prescription glasses since the surgery.
