      This.
      Glasses just work. They're a pain in the ass, but they work.
      Eye surgery has a non-zero chance of something going wrong.

      Also, friends that have had eye surgeries, more than 0 have reported some sort of post-operation complication: stars / dazzle effect in one eye at night, eye tear too much, eye too dry.

        The starburst lasts differently on different people, some chance of it being permanent but for the few months it existed for me it was a big stepup from the astigmatism halo. Your night vision tanks for a bit as well, the dryness/itch is just the effect of your eye healing. Use the drops they give you often and liberally, don't let the $30 refill charge spook you over the few grand you spent on your eyes. The grit/dry/itch goes away once the eye is healed after a while and it's really dependent on how often you apply the drops and use of regular eye drops, don't rub them.

          a lot of places will do it within a year. you'd probably have to pay for an insurance type thing to get touchups later in life. but, depending on how long you plan to live, it would probably be worth doing. practically everyone becomes farsighted as they get older.

          • 4 weeks ago

            That's still not 5 years, my eyes were great 1 year after the surgery.

            And remember this was 20 years ago. Whatever deals or hooks or enticements or warranties you see today did not exist back then. Nobody did touchups, nobody had guarantees, nobody had deals. Nobody had incentives as there was no competition, these places had lines months long back then and they all banked on reputation alone. The more successful surgeries they had under their belt, the bigger the lines got. I had to sign a stack of terrifying waivers absolving them of any possible liability, spelled out in detail line by line listing each way my eyes could be permanently damaged.

            The touchups you're talking about are short term meant to correct slight errors during the surgery. That would certainly be a nice safety net to have so you have a better chance at excellent vision afterwards but it does not stop your eyes naturally decaying, as they will continue to do.

            Youre supposed to only get lasik after your eyesight degradation stabilizes. If you get it too early it will get worse over the years

            It always gets worse over the years, your eyes are going to do genetically what they're predisposed to do, Lasik doesn't stop it. The best you can do is not torture your eyes in front of a monitor after getting lasik. People whose lasik lasts a decade or more are lucky, people like me whose eyes change rapidly are unlucky. That's why glasses are the goat, you can always change them without much expense.

              i have no clue who you are or how long ago you got lasik, anon. yeah, technology has gotten better in two decades. you can do lasik on someone intentionally moving their eyes around, the computer will just shoot the beam when the eyes are lined up. the human doesn't do anything, it's not like he's tapping the tapping the shoot button, it's more like a cnc router for your cornea. lasik and PRK are nuts now.

              >The touchups you're talking about are short term meant to correct slight errors during the surgery.
              the 6 month one is yeah. if you cough up the money for a lifetime plan (i have no idea if it's worth doing, but it might be), then when your eyes get worse they'll zap em again. maybe that's not worth doing, you can always get lenses implanted.

    To all the bean brains here. Your eyes are lens, lack if clarity and focus is caused by lens irregularities. These can be shape and surface related, but typically vision irregularities are caused by your eyes not being the optimal shape. Lasik fixes issues by removing the top layer of your eyes and them placing a new correct lens on top. As you age your eyes will change. They may shrink or you may have worse issues like surface scarring (go scratch a pair of glasses and then put them on), or you might have the capillaries in the back of your eyes burst or bleed leading to light being blocked from reaching your optical nerve. All of these have had a wide variety of treatments to address them, but be aware, scarring on the eye remains the worst thing you can do to your eyes. LASIK by nature can lead to scarring, but is largely prevented thanks to the use of the laser which cuts a perfect flat uniform cut, compared to the crazy ass Ruskies who used to do it by hand with scaples which lead to microscarring that 20 years later would result in near blindness. Back of the eye bleeding has been fixed using lasers to cauterize the bleeding. But scarring remains the worst. Beware surgeries that cut your eyes, and remember glasses are cheap and easy, or if you wish to go for a semi permanent option you can use gas permeable rigid contacts that temporarily mold your eyes at night and last through the day.

      The scarring is the main reason they've switched from lasik to PRK and whatever the newer one is, no cutting flaps, just lasers. There are still places that offer lasik but the newer methods are more prevalent and more recommended. Though if you said PRK less people would know what you mean, same reason Kleenex is synonymous for tissue.

        I thought PRK was the older method that took longer to recover, but was also more resistant to shocks and such?

          yeah. in order to shoot the laser into your eye, it needs a flat surface. if you shoot the beam through a curved surface, it will bend the light and not hit where it's meant to. with PRK they effectively squeeze down the surface of your eye to make a flat surface to lase through. downside is that it takes like week or longer until you can function properly.
          lasik, they cut a flap and lift the front of your eye out of the way, and lase through that flat surface. then they just seat the flap back and you're good. you can see normally in a day or two. however, you also have a flap in your eye forever.
          that's literally the only benefit. a couple of days without sight vs a week without sight.
