Having worn glasses since age 6, contacts were worn for a 10 year period, but I work in dusty environments. I returned to glasses, and recently decided to look into Lasik. Having had the surgery about one month before, the results are ASTOUNDING, or as a friend stated, "it's like getting out of jail". No dry eyes from smoke in bars, from drinking (who, me?), or working in the yard. WHAT A FREEDOM TO SEE!!
