I just tried to find it, but I vaguely recall a news item in the last year or so that one of the people involved in "inventing" Lasik is now back-pedalling on how good it actually is. I did a Google news search and couldn't find it though. Does anyone remember what I'm talking about? I think this may have been it.
I know three people personally and one famous person (Adam Clayton, bassist for U2) who have had it done. All of them now have nightblindness and cannot drive at night. I believe Kathy Griffin has also had a really bad experience with it. That's plenty of anecdotal evidence for me to stay happy with my glasses and contacts. Despite the number of positives I hear, any chance that it'll leave me worse off isn't worth it to me.
