Well, Larry, about 17 years ago my eye sight was 20/400 with astigmatism. I could work on very tiny things without magnification, BUT I couldn't see anything clearly 6 feet or farther away.
I checked it out with those who had had laser surgery done. they were satisfied. So am I. I have had NO problems. I do wear "Cheaters" for close up at a cost of 9.00 a pair instead of 400.00 for clear and sunglasses.
The proceedure took about 1 hour plus a hotel room so I could be checked in the morning. I get a checkup each year to make sure everything is still fine, at no cost.
For me, it was the way to go.
