      My Mum is an Optician. I am 25 and short sighted, its something I have wanted to get done for quite a while.

      At 21, your probably a bit young, they need a stable record of perscriptions for you, because your eyes might still be changing, they may not be able to do it, or the best possible job.

      Another note that my Mum said to me, which gave me a moment of pause, there has been no long term research into the procedure. No-one knows what will happen 30, 40, 50 etc years after the operation.

      but on a good note, they rarely screw it up

          Same here - wear contacts, and for the same reasons as your mum has mentioned (The people who have had laser done have not got to the age when they have cataracts etc yet so we don't know what the end result will be)

          Oh and I know a guy who had laser surgery 10yrs ago who needs it again now....

                  I hope it doesn't mean that.

                  It just means that no-one knows what long term effects on the eye are. The procedure has been around 15ish years, but thats hardly a lifetime.

                      if your eyes are bad it dont correct them fully ?? Gfs eyes are quite bad and she wanted it done the optition said she wud still need glasses. obviously wouldnt be as bad as they are now but Shes happy with contacts at the moment. Shes nearly 22 now so i think she may consider it in a few yeears.

                        my eyes are pretty bad too but I was given the choice by my optician and I weighed up the pros cons and I said i can live with it as it is... I wear contact lenses and will do for as long as i can manage to put them in and take em out.

                        Your too young atm... wait a while... it might not bother u so much as u get on with life.

                          I wear monthly contact lenses... they have tiny holes in... enables them to be worn solid for a month. Sleep in them, shower etc, honestly, you don't know you are wearing them.

                          Then at the end of the month, take them out and pop some new ones in.

                            I had one eye done 9 years ago, when the treatment was still quite new. I needed glasses, but whichever frames I tried on none seemed to suit me, so I took the plunge.

                            The procedure only lasted about 20 seconds, and then for day its quite sore. But straight away you can see the improvements. Incredible. Even now it still amazes me, especially if I'm up hiking in the mountains.

                            Not sure about long term, but certainly so far the only slight side effects I get, is the eye is sore first thing I'm really knackered/hungover first thing....

                              Everyone I've ever known had it done, absolutely swears by it. I think you have to have it done every few years though. Think about that, youngster!
