I had it done in Japan, and instead of giving you Valium they have a young female nurse hold your hands
The actual procedure was interesting, but I was nervous about accidentally moving my eye to look at the interesting pattern of flashes (although I know it compensates for movement).
My vision was amaaazing for about a week, but then I started to get really dry eyes.
Now 3 years later my vision is apparently good in focus, but it is usually blurry because my eyes are so dry.
Drops only help for about 5sec.
So it is nice to be able to work etc without glasses/contacts, but at night my vision is terribly blurry unless I can keep my eyes moist.
Make sure you don't have any possible issue with dry eyes before you consider LASIK!
