I can wear my glasses, contacts any time i want with no loss of vision. I can buy a new prescription with brand new glasses for a fourth(or less) of the cost of lasik. I guess for me, the thought of having my vision permanently disabled because my lense doesnt heal back properly after they slice it open, or they mess up some terrible way it enough to keep me using the non-surgical routes. I'm a developer, if i lose my eye site, i lose my job. Not worth the risk.
