Any big gun show will have both


And yes don't fear lasik, bst I've ever done....even with the flare. The hardest thing about it was waking up every morning for a month looking for my glasses then openin my eyes and realizing I didn't need them anymore. Also depth perception gets a little wonky because you don't have glasses on anymore.

Well the only thing I'm afraid of is when I get my bcg's in basic and not having bifocals...I've had them for 4 years already since the end of 8th grade

My son had it done 10 years ago. It was a simple, painless, procedure, over with in less than 30 minutes, and now he has 20/20 left and 20/15 right.
I had mine done a little over a year ago and I have 20/15 in both eyes. And my procedure only took less than 5 min. Crazy how much the technology has advance.

What kind of vision did you have without glasses before lasik?

And what kind and how long is the recovery?

I was nearsighted before LASIK. I couldn't see the tv 5 feet away it was that bad. The machine they used is one of the more advance ones now it's called the allegretto wave. I was able to see right after it was done. I didn't feel a thing while it was being done but afterwards it just feels like you have a scratch on your eye. Not painful just more like an irritant. That went away after a day or two and you just have to put eye drops in all the time to keep your eyes moist so they heal properly. The only thing I couldn't do was swimming for a few months but beside that I lived a normal day.

Well I fear LASIK. My philosophy is never have cosmetic surgery on a pristine cornea that's just too precious - so why take a chance when it's normally better to correct vision with glasses. And if something goes wrong most insurances will tell you to go spit since you chose to have elective and cosmetic surgery.

I have the 512 and the Aimpoint T1. I would choose the Aimpoint over and over. BUT, it's not the pro. Close quarters, eotech every time. But as far as flexibility goes, my Aimpoint 2moa takes the cake. So it comes down to what you are gonna do with it. With the PRO you also get night vision capability, so keep that in mind.

Quent,

Lasik is elective, but definitely not cosmetic. You end up with better vision, and no worry about losing/breaking etc your glasses.

Hernia repair is elective as well. you can wear a truss. But I chose not to, and I've never regretted it.

I know this is an optic thread, but I have to add:

I am astigmatic, I know it doesn't fix the astigmatism but will it correct for it? Also, I feel like I have worn glasses for so long they're a part of me. Me kids even tell me that I look better with my glasses .
