I highly recommend reading the comments posted by readers of this article. There are a lot of unhappy patients posting comments, and the common theme is that they don't feel they were adequately informed.

If only the FDA and others in a position to make changes could read the reader comments and get a real idea of how many patients are being damaged by LASIK.

Thanks Archmage!

From the few comments I read that is attached to this article..I found it surprising alot older people had lasik done. For some reason I thought it was less common..

I am one of the older persons who had Lasik done. It destroyed my close vision. Before Lasik I could see very well close with my glasses on, except when I was extremely tired. And it was only slightly hard to focus. Then, I would simply take my glasses off for doing reading and close work.

My eyes worked wonderfully well before Lasik. I assumed my close vision after Lasik would be what it was with glasses on, but that is not the case. Besides being slightly overcorrected in one eye, Lasik (as well as contact lenses) effects refraction at the surface of the cornea, not in front of the cornea such as glasses do. Neither the flunkies at LasikPlus nor the surgeon? informed me of this effect in order to close the sale. Therefore, along with my slight overcorrection and my continuing presbyopia (that old age thing) my close vision is a real pain. I cannot see close clearly without reading glasses and must peek over the lenses if I want to see far away.

I don't have the time to list all the other problems and bad effects from Lasik, but even the intended effect of Lasik is pointless as far as enjoyment and functioning in life. For me, it took nearsightedness away to some degree and gave me many more problems, including vision, the health of my eyes and the health of my mental and physical well-being.
