It seems the worse off you are - vision wise - the BETTER the results are for your vision correction...
Looked into Lasik 2 years ago because I hate wearing glasses and cannot wear contacts anymore. I was cleared for surgery with the caveat that I would probably require more than one proceedure or possibly a different type of surgery altogether with a longer recovery period. However, regardless of the proceedure, I was going to need to wear glasses again within 5 years. At a minimum of $2K/eye, I couldn't justify the cost benefit for just 5 years. If I was 30, I would have definitely considered it, but at 40, it just seemed like a waste of money. I was definitely bummed about it. I hate wearing glasses all the time.
