I wore glasses since I was 6 yo. I had both astigmatism and myopy (about 6.5 points on both eyes). A couple of years ago, I had laser surgery, and I can say it's the best thing I've done for myself in all my life.

The surgery was a complete wonder... It lasted less than 10 minutes, didn't hurt a bit, it didn't matter if I moved my eyes or my face, and I got out seeing more than I did when I got in. Absolutely incredible. Also, it cost about 1000 bucks, both eyes, all the pretests and postests included. The laser was preprogrammed, according to the test results, so the surgeon only watched and waited for the machine to complete the procedure (no risk of human failure).

That very night I was able to go to the movies. A week later I could even swim. It took about 5 months for my eyes to get full 20/20, but it's the expected recovery time (about 1 month per diopter).

I wore glasses for more than 20 years, and now I'm finally free (yeah, it sounds melodramatic, but it's the truth). The only thing I'm sorry about, is not having done it before. It has really changed my life.

If you are a moleman, like I was, don't overthink it. It's a wonder. Just go ahead and do it...
