My main problem was a little farsighted and astigmatism. I had worn mono gas permable contact lens for many years. I had momo lasik surgery 9-5-02, after the surgery I could not see 3 ft in front of me. The doctor really messed my eyes up. I had two enhancements, one on 3-27-03 and the other 6-13-03. In which my left eye became my dominate eye for distance and the right eye for reading. Since then I now wear contact lense again and the optometrist has changed my dominate eye back to my right eye for distance and my left eye for reading. I am not seeing perfect now but I can live with it. I WOULD NOT HAVE HAD LASIK HAD I KNOWN I WOULD END UP WORSE THAN WHEN I STARTED.

Have never wanted to take a chance and have someone laser my eyes. It's irreversible, and still too chancy.
