in reply to The state of my vision

I had LASIK done 15 months ago. My left eye is textbook 0/0 correction, with 20/15 acuity (much better than I could ever get with glasses), while my right eye remains about 0.75 diopter nearsighted (0 astigmatism), giving me a built-in "reading glasses" eye for when my lenses start hardening up with age.

The surgery was painless, the recovery quick (I could see well enough to get a "OK to drive without glasses" card the next morning), and I've been happy ever since.

And as the facts at the link state, I was 8 diopters nearsighted, with 2 additional astigmatism in both eyes. This means I couldn't see anything more than two inches away, and I'd been that way since age 7.

Amazing stuff. I'd recommend it to anyone that they allow.
