Laser Eye Surgery

I had been considering laser eye surgery but now I don't know. I was watching this commercial that I had seen many times, just didn't pay much attention to it, when something they said stood out. They said they have done over 2.2 millions surgeries and helped over a million people. So they only can help about half the people they treat. With those odds that makes me question if its worth the risk.

Have you or someone you know had this done? Did it help, hurt or did nothing for them? Think its worth the risk? Thoughts?

It's a higher risk when older.

That said two of my closest friend got the surgery while they were in their mid-20s and they believe it is one of the best investment they ever did. They did not have any issues after the surgery, either.

My husbands uncle had it done a long time ago, 15 years, and he went blind. I was hoping they had become better at it by now.
