    i'm curious about it also, but my eyes aren't that bad and its expensive...

    Enter this site:
    http://www.whitney.org/bitstreams/

    Then go to the Artists section and look for MATMOS. When you get there, listen to their song L.A.S.I.K. (it's from the album, A chance to cut is a chance to heal)

    I know several people that have had it done. They loved it. It doesn't really hurt, and by the next day you have slightly blurry vision sometimes but generally you see everything great without your glasses. I have been told though that you can smell your eyes burning, so just be prepared.

    *Ouch* It hurts already. Ive been
    thinking about it myself. Our local
    rock radio stations host had it done.
    He was talking about it, and said
    he can see pefectly. He recomended
    it to anyone willing to go under. I want
    to do it too, but not yet. No scrill. I heard
    its not really that expensive though.

    My dad's been a firefighter for over 25 years and he's had to wear glasses for all of those years... he's getting the Lasik deal hooked up soon and the state's paying for it because it will directly imrove the level of protection and ability of the department.

    So, that said, it's a damn fine thing. I've heard it equated to getting an ocular manicure... quick and easy. The only thing that "hurts" is the shit they put in your eyes to numb them out. But don't be a pussy.

    my boss and her husband had it, she said it was fine for her, but her husband had it 2 times. she said both times his eyes began bleeding afterwards and that he was in bad shape for a while, but once they healed, the surgery worked great.

    One of my teachers had it done on both eyes this past summer.
    He said it was one of the best desicions he ever made....

    Dude had it done in Portland, they had a close up of his eye (eye lid pulled tightly back by cold little metal things ) and a gloved doctor's hand reaching for his eye (it was actually quite disturbing) on the front page of a local paper.

    Not to expensive at all is it, 1000 buck a pop right?

    at a tool concert they had a backdrop playing film, one of the things they played was a film of the thing lunatic was talking about, it showed the hooks being put inside the eye, the eyelid being pulled open, the eye moving around franticly, and water being poured into the eye...it was messed up, but it was cool to see in a way...
