I had lasik surgery done in Windsor Ontario before it was approved in the US. That would have been about 1998 or so. Don't recall the year exactly. I had very severe astigmatism, having worn bottle-bottom glasses since I was a young kid including bifocals as a teen. Since I had lasik at age fifty plus, I have had zero problems, with 20/20 and near 20/20 vision. No complaints from me.

I had mine done about ten years ago when I was in my mid 40s. Before that, from the time I was a kid, the only time I had my glasses off was when I was in the shower or washing my face. Other than that, the first thing I did in the morning was put on my glasses and the last thing I did when I was ready for sleep was to put my glasses on the nightstand.... where I could find them without the ability to see them in the morning. If I ever had my glasses knocked off for some reason, I'd better have somebody with me, because I wasn't going to be able to find them back by myself.

Since the Lasik surgery, I can see things good up close and I can see things good at a distance. The only real problem has been a bit of a loss of night vision... just to the extent that I have a hard time tying on a new fishing lure in low-light conditions.

Getting rid of the eyeglasses was one of the best things I've ever done for myself.

Hmm, I’m the same as you, in my 20’s and have considered getting it done.
