>>The Wiki article on LASIK says the risk of significant loss of vision with LASIK is 1 in 10,000. <<

Ah, Wiki. A good source for information about pop culture. I am sure its background on Donny Osmond is quite exhaustive.

Anyone who uses Wiki as a source should bear the results of their own research.

>>Is there some particular reason that you seem so determined to frighten people away from getting a medical procedure done that might make them happier?<<

Yes — they should be concerned about long-term blindness. Except in extreme cases this operation makes no sense.

As I said, eyes cannot be replaced. It might be worth the risk to some. Not to me.

Ah, Wiki.

If you have a contradictory source to refute it, I'm open to reading it.

As I said, eyes cannot be replaced. It might be worth the risk to some. Not to me.

That's your choice, and feeling that way, you definitely shouldn't have it done. But you're not just saying what YOU'D do. You're warning people about dangers with zero evidence to support your contentions. I know a lot of people that have had the surgery, and every one of us would do it again in a heartbeat. It's improved our lives that much.
