I'm scheduled to have LASEK done this week (not because I'm not a candidate for LASIK, but because my doc thinks LASEK is much better and has less risk for complications). I'm fine with that as I have the recovery time available.
My concern is that I keep reading about how "custom" eye correction is so much better, especially for night vision, but my doctor says it's all marketing hype. However, even the Bascom Palmer website (where the surgery is taking place) touts all of the advantages of going with custom.
I'm the type of person that would forever regret not going with custom if I didn't achieve at least 20/20 or I ended up with halos at night. This is sort of a one time thing and I want to do it with the best possible variables. What would you guys do in my shoes?
wait what doctor says it marketing hype, your lasik doctor who would operate you? Wait, if he knows there is hype behind every procedure, why is he doing it then, oh yea money. Actually logicalyl custom should be better, if it takes your personal print of your cornea, problem is does it really do wonders, or are there the sme risks?
