Hope this gets to you in time!
I had LASIK in July 98 on both eyes. It was wonderful, but my right eye just didn't quite get corrected enough, and my distance vision just wasn't quite what I needed. I had the right only redone in Feb 99 (no additional cost) and it's worked like a charm. I occasionally need reading glasses for small print (maps and such) but live, swim and drive without.
We were having a very hot, dry summer when I had mine done and I needed lots of artificial tears the first several weeks. With the Feb surgery, I used them off and on, but not near as much as before.
My neighbor had it by the same surgeon last month and is thrilled.
