    Anyone here ever had it? I am tired of dealing with contacts and glasses. I used to be able to wear contacts all day, now my eyes start to dry out after a few hours. I haven't even worn them for about 2.5 months. This is the only pricing I have been able to find - http://www.allaboutvision.com/visionsurgery/cost.htm - How was the pricing for anyone that's had it? Any other suggestions are welcome too.

    I've been thinking about it too. From what I hear, one of the best guys in Dallas costs about 3 Gs.

    I had it done 3 years ago - best money I ever spent.

    Before the surgery I was virtually blind without my contacts. The morning after the surgery I could read things at a distance with better clarity without my contacts than I ever could with them.

    I paid $5k to have mine done, but I did a ton of research and found one of the top guys in the NY/NJ area to do the surgery. I figured when I'm having someone shoot a laser in my eye, I'm not paying bottom dollar.
