    I had LASIK (specifically Micro-lasik) almost 2 years ago. I do not regret it at all, though there's a big caveat:

    Depending on numerous factors - especially your corneal thickness - getting LASIK may lead to drier eyes. Simply because going through the procedure means you come out with less cornea, which helps with moisture retention amongst other things I don't know since I'm not a doctor.

    If you are sick to death of itchy, dry eyes and the morning/nighttime ritual...then this is the biggest thing to be aware of. My eyes are a bit drier after getting LASIK, but the benefits have outweighted the cons.

    Some people whose corneal structures are different unfortunately have to use eyedrops for several months/years/rest of their lives.

    Good luck and a good doctor should explain to you fully the importance of your corneal thickness and all the implications that come with getting this procedure.
