Getting perfect vision

I've been thinking of getting Lasik surgery for quite some time now, but haven't really been able to decide where the get it done. The process is a bit complicated since I have astigmatism and wear rigid gas permeable lenses currently. I have heard though that Monovision Lasik is able to be done with contact lenses as well, which would be a big plus for me. Once the procedure is complete, I would not require glasses or contacts at all. Monovision has been approved by the FDA which is an important factor in making my decision on where to get the monovision Lasik procedure done. It's an important step that I would be taking and need to consult as many sources as I can.

I too have astigmatism. But there are some limitations and some risks involved in this procedure. Unless your vison is giving you real cause for concerns, you may want to endure the minor inconveniences such as glasses / contact. You may want to go thru below.

The main problems I have are with windy and dusty conditions and not being able to sleep in my lenses while traveling etc. Several of my friends have got the procedure done and are really happy with the results, although they did not have astigmatism.

Thanks for the link...will read up on it.
