I`m strongly considering getting my eyes lasered, because I`m fed up with my glasses. Are there people here with knowlegde or experience in this area? Or people who have undergone similar treatments? I'd like to know your experiences. I'd probably go for a LASIK treatment in which they cut a flap in your cornea, laser away, then put and stroke the flap it back into position. The flap will heal and attach to the cornea again. Good as new (according to some advertisers) But here's a research (from a more reliable source) showing that the join is very weak and the flap will always remain there, making the eye very vulnerable afterwards. My faith in scientific integrity (outside of the exact sciences) has taken a blow recently, so I'd like to hear some expert advice (wrong forum, I know) or testimonials. And why is there some much difference in prices? Some are € 600,- and other € 3000,- per eye (extremes). I couldn't find much about it. Only that the cheaper companies are much less profit oriented. Less people in commission. They don't drive big expensive cars and the institute hasn't the look like a state-of-the-art science lab (the public view of it anyway, most labs look like basements), no unnecessary plasma screen displays or big marble floors. Can such price difference come from that? All I really care about are my eyes and I believe they are in good hands wherever I go, since such 'medical treatments' are obliged to meet certain standards by law.
