Olivia is betting LASIK
@jack just anecdotal, but among my family ~⅓ had permanent vision damage. It was significantly corrected over time, but still permanent

Olivia is betting LASIK
@jack if I understand right, they put the flap back incorrectly, so there was essentially a crack in Ber vision. I am told it has been reduced to the point where it is mostly not noticable

@jack Mostly concerned about presbyopia and surgical artifacts like those Olivia mentioned.

This is, by far, the best comparison I could find on the subject of laser eye surgery: https://journals.lww.com/jcma/Fulltext/2022/02000/Comparison_of_clinical_outcomes_of_LASIK,.3.aspx#T1

And my conclusion after reading that: PRK is BAE. I'm even planning on getting it myself now.
