    Yeah, more and more people with high prescription accept the lasik eye surgery to make the vision get the normal situation. The price of lasik eye surgery is high, ranging variously according to the different prescription. However, there exists the risk which is not for everyone. The eye vision may get back to the formal bad state or it becomes worse. However, for many people, it is still worthy to accept the surgery to help them get the healthy eyes.

    I also have such doubts before, I doubt whether it is worthy for me to take the risk and cost. But, I still accept the surgery to treat my eyes. Now, my eyes are very good and vision is very clear. I believe that if you choose a good hospital and receive a high quality surgery, it is completely without risks, so you don't have to worry about too much.


    LASIK, which is short for "laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis" is for the vision correction procedures, with a relative lack of pain afterward, and good vision is usually achieved by the very next day. About the risks: If you are considering to take the LASIK eye surgery, and are worried about the risks, you might take comfort in knowing that sight-threatening complications from laser vision correction are rare. And it is said that in the most cases , the undesired outcomes after LASIK surgery can be corrected with additional surgery or with medical treatment, such as in the case of dry eyes. About the price: The cost of a LASIK eye surgery can differ widely from one provider to another and it depends on many factors. But the average cost might be about $2,000. As far as I'm concerned, it is OK to take such an eye surgery for your nearsightedness since it is with low risk and acceptable cost. And I've already received Lasik surgery 4 years before and I feel quite good with that.
