Vision Correction with Lasik. Years ago, in the early '90's I worked with a woman who had the laser eye surgery performed. I was surprised because at the time she was in her late '70's. She was thrilled with the results, though and recommended the procedure to others. I had often thought of having eye surgery performed to correct my vision. I don't much mind wearing my contacts, though and that's probably my main reason for not having it done.
