In brief: Absolutely
Lasik does a terrific job of providng glasses and contact lens freedom - in the right people.
The procedure is fast, easy to tolerate and works great, but you must be a good candidate. Have an evaluation with a laser vision specialist in your area; this should be someone who specializes in only laser vision correction.

In brief: It does work
Lasik does work.
Whether it is worht it depends on a number of factors: patient motivation cost level of vision correction. Whether the (small) risks are worth it to the patient. Taking personal medical advice from qualified ophthalmic professionals is essential.

In brief: FDA.gov has info
Stay away from anyone that makes promises in medicine and surgery.
I believe that the lasik surgeon should be the one to examine the patient (pre-op) and follow the patient after lasik surgery (post-op). The presence of conditions such as cataracts, presbyopia, dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetes damage may eliminate you as candidate use www.Certificationmatters.Org or www.Facs.Org as a starting point.

In brief: Lasik
Lasik is one of the most common safest and cost effective elective procedures performed today.
It is also very precise/accurate for vision correction. It is definitely worth it.
