Let me take you through my entire experience with LASIK before, during, and after the procedure. I share a lot of information, so below are timestamps for each section.

1:05 - You can't go blind from LASIK
1:36 - Is LASIK safer than contacts?
2:20 - My eye history (My prescription was -4.25 / -4.5)
3:52 - Why LASIK was a good choice for me
4:40 - First step: The Consultation

Note: I am not an expert. Please do your research if you're seriously considering LASIK. If you decide to do it, make sure you go with a reputable doctor with years of proven excellence. Don't compromise for a lower price and less experienced doctor because these are your EYES we're talking about! Good luck :)
