    I wanna know who came up with the idea to use a tool that causes blindness to fix the blindness.

  12. JakeFilmzProduction

    That looks like ti would hurt having your eyes open for like about 15 minutes, and with tape over your eye

  13. Lazy Productions inc

  22. bill budnic

    Had this surgery 15 years ago. Waking up the next morning and seeing the ceiling fan in my bedroom crystal clear was a life changing moment. So glad I had the surgery. It sounds scarier than it is. Was done in 15 minutes.

  33. Viraj Bhimani

    In all seriousness, beware of some side effects like glare, starbursts and halo. I had LASIK in February- 2021. I still see glare at night. Although have to say, the daytime vision is near perfect. In rare cases like mine, the side effects may last forever.

    the ophthalmologist: take those eyes
