I can definitely recommend the eye surgery (I believe the LASEK is the more modern option but might be wrong) as I have done it myself. Of course do it only if you have a poor sight as it may not make it 100% perfect. I had a high prescription so for me it was like getting a new life.
I would suggest to choose a clinic that has high rating and offers guarantee as in case of any problems, you would be covered by the clinic and potentially have a correction done on their cost.
It was a case for me - apparently I was their nightmare customer - I had two corrections done to my right eye and was under their supervision for 2 years. Still I have never regretted I have done it in first place and it will be 4 years in October from the first surgery. Now I can wear sunglasses if I want to and still see through them ;)
