    Is laser eye surgery a permanent fix for people with bad vision?

    I've had it done and its the best thing that i've could have done for my eyes. I currently have 20/10 vision which is better than 20/20.

    I don't think its a permanent fix, because as you get older your vision will get worse. But you should consult with a doctor.

    I had my consultation at the end of 2011, and was up for either LASIK or PRK. When the doctors found out that I was boxing they quickly recommended PRK rather than risk my eye fold opening after a punch if I had gone the LASIK route.

    Months later I couldn't be happier. Sure, it took longer to heal and there was the inconvenience of having to get surgery one eye at a time but it worked. My eyes haven't been this clear since kindergarten.

    Are they permanent? Definitely not since naturally everyone's eyes get worse around 40, but until then I can enjoy the luxury of not needing glasses or contacts, both of which I relied heavily before.
