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.

Okay, so I wanna get permanent eye brows. Mine are so light you cannot see them. I have to draw them on. Know anyone who has ever had permanent eyebrows and the results? I would think they would fade, much like tattoos.
