Lasik transformed Mrs. IDP's life. She was so blind, we decided to look into it the moment we heard they were abandoning the scalpel for this procedure and using a laser. A month later, she had her appointment, and the next day, she could see.
Since we did it early in Lasik's technological infancy, we paid the premium price. Just under $6000 when all was said and done, if I remember correctly. Within a year, the price was half that. That stung a little bit, but then again, what is the value of being able to see? She went from being a degree away from clinically blind without glasses or contacts, to 20-20 vision - in a day.
That's miracle stuff, that.
