    Question Lasik and improved shooting?

    Hey to all who have had Lasik and have some results as to their shooting ability, ie. sight picture and your results.

    I have a shooting coach that had it done before I met him and he is a shining example of what I want to see for results. I am about to make an appointment in Denver to get this done. Any comments?

    Thanks, Bob

    I've never needed or had lasik, but if it improves your eye sight, I can't imagine it not helping your shooting.

    The best thing I ever did for myself. The best money I ever spent. Life changing. I had worn glasses and/or contacts for 40 years. My eyes were -5/-5.5 (or -500/-550). That's darn near blind. I was a candidate for B&L zyoptic surgery that corrects almost everything in the eyes. Came out 20/15. 57 years old and only need reading glasses if I'm going to read a lot.

    Lasik is fantastic!! I wish it had been around in my younger days. No regrets since I got mine done 9 years ago. And kingdaddyoh, mine were -9/-9.5!

    Seriously, you make me feel better about doing it. Thanks

    I cannot over stress how pleased I've been. A few weeks of drops and a little cloudy vision along with some halos at night for a life time of perfect vision...yep, a no brainer.

    My young bride and I both had it done at the same time. Neither of us would hesitate to go for it again. And the technology is even better than when we got ours.

    The Army did both my eyes $5,000.00 worth (paid by the Army) to correct my eyes.

    Now I have 20-15 each eye.

    Gotta love it

    I have been on the Air Force waiting list for 4 years for this. It's good to hear that so many are happy with it. I would imagine that it would improve shooting if it helped your vision. I hate when I am looking thru my scope at a possible meal and my contacts begin to dry.

    Having worn glasses and contacts for 50+ years and from your comments at my next eye appointment I will check in Lasik for myself.

    I have commented on this before. I had it done 10 years ago. If I had to be done every year so worth it in many ways. Best money ever spent. My vision was -7.25 and now 20/15. Tiger Woods had it done not because he needed glasses to see wanted to have an edge on the course.
