    I know you guys get posts like this all the time, but I can't seem to
    find exactly what I'm looking for.

    I'm going for a consultation at Lasik Plus in Baltimore. I know that
    technology has changed in the past few years, so I'm trying to find out
    what the latest issues are. I'm currently 26 years old and my
    prescription hasn't changed is a few years.

    -Does anyone have good or bad to say about Lasik Plus in Baltimore?
    -Are there options which are considered better? (I've read that
    Universities are considered higher tech than Lasik centers in general)
    -Regarding side effects, how permanent and common are they? Do the
    halo's really stop after 6 months?
    -Is there a time of year better than other times to have the surgery
    performed (winter vs summer)?
    -I know that Lasik Plus has tons of "special offers". What is a
    reasonable price for the surgery regardless of location?
    -One concern is growing old with Lasik. What is the risk of losing eye
    sight when I'm 70 because of the surgery alone? Are there 70 year olds
    who have had Lasik performed years ago?
    -What should I specifically ask my doctor?
    -Is there a true website out there for concerned patients that isn't
    financed by the Lasik doctors?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    I also posted this in the alt.lasik-eyes to get a different
    perspective.

    I'd say Glenn Hagele did a pretty fine job of answering this one on the
    Lasik group.....
