Has anyone had bad outcomes & experiences from Lasik surgery?

I'm having lasik surgery on both my eyes in 5 days. Thats how horrible my vision is. Of course i'm scared. I'm just scared that if something goes wrong, then the outcome can just rob whats left of my pitiful vision. Does anyone have anything bad to say about lasik?

Lasik eye surgery is very safe nowadays. My cousin got her dental implants and Lasik surgery in India by a company called Indian Health Guru Consultants. The Price for dental and Lasik surgery is very less in India. She paid 25% of the price she was quoted in America.
Indian Health Guru Consultants is very famous in India They arrange Dental surgery, jaw surgery, Lasik eye surgery, Dental Implants etc for foreign patients in India. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and magazines- about their patient stories.They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low cost, as dental and eye surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.

Hi, I am also planning on having lasik surgery for both of my eyes. I have a -3.75 vision on both.
Hmm...I am also feeling the same way as you are. We have an eye center here near our place and so far, there have been no negative comments about it. Patients have to undergo a screening first prior to the surgery.
I have been wearing soft contact lenses for awhile now and the doctor there advised me not to wear them for a week prior to a screening.
Screening would cost around Php 1,000 (Philippine peso) or roughly US$22.22 but this would be reimbursed once you decide to have surgery done. Operation cost for both eyes would cost Php 40,000.00 or aound US$888.88.
Cheap. But then again, I'm having second thoughts like you as well.
