If your vision is 20/80 or worse, I would suggest you go for the surgery (if the surgery doesn't work, your vision won't be much worse than it is pre-surgery). If it's better than 20/80, I'd just as soon stick with the glasses/contact lenses. The odds are definitely in your favor for the surgery coming off without a hitch so if you really want it, you shouldn't be afraid but you should be aware that not every surgery is successful. You don't want to wake up one morning and realize that you made a mistake so make sure you know the risks and benefits in great depth before committing to the surgery.
