I saw a TV news style documentary not that long ago (something like 60 minutes) regarding complications with Lasik. A reasonable number of fairly major side effects have occurred. Things like very dry eye, constant pain, vision issues, with some patients even contemplating suicide, saying things like "it ruined my life". To be fair, there are many, many happy patients as well.

If it were me, I think I would wear glasses.

At the minimum, know the risks, and ensure they are acceptable to you!
