I've met many people who done laser eye surgery, mostly Lasik.
Most of them are very happy and even call it the best decision they've ever made. However, some suffer from minor (or not so minor) side effects.
Mostly the side effects are bright light sensitivity, dry eyes, flashes, glare sensitivity, abnormal astigmatism, problems with seeing up close and more...
Some go back to glasses within the first 5 years after the surgery, other are completely fine until their 40's-50's when they need reading glasses.

As someone who has bad eyesight I dream of being able to see well without any assistance (glasses/contacts), however, all the side effects and the dishonesty of some doctors who are taking the risk to operate for money, despite the risk for side effects for some patients and the system backing them up I don't want to risk... This is my personal opinion. Many of my friends and acquaintances done it.
