I had lasik done well before I started kiting, but now that I do kite I am VERY glad I did.
When I got my operation done, they said 6 months before I could participate in any "motorized" watersports.
As time has gone one, and the doctors have learned more about how the eye reacts to this proceedure, the time off the water has gone way down.
Your best bet is to talk to a counselor at one of the lasik centers in your area.
FYI, there are newer and better/healthier forms of laser corrective surgery on the market. You should explore those as well. Beware that they might come at an increased cost.
Also, When I got my eyes done my credit was retty shotty...so I did not qualify for thier financing (at 20% intrest) but I did qualify for thier "in-house" financing (at 0% intrest
) my $1400 proceedure was paid off in 10 months.
I would recommend it to anybody...but beware of a few let-downs after the surgery.
