Quote:I had it done about six months ago. It's been great for me. I do see starbursts at night still when driving but they are very limited in the scope. I do still use my wide field eyepieces for planets but as I follow the planets with my central vision I do not see any adverse effects from the surgery. Next week I will be going in to have my dominant eye touched up as my vision is currently 20/35 in that eye. One thing I can say is colors are much more intense since the first surgery, especially star colors. Prior to the surgery red stars were hard for me to see. Now they are easy. Double stars showed very little color rendition, now it stands out well. It's like my eyes were operating more like they were when I first got in the hobby in the very early 80's. If I had the chance to go back to before I had the surgery would I? Yes, yes, and yes again. Oh, and night vision, when driving, is much improved as well. Even with the star bursts I still see far better into darker areas on the side of the road and have no issues seeing the road itself.
