What is the price these days, for both eyes being lasered, and any extra charge/complications for astigmatism?

Has anyone noticed any difference with their night vision or their peripheral vision?

I was tempted a few years ago to get it done but I ride a motorbike all year round. I was warned that laser surgery could affect my night vision.
Luckily, the amount of heroin I use is harmless. I inject about once a month on a purely recreational basis. Fine. But what about other people less stable, less educated, less middle-class than me? Builders or blacks for example. If you're one of those, my advice to you is leave well alone. Good luck.

Mine was expensive but worth the freedom😀 plus I was offered 10 months interest free credit.
It's easier to beg for forgiveness, than ask for permission.

My missus actually struggled with headlight glare etc more prior to her surgery.

Had lens replacement last December
Was offered it same price as laser, had both done same day, didn't feel a thing, next morning drove my car back to Birmingham for the check up. I had one done slightly different so that I could still see a bit better close up( had them done for distance) First few weeks they can itch a little bit and feels a bit strange adjusting to them. But so far I'm glad I had them done, no more glasses for anything distance wise. Just a pair of £1 ones for night time reading

My night vision is tip top, as is peripheral.

Not having glasses on the bike was a revelation, well maybe not that strong as I did use single use contacts, but I can honestly say I have not had one negative thought about it and recommend it to anyone who can have it.
It's always easier to believe something than understand it.

2 Experiences.
1) Mine - had both eyes done privately (1 month apart) due to cataracts - NHS won't pay until you are effectively blind :(. Absolutely no problems with the OP, no pain or discomfort, but it didn't fix all the issues - had to go back for some supplemental light sabre work, and this was fine also.

2) My mate - utter disaster from Optical Express, eyesight ended up worse than before and they couldn't give a fook. Tried to get a refund, no dice - read the T&C's they said.

So I'd find an NHS ophthalmic surgeon instead of someone offering to do it cheaply.
