I also have astigmatism, it's minor though. The LASIK center's around here have various maintenance packages where I can get my eyes adjusted later in life if my vision changes. It'll jack the price up a fair amount, but I think it'll be worth it.
Just be sure you go to the best LASIK doctor that you possibly can. Spend the money to get the best.
Yeah, I'm told the local LASIK center is about $1,750 per eye including the lifetime adjustments package. It's a lot of money but I think about how much I spend on contacts, glasses, solution, eye appointments and the time I waste cleaning them / using them will be phenomenal. Still a little bit nervous but excited. :)
How long did you have to wait before you can ride again?
