FWIW, I discovered I'm not a candidate for LASIK, dammit. My glasses include
a fair amount of prism in the right lens to correct a moderately severe
tendency to turn in and up and take a few seconds to turn back enough to
make the two images mate up. (Hyperphoria and esophoria, I believe he said.)
At any rate, while they can correct the nearsightedness and astigmatism, I'd
still ahve to wear glasses...so I decided not to bother. This was at a place
that did not advertise their low, low price, either.

Oh well, I have better places to spend that $5K...just wish I could convince
the HR folks that an OM-3Ti and a 35-80/2.8 is a legitimate medical expense
that I can pay for out of my pre-tax medical account...
