any comment on the laser treatment to correct eye sight? I have been thinking of this lately, but not sure if it is safe. Any limitation?

Yah... Hyperopia is not the same as "lau hwa yan" which is presbyopia. Their defects are pretty similar, except that in hyperopia, it is due to short eyeball or cornea being thinner than normal. For older people, it is the lens that becomes hardened or inflexible.

For those pple who hyperopia or myopia, maybe it's time to consider laser surgery? Personally, I can tell you it's worth far more than what your ED/L lenses, D1x, 1D, or whatever can offer! It's definitely worth saving up over buying a $4000 or $8000 DSLR body with expensive lenses. Well, of cos, it's not fair to say one should sell away all the lenses to go for the surgery. But given a choice, I'd delay buying the 300 f/2.8 or D60 and seriously consider the surgery.

For those whose refractive powers are not too high, laser surgery gives good to excellent correction. It sounds scary at first and you'll hear a lot of old wives' tales of the dangers and some untrue rumors. But it's often safer than what you think. But as in all surgeries, there could be side effects but not sight-threatening.

Once you rid of the glasses, it feels being "new". Photography is so much "easier" and fun... no extra glass betn your eye and the viewfinder, no fogging, no dry eyes from contacts and you can do lots of stuffs before being impeded by glasses. You will prob look better too --handsome/pretty?? :)

The best lenses I have ever bought are my Lasik eyes. Beats any ED or L glass I've ever used.
