It is normal for anyone, including you, to experience fearful thoughts about eye surgery of any type. After all, LASIK Eye Surgery is surgery. It is often helpful to talk to friends or relatives about their own experiences and how they overcame their fears as well as to discuss your fears with your eye surgeon or even ask to observe others having the surgery and to speak with them. For most people this is sufficient. Overcoming the barrier of LASIK cost requires a more individual approach. Many people confuse "cost" with affordability.
