Have you had laser eye surgery in Philadelphia? Can you tell me your overall experiences? Can anyone tell me the approximate costs for the surgery and the normal year's worth of check-ups required, and can you recommend a provider in this area?

I'm thinking about finally getting the surgery. Doctor said I would be a good candidate last year. I can max my FSA to $2,500 and reserve probably $1,500-2,000 of it. My insurance also gives me 15% off, so I think my husband and I can swing the rest out of pocket, depending on how much it costs.
FWIW, I'm 27 year old, and currently my vision is stable at -5.50 and -5.75. I've been wearing glasses since preschool and cannot remember a time I could see clearly without correction. Contacts have started to irritate my eyes more (only because I wear them for too long) than they did when I was young. I'm eager to see again! Thanks in advance!
