I have all the details set, but I'm looking for personal stories about laser eye correction, particularly LASIK and PRK.

I had the consultation today and was told I am an ideal candidate for laser correction. I'm planning for this summer. I have to do one eye at a time because I'm using my FSA to pay for the surgery and the max per year is a bit more than the per eye cost.
I know about each surgery and the pros and cons, but I'm looking for personal experiences with each type of surgery. Other anecdotes are helpful, too. I just want to know what your overal experience with PRK or LASIK was like. I also realize that if I choose LASIK there's a chance they won't be able to do LASIK that day and may end up doing PRK after all. I'm not worried about that. If relevant, I am seeing Dr. Stephen Orlin
at the Scheie Eye Institue in Philadelphia. Thanks!
