    My right eye has just gotten too weak to be scope accurate so I am asking if anyone has undergone the laser eye surgery successfully?? and can still use a scope???

    I will use prescription shooting glasses if I must but think the eye surgery may be less bother but need your experiences, please. Many thanks, Overbore

    Got fed up with glasses, will be five years this Dec. Went to Niagara Falls, Ontario. Then around $1200.00 total, the reason for going to Canada. Fast and painless, I drove myself up on Mon, drove home Thurs.
    I could still hunt and shoot without my glasses, but that was fast coming to an end. Since then at least three of my friend have had it done.

    I got it done about 5 years ago. It is amazing. Especially when it comes to hunting and camping. Glasses and contacts were a pain in the butt. I love it. I would easily recommend it to anyone else.
