Lasik or Intacs?

I've been wanting to get Lasik for a while, and am having a consultation about it Wednesday morning. However, I noticed a comment on the 43things goal about Intacs and it sounds way more pleasant:

-no lasers
-no corneal destruction
-inserts can be removed later on, and/or replaced with different sizes if vision has changed

Has anybody out there gotten Intacs, or heard anything good/bad about it?

What song's playing nonstop in your head?

A Thought

For some reason I've recently begun noticing how people (myself included) tend to react strongly to things, especially external things outside our direct control.

The thing to remember is, life is simply a series of impermanent events.

Some are pleasant, some are unpleasant.

That's all.
