34. Original Half-Life Nov 17, 2004, 11:51 Patrick
I know this is heresy, but I never actually finished HL. Now I cannot find the CD to try again. Anyone know of a link to a synopsis of the events that unfolded in the original? Is there a flashback or anything in HL2? I tried Google, but I'm having trouble finding anything other than "climb the ladder, shoot the alien"-type walk throughs.

Well put, trog.
I'm a primary care physician and always recommend against it when patients ask. Sure, the risk of complication is low, but it is elective, and it's YOUR EYES at risk. A few years ago, an associate editor of the LA Times lost vision in one eye. Many have trouble with color perception and night-driving afterwards.
I understand why optometrists (non-surgeon eye docs)rarely recommend the surgery - because they will no longer be able to sell you frames, lenses, and contacts. For several years, anyway. But how come none of the attending ophthalmologists or ophtho residents (surgeons and surgeons-in-training) I know are willing to have it done?
LASIK turns your mammalian-shaped eye into an amphibian-shaped eye. Maybe it doesn't matter in the long run, but for the majority of people vision is the sense we are most dependent on. Why risk it? Glasses/contacts really aren't that bad.
