The discussion on surgery is interesting, as is the bit about contacts.
I'd like to solicit thoughts on eyeglasses too.
I tried contacts for awhile. Worked wonders for wooing but just didn't
work out for computer work. My eyes would (and do) tend to dry out, not
severely but noticeably. But more importantly, I just didn't feel I
could see the screen as well. I went through two eye doctors - the first
I'm sure was an idiot, but the second came well-recommended and seemed
competent. He said "here, try these, but you'll probably be happier just
using glasses", and I am. I don't mind wearing glasses, even though my
wife wishes I would mind. ;-)
So, are there any special considerations wrt glasses that I should bring
up with the eye doctor when I go, for computer use? What about the eye
exam itself? I often feel that the doctor is rushing through the process
and wonder how I should answer his questions. Maybe it comes from my DSP
training but I can usually interpolate and figure out what that letter
on the bottom row is, even though it's barely more than a blur. Should I
tell the doc "no I can't see it" when it's more blurry than I'd want to
read over a long period, etc.
How do you get the most out of your myopia correction?

right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
