I've had glasses since I was 5 years old, I'm now 23... Laser eye surgery.. your thoughts?

I've had glasses since I was 5 years old, I'm now 23 and don't want them anymore. Plus contacts really aren't my thing. I've tried them before & would just get too frustrated with them, I'd rather wear my glasses. Have you had laser eye surgery or know someone who did? Is it worth getting? An optometrist already said I'm a good candidate for it.
Answers:   I've known one person who did and was very unhappy with it. But her problem was that she was in her 40's and when they corrected her problems with distance vision it left her needing to wear reading glasses and her distance vision wasn't perfect. She also had a lot of pain with it. That isn't a terribly valid thing to base your decision on though as you are in your 20's.
Totally, I just got mine 2 months ago. And working out GREAT! You go girl!
