I did it over 10 years ago. I've tested it on the slopes, in the dojo, and in the office. I really haven't had any problems.
However, do your homework. Whoever does your surgery should be doing lots and lots of them. The doc who did mine probably did 60+ surgeries that day. Someone else did everything except the surgery.
I knew at least 5 or 6 people who had used the place. It was incredible.
Without it, I don't think I could snowboard. My vision was horrendous...coke bottle glasses and contacts wouldn't work.
