I would definitely go for the Lasik, if you're a candidate and if you have the finances. Though, anymore, it's not hard to find places that will do it on reasonable payment plans.
I wore contacts for about ten years. I was miserable the whole time. I was a -3.75 in both eyes, had astigmatism, and a really bad problem with dry eyes. With contacts, it always felt like I had sand in my eyes. And I can remember more than once, having to literally peel my contacts off my eyeballs because my eyes were so dry.
I got Lasik about six years ago, and I would do it over again in a heartbeat, and pay twice as much! It's absolutely amazing! I'm still at 20/15. Only problems I had is that I went back to a 20/25 when I was pregnant each time (apparently pregnancy really screws with things, including your vision). My doc promised me it would correct itself after I delivered, but that if it got bad, I could get glasses or contacts for during the pregnancy. It never got bad enough for that, and sure enough, within a week of delivery, I was right back to 20/15.
I can't recommend Lasik enough. Changed my life.
