So I've just gotten up from my mandated post-Lasik nap, and here are my initial thoughts:
I'll keep this brief since I'm not really supposed to be spending time on the computer. Another report after my 24-hour follow up tomorrow.

Hey Andrew, Can you elaborate a bit more on #3?
Sure. Regarding #3, I'd had a number of folks who'd had lasik tell me that, contrary to what some folks say, it's painful. I don't agree with that assessment. The procedure itself was painless. Between the procedure and when I finally fell asleep, the discomfort was one of feeling that I could not open my eyelids (try having someone drive you home with your eyes close, but not sleeping...it's a weird sensation), combined with discomfort from light sensitivity.
So to reiterate...for me, at least, it never got to the point of what I'd call painful, but it's not something I'd rush to do every day, either. And again, once I got up from my nap I was fine. My eyes don't yet feel 100% "normal" but I wouldn't expect that yet. But my eyesight is definitely dramatically improved.
