Thanks for posting your query.

Yes the treatment is effective. If definitely helps in reducing the numbers or get rid of it depending upon the refraction error you have and thickness of your cornea.

Insurance company will not cover the cost, as still today this considered as cosmetic surgery.

The result of LASIK treatment depends lot on the selection of patient. Please discuss with the treating doctor about the result that he is expected and your eyes suitability for the surgery.
I hope this helps you to take an informed decision.
