How often does LASIK blind people?
I do not believe there are any cases at all where LASIK has blinded anyone. If there were to be one, it would undoubtedly be part of a much more complex situation than straightforwardly treating myopia.
This is not to say there are no people who have ever had serious complications or suffered some loss of full vision as a result.
