I stumbled across this website after googling "Is LASIK Safe?" "LASIK reviews" "LASIK FAQ" hours before my surgery. It is presently 01:48 Mountain time and my appointment is scheduled for at 10:00. After reading horror story after horror story, perusing the "LASIK Complications" website and... READ MORE

I got glasses when I was 7. It was revolutionary, I remember looking around in wonder as my Dad drove me home from picking them up. I had never known you could see the leaves on the trees from a distance before, I thought everyone simply saw an amorphous fuzz of green. At 11 my prescription... READ MORE

I have wanted to do LASIK for awhile, but recently it's really been something I want done. We are going on a Cruise in October, so a few months ago I gave myself a goal to have it done before then. I can hardly wait to wear all the cute sunglasses, and watch tv in bed without my glasses on. Oh... READ MORE

Once I decided to go for it, I read every LASIK horror story I could find. Though 9 different acquaintances came back with nothing but rave reviews, I knew there would be risks. I knew the structural integrity of my eyes would never be the same. These risks could dramatically affect my quality... READ MORE

This is the end of a very long journey for me, one that has led me all the way from Australia to Mumbai, India. I wish I had more time to reflect but I have to be up early for surgery tomorrow and thought writing something is better than nothing. My background is that I have extreme hyperopia,... READ MORE

They tell you it will feel like getting soap in your eye, which it does, but they don't tell you that it feels like getting soap in your eye and can't wash it out. The whole procedure lasted less than 20 minutes. I'd suggest asking for extra numbing drops throughout for more comfort because they... READ MORE

I'm 28 years old, and have been wearing contacts for almost half my life. I started wearing contacts when I was about 13 years old. I was not a very responsible lens wearer, as one might expect of a teenager. My parents suggested that I wear glasses, but I was pretty strong willed and did NOT... READ MORE

My LASIK procedure is scheduled for 9/3/13 - and I am scared senseless after reading the material that was given to me. I am 26 and have been in glasses for 8 years. My prescription has been stable for 5 years (currently -1.50 in the right eye and -1.75 in the left). I read through the risks of... READ MORE

Hello everyone, Looking at all the negative stuff written about lasik, I thought I should share my experience, since it is a positive one. I wore contact lenses for about 14 years. I couldn't wear glasses because my diopters were so high (-7.5 and -8.0) I would get a headache right behind... READ MORE

I went to TLC in Chesterfield Mo. My husband had it done a year prior. He too enjoys his results! I had worn glasses since I was 5 and couldn't see without them, 26 years was long enough! My left eye has always been lazy but was corrected a lot, not perfect but I knewrecommend it towouldn't... READ MORE

Wavelight Allegretto Laser surgery was the best decision I ever made.  I was scared and hesitant about having the procedure at first.  Being dependent on glasses and contacts left me feeling disabled.  I never thought my eyes were capable of seeing so clear, it was like a miracle... READ MORE

Five years ago, if I spread my hand out, and touched my thumb to my nose, I couldn't see my pinkie. I couldn't see the time for the clock, let alone the trees for the forest. I was 21 when I had Lasik: an early bird in some sense, but my wretched pinkie vision gracefully hadn't... READ MORE

I have been dependent on glasses or contacts to see as I suffered from an astigmatism for 20 years. As a television sports reporter, my job is to SEE the action. Whether it's a homerun, a touchdown or the scoreboard, it seemed like the further away those things were, the more difficult it became... READ MORE

I received custom lasik from dr. Yaghouti. My previous prescription was just a -1.5 in each eye, with a mild astigmatism in the right. Going on a week now after surgery, my vision is great. My complaint is that my Astigmatism is definitely not gone. It seems better than before, but is definitely... READ MORE

I am Active Duty United States Air Force. I signed up to have this procedure done after much procrastination. I got orders to Korea and being overseas last time, wearing contacts and glasses was hard. Korea is a great country but they do not have the cleanest facilities when you are out and... READ MORE

It was hard to wear glasses right from waking up to going back to sleep. Contact lenses were never really friends of mine, so I'm sure you understand how uncomfortable it got when I had to attend a party or any occasion and didn't have an option but wear glasses -_- So I finally went for it. I... READ MORE

I am in college and am about three weeks post-op. Having worn glasses/contacts since elementary school, it is absolutely wonderful to be able to see clearly without them. And knowing that my vision is improving by each passing day, Dr. Chynn told me that I will be seeing 20/20 by the end of the... READ MORE

== Decisions and Pre-op : I have had hypermetropia all my life, and it never really bothered me, even though my right eye could not see much at all. I could read well, from close and far. As for many people like me, with glasses on, it felt I could see worse than without ( it takes a lot of time... READ MORE

I had this done almost 2 months ago in Hamilton, Ontario. Before surgery was 20/40. At my last appointment I am now 20/20. They said I still have some swelling which is normal and still a bit dry. I do have a con though. The day of surgery I was told I needed prescription eye drops and they... READ MORE
