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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My vision was never in the negatives, I did not have any astigmatism or eye diseases. It was a little worse than 20/40, but wearing glasses and contacts was the most annoying thing ever to me . Primarily wearing contacts for about nine years, I always had to deal with keeping them clean,... READ MORE

I'm 28 and have -2.75 in my left eye and -2.50 in my right. I'm booked into the Eye Institute, Auckland, New Zealand to have iLASIK next Friday. I'm pretty scared, I have a consultation/pre op on Thursday so at the moment they haven't checked my eyes and I haven't met them yet. I'm worried... READ MORE

Ive been wearing glasses for the last 15 years and i dislike the feel of it. My power is about -7.00 both eyes. Worse still, i have developed an intolerance towards contact lenses quite recently, my eyes would get itchy when i put them in. So i considered LASIK treatment. A close friend... READ MORE

I had Lasik 5 weeks ago and wanted to share my experiences with anyone going through it like I am. I'm not going to get into detail the actual procedure as plenty has been written on that but the after effects and remedy's I went through so far. I had my custom Wavefront Lasik performed by the...

I had lasik procedure done to correct my distance vision month ago. I had -5.5 on both eyes with -1.25 astigmatism. My left eye got crystal clear results within 2 days, but right eye is still noticeable blurry after a month allday for near and far vision. Right eye vision is not improving, it is... READ MORE

Since it's actually been around one year since I went through LASIK eye surgery, I thought about sharing my overall experience. I got prescription glasses for myopia when I was in 7th grade and always was not happy about it. I consulted my ophthalmologist many times in order to find any possible... READ MORE

I had my lasik surgery 2 years ago with Dr. Booth. I was really conflicted because I defined myself by my glasses. After I had my surgery I feel like my personality changed. I never wore makeup or did my hair before and now I am completely girlie! The surgery itself was not bad. I have bad... READ MORE

I was 24 when I had LASIK done on both eyes. I was nearsighted with a slight astigmatism in one eye. I hadn't needed glasses until I was about 11 years old and then didn't wear them full time until college. In my mind's eye, I always saw myself without glasses, so when I had the opportunity to...

Signed in for my surgery, was given a valium. About 30 min. later I was called back and given some numbing eye drops, Dr. Dempsey cut the flap, walked down the hall and Dr. Filutowski finishes the procedure. While the laser was firing to remove corneal tissue it smelled like burning chicken... READ MORE
