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

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

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

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 got problems in my vision after Lasik , I see glare and problem at night and the point is that since 3 years after surgery I am using glasses again. I visit another doctors and after checking they informed me that because of surgery my Cornea has become thin after surgery.This is happened to... READ MORE

I had my LASIK procedure done yesterday. I was calm going into the appointment, I had met with the doctor and was very confident in his and his staff's abilities. I have pretty good vision without glasses, only very mild short sightedness in one eye but the main issue is astigmatism in both eyes... 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 am 26 with very bad eye vision it was so bad when I went to the eye doctor I couldn't read the first big letter. I was terrified to get the lasik done but after having a consult knowing how quick it takes motivated me to get it over and done with. The next day I was fine I could see clear I... READ MORE

I have severe astigmatism, make wearing contacts uncomfortable. I would wear glasses as well, but still experience discomfort due to headaches I would get. I would get them anywhere from 3-4 times a week and would nearly feel immediate relief once I took my contacts out or took off my glasses.... READ MORE

I had LASIK done a bit over a month ago at TLC Laser Eye Centers in London, Ontario, Canada. I am 21 years old and have worn glasses since I was in grade five, and contacts for eight months. I enjoyed contacts and had no problems with wearing them but once I had the taste of freedom from... READ MORE

I have worn glasses pretty much my whole life. I changed to contacts way back and have always had issues with them, from not fitting properly to bad prescription, to changing to gas permiables. On top of my near sightedness I had Astigmatism. GEE THANKS PARENTS! LOL. All kidding aside, my... READ MORE
